Matt Stone and Trey Parker hate Family Guy

What's the deal with the South Park making fun of Family Guy?  I know this isn't a new topic, but I only recently saw the episode where they rip on McFarlane's constant gag setups.  Did Family Guy make fun of South Park first?  I like both the shows myself.  I think the South Park Guys are far more clever, but I'll take a good Family Guy gag any time as well.

 

Just wondering if there was a back story there.  Also, was there ever a response to it?

South Park was exactly right, though. Family Guy has fallen into a very unfunny routine.

from what i remember there wasn't really a backstory.

 

South Park just tackled another "big issue" like shows that rely on reference humor becoming super famous(maybe more so than a certain cartoon cable show?)

Or maybe Family Guy has gotten totally lame and shitty and South Park is riding high.

Face it. South Park is still making good material, Family Guy is sucking shit. There are no two ways about it.

ok i totally agree, because South Park is dam good. the only downfall is it's political agenda sometimes.

The new episode that Brian has a son was like way boring, but not even funny. It didn't start off right. The episodes are not really getting that funny anymore. South Park is a great show that I like, it always been an awesome show. Matt Stone and Trey Parker like the show: Xavier: Renegade Angel.

Even though South Park was making some fun at family guy, those episodes actually had an overall positive message about FG.  Sure, it's plot is written by manatees, but it's good ol' funny random humor and doesn't get all preachy (this I'm paraphrasing directly from that SP episode).  And to all those "Family Guy ** rabble :robotmad: ** recently," etc., posts: stfu.  Both shows have their hits and misses.  As for a backstory, I doubt there is one.  Trey and Matt just noticed something to make fun about in the show and made a couple of episodes out of it.

I like South Park, I hate Family Guy, and I have mixed feelings about Xavier (i think it's funny, but it's pretty whack. i.e., where the fuuuuuudge did Xavier come from? Why does he have fur, a beak, backwards legs, six n!pples, and an eye where his ** rabble :robotmad: ** should be?)

I found some quotes on the issue.  As mentioned above by geglash, the South Park episode did make fun or their own humor as well.  This link has some interesting info on censors, Simpsons, and South Park "hatin" on the Family Guy.

Family Guy will start up at any random point and it usually takes half of the episode to find a plot direction

South Park knows where it is going from the start, builds up to funny stuff, and carries the momentum to the very end

 

Family Guy has no plot-relevant humor. Half the series is unrelated pop culture references

South Park uses it's plot for humor value and political satire

 

South Park is incredibly controversial and will touch upon any subject as long as they can make a relative and substantial point.

Family Guy will be as racist, blasphemous, and sexist as it wants and it doesn't care if it has to sacrifice comedy to do so.

 

South Park > Family Guy

Family Guy has gone from funny to lazy writing..

I love both shows too, but I'm not quite ready to give up on Family Guy.

  1. South Park will make fun of anyone and anything.
  2. The episode where they spoofed Family Guy had self-deprecating jokes in it ("At least it not all up in your assy preachy")

Personally I prefer Family Guy to South Park though I do like south park and I dont think that episode really meant anything. Just like every other episode of south park it just made to entertain nothing more.

             No backstory as I can recall. Anyway on their worse day South Park can produce a beeter episode than Family Guy.

             It's sad too because I use to be a fan of Family Guy.

 

              Also South Park has won like what two emmys now ...has Family Guy won one?

I really like both shows and find them to be very entertaining. My favorite SouthPark episode was the "Imagination Land" in which the terrorists shoot the blue carebare in the head lol

I found that that episode just reeked of jealousy. FG has gotten more popular since it's return. The boys at SP must be getting antsy.

Even though I like South Park, The Simpsons, Futurama. I like Family Guy overall. It has random and hilarious comedy, and that's why I love it. I don't care if you hate it. It won't change my mind.
