It is the 19th episode of Family Guy to be aired. The title spoofs the popular paraphrase of Andy Warhol 's famous quote about everyone getting 15 minutes of fame. Peter is supposedly following Bob's instructions and painting a landscape scene, but it is revealed he has painted the Keaton family from NBC 's Family Ties in a parody of that show's opening titles.

Hard as it may seem, it's been two decades since Fox first brought the animated world of Quahog, Rhode Island into our homes. We met Peter Griffin, the bumbling father, Lois, his pretty wife, Meg, their oft-ridiculed daughter, Chris, their awkward teenage son, Stewie, their diabolical infant son intent on ruling the world, and Brian, their anthropomorphic dog. With its heady mix of high-and low-brow comedy, cutaway gags and crass language, the show was an instant lightning rod for controversy.
A show like Family Guywith its parade of cutaway gags and bizarre '80s references, wasn't supposed to last. And at first, it didn't; it debuted in to modest ratings, and Fox cancelled it after the third season. But the subsequent DVD sales did so well that Fox brought the show back from the dead.

The second season of the animated comedy series Family Guy aired on Fox from September 23, to August 1,and consisted of 21 episodes. The series follows the dysfunctional Griffin family —father Petermother Loisdaughter Megson Chrisbaby Stewie and their anthropomorphic dog Brianall of whom reside in their hometown of Quahog. The executive producers for the second production season were David Zuckerman and MacFarlane; the aired season also contained eight episodes which were holdovers from season one.
If there's one thing Family Guy knows better than what it feels like to be cancelled by Fox, it's movies. From their reverential full-length Star Wars treatments to the blink-and-you'll-miss-'em cutaways, the show is littered with so many movie references that they're impossible to count. With a not-necessarily-respectful nod to everything from The Sound of Music to Debbie Does DallasRhode Island's edgiest family rarely take the moral high ground and occasionally walk the thinnest of lines between questionable and downright obscene.
All shows are wide-screen now, so you can see the stuff you couldn't before. We now return to The Brady Bunch. See, look.

The scene where Peter throws a penny from the roof and it splits the policeman in half, revealing a seemingly embarrassed naked midget inside, is very much reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's animation shorts from Monty Python's Flying Circus. The idea itself of a person revealed to be a midget or two midgets in a "big people suit" is a recurring gag in several episodes.
