After hanging out with the casts of Modern Family, Glee and Sons Of Anarchy in their holiday cards the last three years (click on the titles to watch them again), 20th Century Fox TV chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman are getting animated this year for a visit with the Griffins from the studio’s toon hit Family Guy, which just celebrated its 200th episode. The man of the hour, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who scored a sleeper movie hit with Ted and is hosting the Oscars, directed Walden and Gary and provided voices for the video, written by the Family Guy writing staff. The entertaining skit is full of inside jokes — about the demise of MacFarlane’s Flintstones reboot, the Modern Family cast renegotiations, the uncertain future of Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show, which has not been renewed beyond this season, and Family Guy‘s own history of cancellations. It even plugs Newman’s family winery. Enjoy!
