'Family Guy' scoop: 'History of the World' trailer

The history of the entire world as told by Family Guy in 22 minutes?

Yes, please. That will do nicely.

There’s a preview clip for the special below. There are two ways to see the whole thing: 1) Buy the upcoming ninth season DVD, which has the full “History of the World” special on it, or 2) Attend one of 10 Family Guy midnight screenings being held around the country to celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary. (Well, Family Guy has been around since 1999, but getting briefly canceled tends to muck with your TV season vs. actual-years-of-existence dates matching up.) The “Something, Something, Something Anniversary” screenings include the Sept. 25 season premiere where the Griffin family wins the Lotto, the popular episode “Road to the Multiverse,” and the “History of the World” special — go here for screening dates. Here’s the trailer*, which includes, among many, many other things, a John Woo Jesus:

UPDATE: You know how sometimes your DVR tapes a new episode, and you’re all excited, then you sit down to watch and then you realize it’s clip show? Sharp-eyed readers point out this material looks familiar. They’re right. History of the World was assembled from previous episodes. We didn’t know. Your sarcastic slow claps accepted.

* Actually, this is the first minute or so of the special, but it looks-feels like a trailer.

    Typical Family Guy…they’ll make you go through hoops to see content like this and then only actually air 17-18 new episodes per season.

  • Daniel

    This trailer is composed entirely of old Family Guy clips, including the John Woo Jesus, which is from the episode North by North Quahog. I doubt any of this will be in the actual episode.

  • EL

    Spoiler: it won’t be funny.

    There. Saved everyone time and money.

    • Eric

      Yeah, it probably will be.

    • Brian

      Except for the parts where it is.

  • john

  • Lolita

    That was just a bunch of old family guy episode clips, and had nothing from the actual new episode. So what was the point?

  • Kevin

    The trailer is just full of old Family Guy clips…

  • Temp

    Will they be using it as the Finale, as they did for the Star Wars Specials that were released on DVD early then aired at the end of season?

  • Shea

    i thought that they already did this episode? wasn’t it the one where they were stuck in the panic room and peter told the history of the griffin family?

  • João Paulo

    Family = Fun

  • Scott

    Wow, are you serious? These are old clips, some from the episode Shea mentions and other episodes shoddily put together with cheesy intertitles. Just one of the millions of these things on Youtube. Good work, EW. (And Huffington Post even picked this up. Shame.)

  • Mike

    The trailer is still hilarious… who cares if they are old clips??
