In this lil game of ours, it is easy to get 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?
With the new Quahog Heat event in town we’re getting to see some men in uniform, such as the new Erik Estrada character. But just where have we seen these characters before? Well in the Family Guy TV show of course. Erik Estrada appeared as his CHiPs character Ponch in a short but memorable appearance in the first Season of the show and then on a poster in a later season. So join me on a journey down memory lane as we stroll through his Family Guy appearance.
I NEVER MET A DEAD MAN – Season 1, Episode 2
A lot of this episode centres around Peter’s obsession with TV shows, and as a result we see quite a few referenced and parodied, and one of those is CHiPs. In this take off we see Ponch pull over and approach a blonde, and of course, female driver. Her crime according to our modest cop is she’s driving without his phone number.
As Ponch works his chat up lines to the max we see glimpses of the criminal acts he’s missing whilst he’s distracted, which includes some major drug trafficking!
And even a gunfight going on behind his back.
But neither of these is the biggest crime we see during this short parody, surely that award goes to Ponch for his chat-up lines as he tells our mystery blonde, “maybe I should arrest you for being too beautiful“.
MODEL MISBEHAVIOR – Season 4, Episode 10
***Thanks to eagle eyed Addict, baillard, who spotted another appearance by Erik Estrada whilst watching this episode earlier and kindly let me know***
It’s a blink and you’ll miss it appearance by Erik Estrada in this episode, as he only appears on a poster, which we see when Lois takes Meg into what was her childhood bedroom.
So there you have it, the short but memorable appearances of Erik Estrada. Do you remember these episode? Or have you never seen them? Do you now plan to watch them?
