Stewie And Brian From Family Guy Have Created A Podcast With A COVID-19 PSA

With nothing else to do while stuck in quarantine, the Family Guy characters have done "the easiest thing in the world" and started a podcast.


Though Family Guy is currently on a break that's unrelated to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis, you can bet the show would have something to say about our current state of affairs. In lieu of new episodes, show co-creator Seth MacFarlane has released an Instagram video featuring Stewie and Brian discussing coronavirus on their new "podcast".

The two discuss the coronavirus messaging that has become pretty standard by now, though this time with Family Guy's classic sense of humor. They urge listeners to wash their hands, keep 6 feet of distance between people, stay at home, and wear masks--though ideally unlike Brian's, your mask should cover your nose and mouth.

The short segment isn't animated, but it features MacFarlane voicing Brian and Stewie, along with cameos from his other characters Peter and Quagmire.

The Family Guy characters aren't the first to deliver coronavirus-related PSAs, with the cast of Watchmen releasing a video titled "Washmen", appearing in character to implore fans to wash their hands. While the videos aren't necessarily all that informative compared to official messaging from the CDC or WHO, they're still a welcome source of entertainment in these times.

Family Guy Season 18 will return with new episodes on April 19, after a break of just over a month.
