One of the greatest fictional characters ever has come back from the dead.
Family Guy faced backlash from fans when the FOX series killed off its popular martini-drinking, talking dog. .
Brian is the straight man to counteract all the crazy humans and his character’s chemistry with Stewie, the talking baby, constantly made for the best episodes of any given season. The sudden death of Brian made fans take to Twitter, where they mourned using the hashtag #RIPBrianGriffin.
Many stated they wished Meg Griffin (voiced by Mila Kunis) instead. Others shared an image of Brian sitting in a car between Nelson Mandela and Paul Walker. But the beloved canine has been resurrected and show creator Seth McFarlane took to Twitter after the season finale. He wrote, “And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash.
” That was quickly followed by another tweet: “I mean, you didn’t really think we’d kill off Brian, did you? Jesus, we’d have to be fucking high.” Now that normality returned to Quahog, R.I., maybe now it’s time to appreciate Vinny, the Griffins’ temporary dog voiced by Tony Sirico, Jr., a.k.a. Paulie Gualtieri from The Sopranos. And like Seth said, it might also be time to appreciate the positive people in your own lives: friends, family, co-workers, etc. 2013 is over but gratitude is everlasting. Happy post holidays, comedy fans!
