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 American Dad Series and find out just Where The HELL Did That Come From?
In this post, I will be covering the Origin of the Golden Turd. Stepping outside the normal Family Guy Series and into the American Dad one instead. Why is this in our game? What on earth does it have to do with American Dad? Why is it Golden? The Golden Turd is kind of a lil story line all its own. It pops up here n there throughout the series, Let’s take a look at the TV Episodes to find out just where.
Season 1, Episode 6: Homeland Insecurity
After being made to feel like he has nothing special about him, Roger tries to figure out just what he can do that will make him special in Steve’s eyes. Klaus of course messes with him. He later goes with Steve who is trying to run away. When they attempt to pull an E.T. move and fly off a cliff, but instead crash horribly in a power station. Roger gives up and goes home. The workers Jim and Mike come by later to check on the Power Station and find, a golden jewel encrusted turd. Jim is fascinated with it and knows it will make him rich…which drives him completely mad to the point of murdering Mike. Jim narrowly avoids suspicion of security and leaves the site as fast as he can. He gets to a gas station to call his wife and tell her they are rich…of course her lover picks up. Jim is devastated. And so begins the saga of the Golden Turd…to be continued.
Season 2, Episode 3: Failure is not a Factory-Installed Option

As they are in one of the many new cars discussing how they’re going to make money and get their lives back together…we see the DWP truck and Jim pass by…and so continues the Golden Turd Saga. Jim is a complete wreck. Worn and dirty clothes, driving erratically, drinking, and it is all due to the Golden Turd. He comes to a railroad crossing and contemplates what he has done. He pulls onto the tracks. Later two cops are at the scene trying to figure out why he did it. The Lieutenant, Eddie, finds the Golden Turd and tucks it in his pocket before the other officer can see him. He later is at home distraught he is almost retired and stole evidence from a crime scene, while his wife, Marylin, tries to convince him it was a good idea.

Of course…to be continued.
Season 3, Episode 12: Widowmaker
This one is just a quick glimpse at the Golden Turd. Blink and you will miss it. Roger is telling Francine about a pomegranate seed that was stuck in his teeth while she is in the kitchen. He makes a reference to how the pomegranate resembles a “Woman’s Baby Cannon”…of course this just so happens to be the 1000th joke about it. As they camera pans the crowd, you can see the Golden Turd resting by a TV stand in the crowd.
Season 5, Episode 9: Rapture’s Delight
The Rapture has hit town and Jesus is back in town. Hayley and Steve got taken with the others floating away. Roger just wants off the planet and goes in search of his spare parts to fix his Spaceship. Apparently Francine accidentally donated all the parts to Good Will. Meanwhile Francine and Stan get in an argument due to Stan wants to leave her behind and be raptured. She takes off and ends up running into the REAL Jesus at a diner. He asks her to be his girlfriend and she accepted. 7 years later…the Armageddon Wars are in full swing. Francine has been taken by the Anti Christ. Jesus and Stan try to work together to get her freed, but need some help. So they go to Roger of course. They tell him they need his spaceship to go rescue her. He informs them that it runs on precious metal, so unless they can poop out gem encrusted gold the ship isn’t going to fly. Jesus pulls out the Golden Turd from his pocket. He said found it during the battle of Boca Raton. They get the Spaceship flying and off to get Francine. Of course Roger crashes it while he tries to write a joke down.
Season 7, Episode 7: Season’s Beatings
This one is just another quick glimpse. Roger is preparing some eggnog for the Holiday and Steve tells him to just finish up already. Fill his Pimp Cup and leave. Now looking at the Pimp Cup itself, it seems to be made of a very familiar jewel encrusted golden item.
Season 10, Episode 3: Blagnarst: A Love Story
Roger and his new Alien girlfriend are out on a drive across the shoreline to see if their relationship can really work out. They pass by the Virginia State Prison…and it switches to the Golden Turd Saga. Marylin is strapped into the chair waiting for the lethal injections. She whispers, “I’m sorry son” to a man sitting in the observation area. Another man calls her a cop killer as the injections take their course. (Looks like they found out who killed Eddie.) Then it cuts to her son, Vincent, back home and saddened by it all. He is making his way upstairs to his old room. He cries over a picture of his family. He just does not understand. He thought they were just so good. Charles calls him to talk about Wyatt Bordon, one of the worst chemical polluters in the state. Charles reminds him he needs money for his upcoming election. How is he going to pay for it all? Vincent swears he will never get in with a person like Wyatt. He would rather lose the election then get in bed with that devil. Just then one of the kids outside is hit by a car and hurt bad. As he is about to run out, he steps on a loose floorboard in the room. When he pulls it up, he sees none other than the Golden Turd. He ignores the cries from the kid outside and places the Golden Turd into his suit pocket. Later at campaign headquarters, Vincent picks up the phone and calls Wyatt while gazing at the Golden Turd. Wyatt makes him smile by saying he would rather call him Mr. President.
