The Fox comedy has brought back the Family Guy's popular talking dog in yesterday's special episode. ”The Christmas Guy” is the title of the episode in which Brian the dog comes back to life. This Christmas-themed episode states, “Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.”
Shortly after the broadcast of this Christmas special episode, Family Guy's creator Seth MacFarlane tweeted, "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you? Jesus, we'd have to be fucking high."
The enthusiastic crowd that loves to watch Family Guy on television has erupted in protest after Brian's death three weeks ago. The tragic death of Brian Griffin on November 24th, a dog possessing the powers of speech and writing, is the cause of the hubbub. But Brian's will be happy now as their beloved dog is back in the animated show.
The cute white canine was a regular part of the family and its death in a car accident came as somewhat of a shock for the show’s aficionados. And a new pet was also added to the show as a substitute in place of Brian. Seth McFarlane was the voice behind the mutt Brian. The final scene before the dog disappeared from the cartoon showed him being hit by a fast car. Before expiring in the hospital Brian says the memorable words: You’ve given me a wonder life. I love you all.” Brian's fans also loved his character. That is why,Brian the dog came back to life in the Family Guy cartoon show.
Since the show began in 1999, Brian Griffin had been a fundamental part of it. He was often shown alongside a baby character named Stewie. The dog was often at loggerheads with the rest of the family. The creators of the series were surprised at the audience’s reaction at the death of a dog. They said that it would have been more tragic had a kid in Family Guy died instead of a dog.
"As much as we love Brian, and as much as everyone loves their pets, we felt it would be more traumatic to lose one of the kids, rather than the family pet," Family Guy's executive producer Steve Callaghan said at that time.
