In this lil game of ours, it is easy to get lost and so focused into collecting items or unlocking characters that we tend to forget the lil things that make the game what it is. Like Where the HELL did these items come from and why are they in our games?
Well I am here to do just that for you. Let’s take a look at the Family Guy Series and find out just Where The HELL Did That Come From?
In this post, I will be covering the Origin of the Giant Crab, Peterdactyl, and the Lawn Tiger. These were brought more to our attention during the Exotic Animal Event. Now the question is, did these actually come from a TV Episode? Let’s take a look. (For you Netflix & Hulu veiwers, some of these episodes are listed as one off.)
Season 10, Episode 6: Thanksgiving
The Griffin’s are getting ready to sit down for Thanksgiving dinner with Bonnie and Joe. Peter is glad they can finally have guests over now that the Giant Crab is gone. Cut away to a scene of visitors attempting to come to the door but are blocked by an annoying Giant Crab that just won’t let them pass by. It just keeps repeating over n over, “Nope nope nope nope nope…” as it goes side to side preventing anyone from reaching the front door.
So a strange lil crab that popped up for only a few seconds in an episode, and it is now in our game.
Season 10, Episode 10: Quagmire and Meg
In this Episode, Quagmire is trying to hook up with a now Adult Meg. Peter wants to stop Quagmire from taking her to his cabin as he knows what goes on there. Peter takes the Pterodactyl that looks like him and rides it to save Meg. As with all the other things he attempts to fly, he crashes it …into power lines …and kills it. He then realizes that it had babies and now has to take care of them. So he expels some “food” into their mouths from his stomache. Yummy!!
You would think by now people would stop letting Peter take flight with random objects, then again…it is humorous. Makes you just wonder…where on earth is he getting/keeping all these items?
Season 12, Episode 19: Meg Stinks!
This one is a kinda inside joke item. The White Tiger it is actually mimicking is the one called Mantecore owned by Seigfried & Roy’s Las Vegas show. The same one that attacked and nearly killed Roy during one of their shows. In this episode, Brian is sprayed by a skunk and forced to live outside until the smell goes away. As he is an inside dog, he flips out he won’t make it. After several days, he is looking very wild. Stewie points out his smell is gone and he can now go back inside, but Brian refuses while snarling and biting at him. Stewie says he has turned wild, just like that Tiger that attacked Roy. Cut away to a scene of Roy laying in a hospital bed torn up. Mantecore enters and asks if he needs to get checked. (Hinting that Roy has a disease and he now has it after biting him.)
Season 11, Episode 21: Roads to Vegas
In this episode we also can see an animal that represents Mantecore. Stewie and Brian are in Las Vegas. During a montage scene of their adventures around Vegas, we can see Stewie and Brian in the audience at a magic show. Mantecore is in a cage on the stage. He is covered, but when the tarp is removed it is Stewie in the cage and Mantecore is now sitting next to Brian in the audience.
