Ok, I realize I may perhaps be a tad late to the party with this one, but eh.. For a person who isn’t in tune to “real time” television, three years isn’t terrible is it? Who am I kidding. I have no excuse and this is why I need an adultier adult in my life to kick my ass and keep me on track as far as references are concerned.
Anywho, for those out there that are like me and can’t keep up on TV programming for shit, this hilarious episode of Family Guy aired back in 2012. The show entitled, “Tom Tucker: The Man and His Dream” is the thirteenth episode in the tenth season where while reporting the Quahog news, Tom Tucker’s co anchor let’s off a bit of trivia about Tucker. Saying in his in early acting days, that he went by the stage name George P. Wilbur – who is indeed the actor that portrays Michael Myers of both Halloween 4 and Halloween 6: The Curse Of Michael Myers. Peter Griffin, who caught the broadcast, states that Halloween 4 is his absolute favorite movie and makes a run to the news station to meet his favorite Myers actor.
Family Guy is notorious for their pop culture references. And quite frankly, it grinds my gears that I somehow missed this one or never heard about it. Oh well. We can’t all be perfect all the time.
Here’s the clip!
