Mezco Toyz is as happy as a Family Guy!
Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising has awarded, toy and action figure manufacturer, Mezco Toyz the Family Guy license…so alas, dear citizens, Stewie Griffin’s plans for world domination shall continue, and it shall begin with Mezco Toyz.
The first series of America’s most outrageous animated family is planned for fall 2004. The six-figure assortment includes Peter, his wife Lois, eldest son Chris, martini-swilling dog Brian and two versions of the maniacal baby Stewie. Each figure comes with hilarious accessories.
The Family Guy is the hilarious, offbeat animated series that chronicles the daily mishaps of the Griffin family. The show revolves around the life of the Griffin household. Peter, the man of the house, is a loving father of three children and husband to Lois. Lois is the only member of the family to provide some form of reason to her family. Between Stewie's devilish schemes to sabotage his family members, Chris's apparent lack of any common sense, and their talking dog Brian who amazingly is brighter than them all, Family Guy provides for entertainment on end.
The series originally aired on the Fox network in 1999. It has since found a loyal audience on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. New episodes of the show are currently in production. A DVD set of the show’s first 28 episodes released in April 2003, was the year’s top-selling television DVD and the No. 4. television DVD title ever! A second set, of 22 episodes, is selling at record-breaking numbers as well. Stewie, along with fellow Griffin’s, Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris and gin-swilling family pooch Brian, is scheduled to hit the tube again in 2005—but exactly where channel surfers will spot the decidedly dysfunctional clan is still up in the air.
