The jokes can get pretty random on Family Guy (see: any episode), but this week there will be some high-powered star wattage powering one such gag: Johnny Depp. The film star makes his debut on the animated comedy by voicing one of his most memorable and sharpest characters from the big screen, Edward Scissorhands.
In the episode, which airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fox, Lois goes through a mid-life crisis and starts acting like someone half her age. As Chris, Meg, Stewie, and Brian wonder what’s wrong with her, Depp appears in a cutaway gag playing the titular character from Edward Scissorhands… as a night nurse. (If you guessed that one, you’re lying.) What will happen when Depp reprises this iconic role for nearly 20 seconds? Press play and hold your babies tight.
