I love the fact that Bender was named after the character in The Breakfast Club.

I am a huge Simpsons and Futurama fan but I am still trying to get into Family Guy.

Favourite Homer quote:

The difficulty is not so great to die for a friend, as to find a friend worth dying for


Whoops wrong Homer!

I don't suppose South Park counts as a prime time cartoon...but it is hilarious

My sister in law says watching South Park makes her feel 'dirty'.

Southpark certainly counts.

I liked it when homer said:
"I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman."

The episode when Homer gets the church as compensation for falling into a ditch is hilarious. I remember Ned Flanders is looking at the Homer led goings on in the church through binoculars and he points out that they've broken nine of the ten commandments and then he looks horrified and says 'there goes number ten'.

Another great Homer quote about religion:

Homer: Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girls sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such.

Ya, Carl and Lenny broke the last commandment by coveting chili-fries.

I've always loved cartoons. Family Guy is definitely one of my all-time favorites. Simpsons are great, but I haven't watched them for a few years now. I'm not a huge fan of the new style of cartoons now though, making them look more CGI'ish (for lack of a better adjective). Part of the genius of South Park was that it started as paper cut-outs and that helped to create the show's personality. CGI just seems so sterile to me, even though I have enjoyed several of the new Disney movies, they are still missing something.

My favorite Family Guy moment was when the started to censor everything and they debated whether Peter's chin should have a black box over it because it looked like a pair of balls.

DTH - My Neighbor Totoro was great - have you seen any of Hayao Miyazaki's other films like Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke?

Is this the thread for religiously oriented Simpson quotes? Because I got one,

Marge: Homer, you don't have to pray outloud.
Homer: But he's way the hell up there!
"Oook." - The Librarian

For some reason the discussion over in Describe Your Home Town 2.0 about Buckfast wine reminded me of this Family Guy clip.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

I love the fact that the fights between Peter and the giant chicken are better choreographed than some Hollywood action movies.

Are you kidding? I own most of them. Easily one of the best, most unacknowledged directors of this time.
