The Ultimate Doom featured in Family Guy


Just watched tonight's episode of Family Guy, and a sequence from The Ultimate Doom was featured (screenshot featured is not from Family Guy).

The show opened with a Bin Laden spoof, where Stewie ultimately took him on in a Yoda/Count Dooku style battle from Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. After winning Stewie feel down a cliff onto his tricycle and a The Naked Gun title spoof started, where you followed in a first person mode as Stewie drove threw all these crazy places.

One of these places happened to be an early part from The Ultimate Doom, where Stewie drove up a staircase and collided with an Imp.

The episode also featured Cobra Commander, and Homer Simpson.

Speaking of The Simpsons, I caught their latest Treehouse of Horrors, and man did that suck. Seriously, it was so stupid, why is that show still on the air? Awful. Just awful.

Update: In the comments to this post, anonymous posted a low res video link to the title sequence of this Family Guy episode. The opening teaser with Bin Laden and the Attack of the Clones battle spoof is missing, but The Naked Gun spoof including The Ultimate Doom and The Simpsons is there. Check it out here.

Actually, that entire squence in the beginning of Family Guy was a spoof on the first Naked Gun. The music should have been a huge tipoff

Above is a quote from my post, where I though I made that clear. However you are correct, the entire intro is a spoof on Naked Gun, with an Attack of the Clones battle thrown in, as well as a Simpsons title spoof.

Actually, that was the Battle of Hoth, from Empire. Sorry to be so nerdly.

The Attack of the Clones spoof battle was when Stewie was fighting Bin Laden.

He was jumping around in the exact same retarded way that Yoda was.

Honestly, I don't find The Simpsons to be a good show anymore.

I was chatting with a friend a few days ago, and we agree that The Simpsons reached it's peak around 1997 to '98, then slowly began to decline into the drivel it is now.

Ah, Scorpio. Best, episode ever, and all those other great classics.

Actually it was the Police Squad TV show that they were showing homage too.
