Brian was killed by a speeding hit-and-run driver, in "Life of Brian", the FAMILY GUY episode broadcast on Sunday evening, November 24, 2013.
Considering he first appeared in the FAMILY GUY Pilot episode, broadcast directly after the Super Bowl of January, 1999, that would make him just shy of 15 years old – or 105 in “dog years”. Not bad for a hard-drinking, verbose canine!
Amazingly, Brian remained dead at episode’s end – and was actually replaced by “Vinny: The Italian-American Talking Dog”, who certainly looks to be FAMILY GUY’s version of “Poochie”, or better yet, “The Great Gazoo”, in that he may be that fatal step that ultimately kills a long-running animated series!
|If "Sharks" existed in the Stone Age, this would have jumped one!|
Never. He’s really dead, and FAMILY GUY will totally suck without him!
