A little while back the multiverse transported back into our Quahogs bringing with it some fun new content including another incarnation of my favourite character Stewie Griffin.
This time we got introduced to Stu Griffin, (I will refer to him as Future Stu from now on), a new playable character we could unlock during the mini event. That is one of the things I love about the multiverse, we get full characters, not skins, thanks for that TinyCo. But where have me met Future Stu before. Well join me in a journey back in time to 2006 when Stewie Griffin – The Untold Story hit our screens. A trilogy of episodes devoted to my favourite evil baby, and Future Stu made his appearance in the 3rd of these episodes, Stu & Stewie’s Excellent Adventure.
In this episode Stewie comes across his future self, who has been travelling back in time on vacation, when Future Stu leaves, Stewie decides to stowaway and return to the future with Future Stu to see how life is treating the older version of himself. When he gets there he is horrified to find he is a 35 year old virgin who is working in a boring job and living in an apartment that’s as impressive as broccoli to him.
So Stewie decides he has to intervene to spice up Future Stu’s boring existence, and sets about setting him up on a hot date with a co-worker, this turns into a somewhat dangerous liaison that sees Future Stu not only lose his job but also watch his apartment go up in flames. Looking at the havoc he has wreaked and how his future life is now even worse than it was before he decides the only way he can fix things is to go back in time to change his future self. He finds a bad experience in his childhood caused this terrible turn of fortunes and sets about sorting this. In the process of changing things the paradox he creates sees Future Stu bite the dust.
