Part 7 and 8 in a 6,837 Part Series of Family Guy Musical References


Season: 5

Episode: 9

Episode Title: "Road to Rupert"

Reference: part 7 is the title, "Road to Rupert," which is a reference to the multiple Bob Hope and Bing Crosby (Brian and Stewie) "Road to..." musicals, of which there are at least six.  The part 8 reference is perhaps the grand-daddy musical reference of them all.  Stewie replaces Jerry the Mouse (they wanted Mickey, but Disney wasn't game--suckers!) to join Gene Kelly in the "The King Who Couldn't Dance (The Worry Song)" dance from Anchors Aweigh (1945).  I almost peed my pants with joy when I first saw this (can you pee your pants with joy?  Hmm.)

Here's both side by side:

Words can't describe my love for this movie, and this scene. Spectacularly entertaining. Seth McFarlane, marry me.
