I’ve been watching quite a lot of Family Guy at the moment and apart from grumbling that they use too many songs, I have to say that I think series creator Seth McFarlane is a disgustingly talented individual.
While trawling the internet, I discovered someone had posted his student film The Life of Larry on to gorillamask. It’s a kind of prototype Family Guy but drawn in a very different style. The fact that McFarlane himself introduces the animation suggests that he ran out of time and money, but it’s worth a look if you’re interested in the beginnings of Family Guy (and, by extension, eerily similar follow-up American Dad!).
