Family Guy started as a cartoon called “Larry & Steve”. It was a lot different back then.

You’ll notice that the two titular characters, Larry and his dog Steve, sound just like Peter Griffin and Brian. Of course, that’s because the creator of both cartoons, Seth McFarlane, is also the voice actor for all four of these characters. This animated short premiered on Cartoon Network back in 1997, but it was actually based on a project called The Life of Larry, which was actually McFarlane’s thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design. After seeing this short film, executives at Fox contracted him to make Family Guy.
