Simpsons did it!
The Simpsons is legendary, and will always be compared to.
People seem to forget 99.9% of Family Guy doesnt copy from The Simpsons yet dwell on the 6 or 7 scenes that do. Family Guy is hilarious in its own right.

i bet alot of family guy writers grew up on the simpsons so it makes sense there would be some similarities. still, some of those comparisons are striking.

i dont think its anything new though, sitcoms and all sorts of shows have been copping each others ideas for years.

That was the whole point of the "Simpsons did it" South Park episode. They've made so god damn many episodes that it's almost impossible to make an animated series without a few similarities.

By the way, the Family Guy versions were funnier. In the blackjack scene, Peter still says "hit me" on 30, where Homer says "doh" on 22.

Those evil masterminds! Who would suspect them of stealing from the most popular cartoon of all time that comes on right before them on the same channel? Diabolical!

They were mostly pretty common scticks...

I highly doubt the simpsons did them before acts like Laurel & Hardy, The Marx Brothers, Hitler, and the old Warner Bro's cartoons.


Besides, Family guy is edgier and funnier than the Simpsons.

Ditto for Southpark

The Homer eating chips, Peter eating popcorn bit was something I remember seeing happen on Abbott & Costello many years ago. Hoo Hoo.

Both shows are funny. I like the Simpsons more, but I don't think there were all that many blatant ripoffs in those 2 videos. The cardboard box gag was pretty much the exact same joke, though. Maybe Carlos Mencia helped write that episode.
