    The Honeymooners has been a show that has inspired many, many shows over the years...The character Peter Griffin from Family Guy was infact based on Ralph and not Homer Simpson....not only that but in season 4 Family Guy has refferenced The Honeymooners atleast 3 times. This is just more evidence of the impact this show had on television.

    Not to mention the most obvious Ralph-inspired dad, Fred Flintstone.

    While I enjoy Family Guy, there are similarities between Peter Griffin and Ralph, it's just not the same. Flintstone is the closest. and I agree with thepeachycleangirl above. Please don't mention the two together.

    Um...the character of Peter Griffin was not based on Ralph Kramden. Certainly Seth MacFarlane is a big JACKIE GLEASON fan, and THAT may have something to do with some of the similarities between Peter and many of Jackie's various comedy routines. The show Family Guy was more likely inspired by shows like Wait Til Your Father Gets Home.
