Few shows can make me laugh the way Family Guy can. Whether it's a good old Peter v Chicken brawl, the fam using Meg as a punching bag, or the Evil Monkey, that show just gets me. It's been on for 15 seasons but they can still shock me every single episode. So what goes into such a manic show? Here are some behind-the-scenes facts about Family Guy.

1. Seth MacFarlane's favorite scene from the show is Peter trying to get Tom Selleck to eat a spoonful of beans through the TV screen.

He was so nurturing. So patient.

2. Despite the long-standing belief that the term "what the hell" is said in every episode, it's not.

A show from season three didn't put the phrase in. So close.

3. Brian Griffin is voiced by Seth MacFarlane, but William H. Macy tried out for the part.

Which really could have been great.

4. Mayor West – obviously voiced by Adam West – is one of the most requested characters by fans.

The guy knows how to play low-key crazy.
