Child services investigates and soon finds the Griffin home unsuitable for a baby, and take Stewie to a foster home. The residents of Spooner Street declare peace, and decide to rescue Stewie. I thought this was a superb episode. Not my favorite episode to watch, but it was pretty enjoyable for most of the part. Although there were no characters that annoyed me in this episode, the boring scenes is what made my lower. Some of the parts in this episode could have added more funny moments. I think both of the plots are funny. It was funny that Griffins won the contest thing because of that episode from a show. Meg taking Stewie to the pancake restaurant was very funny and Stewie got some funny lines as well. I thought it was funny when Rod Serling appeared and then the Spooner Street people chase him and then later Brian beat him up with a shovel. The very last part for the episode was hilarious. Overall, a superb episode, but a few parts could have been better. 9/10moreless

    What I liked- Pancakes. , the traps everyone used, when everyone was saying each other's names at the store, chris in the lobster trap, Meg's laugh when she says "crack addicted baby"



    But a perfect episode, reccomended to anyone

    8.0
    When Peter and the guys win a trophy for the best float at a parade, they can't decide who gets to keep it, so they put it in the middle of the street on top of the float, but someone stole it, and they all become enemies. Meanwhile, Meg wants to get a new handbag, and gets a job at A Pancake diner, by pretending that Stewie is her crack addicted baby.



    Child services comes and takes Stewie after they hear the situation that meg made up, and all the neighbors of Spooner Street team up to get him back.



    This wasn't a very funny episode, but it had a great plot, and Stewie was very funny like always.moreless
  • Hilarious, like every other classic family guy

    In this episode, Peter and his friends enter the town float, and after winning first prize, the trophy disappears and the neighbors turn against one another. In another plot, Meg gains sympathy tips at her job at the Pancake House, by saying that Stewie is her crack addicted baby. This favorite of mine is hilarious on many levels, like Stweie turning the kids of different cultures against one another, the child services lady buying up all of Meg's story, and thinking that "Pancakes" was street for "Crack" only helped make this episode awesome-r.Overall, this is an excellent episode that I recommend. 10/10 A+moreless
  • A great show, but...

    4.7
    This episode really applied on two levels to me, On one level it was crap on the other level it was good, I think this ep could really have not been made, I mean you know when a series just gets too sure of themselves and then lose it and then make a lousy episode like this, I was having trouble watching this the other day, infact it probaply made me laugh as much as a average King of the Hill, still one explanation could be that it was produced as the thirteenth one and to that effect still season one days, sorry for this FG-two thumbs down. (the good level was the first time I watched it)moreless
