Our buddy Mitchell Hallock, friend of the Indy Cast and poster at TheRaider.net, sent over the following report:
"Though Stewie and the gang have acted out several great scenes from the Indiana Jones saga on their show in the past, they have never done an entire episode focusing on the adventures of the fedora wearing archaeologist. But maybe that will soon change...
Speaking with Craveonline.com, Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, expressed interest in doing an episode of the popular animated comedy series solely on Indy, similar to what he's done with George Lucas' other creation Star Wars.
Crave Online: Is there another movie that you love enough to want to build a whole episode around?
Seth MacFarlane: "We’d love to do the Indiana Jones series, at least the first three."
Crave Online: What different Family Guy characters would you cast as Indy, Marion, etc?
Seth MacFarlane: "I guess Peter would be Indy. Lois would be Marion. And Stewie would be Short Round. No, Stewie might be, what’s his name? The German guy. The guys who burns his hand. I don’t remember his name. [Major Toht]."
The hour-long Family Guy: Star Wars show -- aka Blue Harvest -- was hysterical, and it showed that the folks behind it were true fans and inserted subtle in-jokes that brought smiles to the legion of Star Wars fans who watched. Now, Star Wars fans can look forward to Seth MacFarlane's next trip to a galaxy far, far away when the debut their version of The Empire Strikes Back next fall.
Here is hoping they do a better (and more respectful) job with Indiana Jones than his last animated TV appearance on the season's premiere episode of South Park. OUCH!"
