Family Guy Recreates Cosby Show Intro 'Knowing What We Know Now'

“Bill Cosby” has made a number of appearances during Family Guy‘s 14-season run, but his big moment in Sunday’s episode was easily his most twisted yet.

As the Griffins waited for Peter’s estranged sister (voiced by Saturday Night Live‘s Kate McKinnon) to arrive for Thanksgiving dinner, they treated themselves to a little television — specifically, the intro to The Cosby Show “knowing what we know now.”

I won’t give away what happens next, but let’s just say it’s not not related to the sexual assault allegations brought against Cosby in recent years. (Dozens of women have come forward with similar accusations of drugging and misconduct.)

Hit PLAY on Family Guy‘s Cosby bit above, then drop a comment with your thoughts below. Are you glad the Fox comedy targeted the TV icon? Or was this a bit much?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    What’s “too much” for Family Guy? What’s “too much” for comedy? I didn’t exactly laugh out loud at the clip, but I am a firm believer that comedy should be an equal opportunity offender.

  2. Ralph says:

    Count your “blessings”. With Family Guy it could have been MUCH worse.

  3. Scott21 says:

    This season is so boring… I couldn’t even finish the last two episodes

  4. David4 says:

    It wasn’t funny at all, but I don’t think it’s supposed to be. It’s more of a satire moment, and for that it sadly worked perfectly.

  5. Donovan Figgs says:

    Meh. I expected a little bit more from FG. This is pretty tame considering how much we know about Cosby at this point. They should have pushed a little bit harder.

  6. Ann Cadman says:

    Very timely! The poor peacock!

  7. ChicagoDan says:

    It was tame, but effective.

  8. J says:

    Meh. I’m all for Cosby getting what he deserves comedically, but that wasn’t even remotely funny for taking a jab at him.

  9. Latisha says:

    I think this is wrong because the man is innocent until PROVEN guilty. So we don’t know anything for certain now. There is the not so “remote” possibility that these women were “groupies” or willing participants in the drug use as well as the sexual ‘misconduct’ with a successful star in which case Bill Cosby was doing what many red blooded male entertainers would do and acquiesced with the women’s pursuits.

    • Alpha says:

      Yes because he’s right and the 50+ women accusing him were just groupies.

    • Brandy Betts says:

      Actually, we know quite a bit certain for now.

      It has now been proven (mostly by his own admission) that Cosby has lied to every single person in his life: his wife, his children, children he made “don’t do drugs” albums for, his fans, and the public. He lied to his wife (and by extension his children) about having multiple affairs, he told kids not to do drugs when he was buying them from corrupted doctors and giving them to young women for the purposes of having sex (his words), he wrote two tabloid articles about Andrea Constand claiming she extorted him when in fact HE had bribed HER with money and college funds to keep her silent. He also claimed in the press that these women’s stories were “unsubstantiated and fantastical” and “have escalated far past the point of absurdity”, when all along they were at LEAST telling the truth about him possessing drugs and using them to get sex with women.

      Thanks to the unsealing of the deposition files from Andrea Constand’s case, Cosby has been exposed as a total and utter liar. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the 57 women accusing him have stellar reputations in their families, communities, and careers.

      When you really do the research and put ALL the data together, you learn very quickly that this is no “groupie” situation. These women were NOT willing participants. Bill Cosby is a psychopath, a somnophiliac, and serial predator and he was protected by his power, popularity, and what I call his “posse” (his wife, lawyers, agents, etc.). Yes, it really *is* that simple, and those of us who know these women have known it all along. It’s time to open your ears and listen.

      • You said it all. Whether or not all of the cases legally constitute sexual assault or rape, he is at best a liar, a drug offender, and the farthest person away from giving others advice as to how to be a good husbands and proper citizens, and role models.

    This is America and we are all innocent until proven guilty…oh, I guess not in the case of Bill Cosby. One thing we know is our society is so twisted that we like to build celebrities up then rip them apart. No one knows if he did it or not except God. The court system is the only justice on Earth that can convict him. It is not up to us. As far as Family Guy, they missed their mark big time. It was not funny or even good satire. The Halloween costume of Cosby was funnier. Good comedy is when u laugh at something because u can’t resist even tho u know it was in bad taste. This was simply just in bad taste. Family Guy was obviously canceled one time before…for good reason

    • KCG says:

      I’m pretty sure the women he (allegedly) raped know whether he did it. Statute of limitations means that these victims don’t get the chance to prove him guilty so are we supposed to shrug our shoulders and let him continue to ridicule these women for speaking out? He’s disgusting and deserves every minute of this (very tame) public persecution because that’s the only punishment he’ll get.

    • laurasecord says:

      He did the crime, though not proven in court, that man is far from innocent. Give up on the innocent until proven guilty. He can wave the statute of limitations on all of these women and let it go to court.

    The world knows what Cosby did Family guy is using humor to remind us . I wonder what a Fat Albert sketch from them would be like?

  13. D.Sheridan says:

    It rather seems to me that Mr. JELLO is not so different than mr Sub-way both used there positions of trust to prey on others this Family Guy outing was rather tame compared to what this show in the past would have done with this !
