I recently watched a few episodes of the show Family Guy at the recommendation of several television commercials. You can imagine my skull-crushing shock when I came upon the following image in the episode titled, “A Picture is Worth 1,000 Bucks”:
That’s right, it’s Walt Disney — the man, they legend, the genius, the copyright holder — himself, depicted drawing a young, saucy-looking Minnie Mouse! Now that is just not right (and if you watch the episode, which you shouldn’t, it gets even not righter — or so I’ve heard, in that I was not able to finish the episode, what with a table lamp having been thrown through the television screen in a moment of horrified desire to remove the offending image from my field of vision).
I certainly hope that this is an isolated incident in the annals of Famiy Guy copyright blasphemy. (If not, let me know in the comments and I will cry bitter tears of sorrow before posting what I can find of the offending images.)
