Family Guy’s popularity in due in large part to their constant envelope pushing, hold nothing back commentary and reenactments so it’s no real surprise that they would take aim at The Cosby Show for kicks.Sunday’s episode featured the Griffin family sitting down to watch the show but the opening credits is what made this scene slightly different from any other nostalgic night spent in front of the television. Bill Cosby, who has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting more than 50 women, portrays Cliff Huxtable per usual but is seen dancing around his passed out female cast mates in Family Guy’s version of the opening. The punchline, delivered by Peter Griffin – “Huh. I was so busy not seeing color, I didn’t see the raping either.”
What are your thoughts on the recreation? Is there anything remotely funny about it?
