Family Guy to Spin-Off Cleveland Brown

14 Comments

Family Guy is an infectious show, one of those 10-jokes a clip shows that just keeps firing gag after gag on you, regardless if they make any sense at all. Fans of the show knows that the best parts are those totally non sequitur moments that usually begins with the line, “You remember the time…” BAM! One joke down, 9 to go. And now it looks like Family Guy may be getting a spin-off that will focus on Cleveland Brown.

Fox and 20th Century Fox TV are developing a spinoff from its hit animated series centered on Peter Griffin’s bathtub-accident-prone neighbor, sources said.

The project, tentatively titled “Cleveland,” is being written by “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, Mike Henry — who voices Cleveland and serves as writer-producer on the series — and “The Simpsons” alum Rich Appel, executive producer/showrunner on MacFarlane’s other animated comedy for Fox, “American Dad.”

Cleveland, who plays off black stereotypes, is the most levelheaded among Griffin’s trio of friends.

Um, okay, I’ve probably seen every episode of the show, like, 10 times or so, and I don’t recall Cleveland being “bathtub-accident-prone”. When did he have an accident in the tub? The most notable trait of Cleveland is his totally unexcitable personality. The Hollywood Reporter and I must be watching two completely different shows…

    There’s an episode where half of Cleveland’s house is ripped apart, while Cleveland is taking a bath. And the bathtub falls out of the house and smashes on his front lawn, leaving him bare naked to say his one liner. I forgot which episode it was but it was a very memorable scene.

    It’s the episode where Mayor West sends all the police away to look for a fictional character, leaving Quahog without a police force. And then Peter gets a giraffe, which then ends up walking into Cleveland’s house, where he’s taking a bath.

    At least that’s the one I’ve seen. Is there more than one?

    Think it’s happened twice. I remember one where Peter shoots a missile from his tank at Cleveland’s house.
    “I’ve gotta stop taking my baths during Peter’s shennanigans.”
