Family Guy – Stewie Goes to 12

While I’m not fond of The Family Guy’s single-minded reliance on pop-culture references in lieu of actual jokes, I can’t fault Seth McFarlane’s taste.  After all, who doesn’t love the Electric Company?

    Sesame Street – just sayin.

    but yeah – that was one of my all-time faves from the show.

    fun fact – there was a rumor that Herbie Hancock actually wrote that song. Later it was found to be penned by Walt Kramer, and also rumored to have been sung by The Pointer Sisters. this is not confirmed however.

    If anyone who’s into music on the Ninjatune label from England, there is a mix/version of this song you may run across that was done by DJ Food, who happens to be one of my faves from that label. His Kaleidoscope cd is brilliant. i don’t know if this CD is still available for purchase from the label, however.

    alpha I’d like to point out that I believe american dad is the version of family guy not solely surviving off pop culture. I’m w/ you though, and I think we’ve been through it several times, but that is why family guy must die… they ate up 30 years of useless commericalization in 2 or 3 years of FG.

    but I loved the electric company plug…. I just wish they would quit stealing my nearly obscure references.

    I am SO HAPPY this clip was posted. I saw this on Family Guy over the weekend and nearly fell out of my chair when I saw it here. I LOVE the Electric Company. Ah… fond childhood memories. cheese

    Oh… and I LOVE Sesame Street too.

    I also love the fact I mix the two up. Muddled mixed-up childhood memories they are.

    I don’t know why my brain associates that sequence with the Electric Company.  Maybe it’s because they tended to do more urban and psychedelic stuff.
