For Family Guy fans, there are no freakin' sweeter words than "Never Before Seen." Created as a three-episode story arc, this DVD premiere is a triumphant homecoming for the Griffins. Family Guy's resurrection is a television miracle, and its creators have rewarded the faithful by picking up right where they left off, offending any and all sensibilities (recasting Jesus as comic magician Art Metrano), dissing the celebrity disenfranchised (Ellen Cleghorne references, anyone?), and generally taking potshots at anyone on their enemies list (Stewie breaks the neck of a reporter for Entertainment Weekly, the magazine that once called Family Guy "the Awful Show They Just Keep Putting on the Air"). The Untold Story! is a star vehicle for Family Guy 's breakout character, in which the mega maniacal and matricidal infant has a Grinch-like change of heart after a near-death experience (and a disturbing encounter with Steve Allen in Hell) and, more life-altering, discovers a football-pated man who could be his father (the truth is more shocking!). As go the gags, so goes Family Guy, and there are enough good ones here to compensate for the many misfires. The Miller-esque (as in Dennis) penchant for channeling arcane pop culture can grow tiresome. But for those who do remember the words to the Who's the Boss theme song, know (or still care) who Steve Bartman is, and are always up for "a sexy party," this will be the greatest story ever untold. --Donald Liebenson

2.0 out of 5 stars Blast you, vile woman! Oct. 2 2005
Format:DVD
"Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" is really just three episodes combined to make one feature. There are things here that work & are really funny, but there are other things that fall short & miss the mark. As great as "Family Guy" is, this movie just doesn't live up to the show's legacy.
The essence of the story is Stewie meets a man whom he believes is his real father, only to discover the man is him thirty years later. Finding out that his future life is not at all what he hoped for, he attempts to repair the past (a la "Terminator 2" & "Back To The Future", just a lot less inspired). Peter & Lois try to introduce Chris & Meg to dating. Brian is tacked on to the "A" story, but doesn't play an integeral part in the plot, (which is a shame because the concept of a talking, sarcastic, alcoholic dog is hilarious). Of course, series regulars (Cleveland, greased-up deaf guy, Mayor West, etc...) tag along.
Unlike "South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut"; the coarse language is kept to a bare minimum, but perhaps that can be a positive thing. Also unlike "South Park", there's nothing truly new or exciting in "Stewie Griffin" that fans probably expected from a "Family Guy" movie.
The biggest issue I have with this DVD is it's price. This single disc, (with few bonus features), costs $30 or more. A full season of "Family Guy" (with funny, interesting stories) can be purchased for less than $50. Maybe this "Family Guy" movie should have remained untold.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great... Oct. 10 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Now I have been watching this show ever since it's debut after the super bowl, and that night it made me laugh my (a) off, for 30 minutes straight, even through commercials...Now this definitely did not do that, it was a great piece of work, and far better then a lot of others shows out there, even live action...but this didn't hit the mark, I found the story kind of dragged and that they "borrowed" a lot from 40 year old virgin.
The price of this DVD is a bit much, I remember buying the two volumes of FG for about $30 each, and this is essentially a lot less for about the same price, so if you could pick this up for around $16-17 then your set.
As for special features, there really are not any, unless you count the premiere and the after party which could have easily been bullets on the back of the box, and been separate special features instead of attached to the movie, but otherwise there is nothing. A few commercials (FG & American Dad) and an animatic compassion of two scenes which doesn't really add anything tangible to the set, and the audio commentary which I have not yet listened to, so perhaps its worth the set alone.
Family guy is one amazing show, which I'm glad is back, I was so excited for this release, but found it mediocre at best, but don't get me wrong, its funny, and any FG fan should pick it up, unless your willing to wait for the edited episodes that will be coming in the next season, and you really didn't miss much swearing either if that's the road your going to take.
As for the audio and video of the show, expect what is similar to the television broadcasts, although the audio on mine seemed a bit sloppy, but otherwise there was a good transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius Dec 20 2005
Format:DVD
Family Guy is pure genious. You will laugh, laugh and laugh again. Although the movie isn't as great as the episodes, it's still great. The reson why the movie isn't as good as the episodes is because the movie has to follow a story line, and there are much minutes that go to the story line instead of going to jokes. There is no real story line in the episodes, and that is ok because it can stand togheter for 23 minutes. But the movie had to stand togheter for about 90 minutes, and that's why it isn't as funny. This movie is a great buy, but if you have only 30$ to buy family guy stuff, I would suggest you go with Family Guy Season 4 (Volume Three) for even more great laughs.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
movies that being animated, you would think that it is just for kids and is "wholesome." You would be very wrong! Stewie lets it all hang out, proverbially speaking, of course. This movie is chalk full of hilarious one liners from all of the characters.
