30 Suspiciously Similar TV Shows Accused Of Ripping Off Another Series
Both The Simpsons and Family Guy are centered on a mediocre, dim-witted patriarch whose wife is way out of his league. But the similarities don’t end there. Both have three children (consisting of one boy, one girl, and one quirky baby). Plus, there are Family Guy scenes that seem like an exact replica from The Simpsons, like the flashback “hit me” sequence of Homer and Peter. To be fair, though, Family Guy did have some of the same writers and animators from The Simpsons, and the latter has already covered so much. The two shows also had a cross-over at one point, so it seems like both are on good terms.
