More Thought Put Into Porn Parody Than Into Actual Show

LOS ANGELES — According to entertainment industry insiders, more thought, attention and effort was put into the pornographic parody of the hit show Family Guy than has gone into the show itself over the past few years.

Unlike the producers of the long-running animated Fox sitcom, the makers of Family Guy: The XXX Parody said they really they just wanted a product they could stand behind.

“Listen, I know I’m just a porn director,” said director and co-writer Lee Roy Myers, “but I don’t know if I’d be able to sleep at night if I churned out something actually akin to Family Guy.”

Family Guy was an unlikely target for Hustler Studios, who had previously produced a number of more conventional porn parodies.

“Being a cartoon and all, you have to walk a fine line,” said Ivory Lumber, who co-wrote the script with Myers. “You have to try to please everyone. From the folks who like porn to those who’ll pop it in at the end of a long day looking for a laugh, and even those weirdos who’re into watching cartoon characters they’ve grown up with finally fuck. It’s a tightrope really.”

Family Guy, known for its innovative overreliance on pop culture-related cutaway gags, itself had a rocky start. Debuting in 1999, it was cancelled after three seasons but Fox brought the show back in 2005 when there was immense fan reaction from people who had decided they would actually watch it this time.

Despite long being a staple of the source material, the producers weren’t able to use cutaways quite as effectively.

“If we need to fill some time we can’t just cut to Conway Twitty in a threesome,” said Myers. “For starters no such footage exists, plus it’s incredibly lazy.”
