A recent episode of Fox’s longrunning animated comedy Family Guy featured a sequence that saw Peter and Meg escaping a prison. But instead of the show’s regular animation style, it was imagined as if they escaped the prison in Rare’s beloved 1997 shooter GoldenEye 007.
The menus, camera angles, auto-lock aiming, same-y looking enemies, and UI are all represented mostly faithfully to the classic Nintendo 64 game. With all of the snowy locations, it looks to be inspired by the level “Surface.” Check it out below. The segment originally aired as part of Family Guy Season 17, Episode 7, which was titled “Griffin Winter Games.”
This is not the first time Family Guy has riffed on video games. A Season 16 episode of the show featured a silly segment spoofing the World of Warcraft Leeroy Jenkins meme.
Before that, Family Guy creator’s Seth MacFarlane’s web series, “Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy,” featured a Mario-inspired short that.
