Watch: ‘Family Guy’ Pays Its Respects to Carrie Fisher


Family Guy has paid tribute to Carrie Fisher, who had a role voicing Peter’s former boss Angela in Fox’s animated comedy series.

“She may be gone, but her voice will live on in DVD and Hulu Plus and tiny droid-projected messages,” lead character Peter Griffin, voiced by series creator Seth MacFarlane, says at Angela’s funeral. “I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess.”

It’s a sweet little scene that manages to still include the show’s style of random humour, as Peter injects classic TV show themes (including Friends and Cheers) and ultimately realises he’s at the wrong funeral. Watch the clip below.

Family Guy‘s 18th (!) season arrived on Australian DVD on November 21, 2019.
