Animal Experimentation?! Family Guy Conspiracy – Family Guy Week! – Cartoon Conspiracy (Ep. 125)

June 21, 2019 By

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has incorporated fully sentient animals into the communities of all his shows, including Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show. But what’s the in-universe explanation for this? Were the sentient animals in Family Guy and other shows once human?

    what if all the animals were just tests and Brian and all the rest were babies or young children when they were swapped and klaus was just a two birds with one stone type of situation where they got to test their processes and get rid of the “threat”

    What if Klaus is the CIA`s attempt to recreate one the other talking animals?

    they're just cartoons. There have been talking animals way before these shows.. This video makes no sense. What about Duck Tales, Sponge Bob, Teenage Ninja Turtles and so on... It's just for entertainment.. I can name over 10 shows where there are talking animals over the years. This is an irrelevant video.

    Funny that klose has a better memory of being a human than Brian, when Klose is a goldfish.funny he doesn't have a memory of a goldfish.

    The giant chicken was made in a lab by doctors Hartman. When Hartman tell piter he say "ok doc were going to need to talk about that later" then it goes back to the main plot. P.s. really great video

    Well, I'm only 13 but based on what I've gathered from the channel "@Phantomstrider (thanks for the sources btw) mine are Road To Rhode Island, & that's all from #familyguy but I CAN say that (thank you PhantomStrider) my favorite American Dad episodes are Tearjerker & the one with The Rapture

    Dr.Hartman is responsible for the giant chicken Peter fights, they made reference to it when Peter needed a kidney transplant.

    I’ve always wondered if the stuff American dad shows is actual stuff the government uses and has and the whole family including Rodger is real but they just did a cartoon version to make it look fictional

    Mabey klaus was the first experiment. If we go with the idea that the government tries to scilence apparent threats, mabey klaus was the first and they just couldnt erase his memories. Mabey Brian came after him and when he was brain switched, his memories were erased.

    That's really ironic that the GOLDFISH is the one with good memory XD
    (Get it? 'cause like... People use the phrase "memory of a goldfish"
    When they are explaining that they have bad memory??)
