Press Kits Unwrapped: The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, and The War at Home

ingredientsFOX's animation-heavy Sunday lineup kicks off this Sunday starting with The Simpsons at 8, American Dad at 8:30, Family Guy at 9, and The War at Home at 9:30. That doesn't matter though, because we're not going to talk about those shows right now. Instead, let's dive into the nifty press pack FOX sent out to promote their returning Sunday shows. After the jump you'll see pictures of me enjoying all the cool free stuff. Please be aware that I suffer from a rare skin condition, and I'm only twenty-two inches tall. Okay, let's tear into this kit:

The contents came in this clever "potato chip" bag, complete with a War at Home chip clip. The clip seems to be the only item exclusively advertising The War at Home. It was used to keep the bag sealed, but I'm guessing you're supposed to attach it to your privates to remind yourself how painful it is to watch that program.

Also inside the bag was a pair of Family Guy boxer shorts with the words "Freakin' sweet!" and various images of Peter in celebratory poses, as if he wouldn't want to be anywhere else but on your ass. And who can blame him? A Simpsons shirt was also included.

This picture shows me opening the bag for the first time. You can tell I'm really excited to find out what's inside.

After eating the Pringles, I was still hungry, so I ate the American Dad saltine crackers, which I was later told were actually coasters. I'm also wearing the Simpsons T-shirt, which is kind of big on me.

All this real and fake food just made me want to learn more about these shows, but since I suffer from an unusual form of illiteracy in which I can write but not read, my tutor, a man named Gregory Anderson who looks and talks exactly like Yoda, read the episode synopses and character bios to me.

Afterward, Gregory and I played "spaceman" using the bubblewrap that came with the press kit. I started seeing white spots flashing in front of my eyes, which Gregory said meant I was going through a time warp. He was right, because when I came to he was gone and it was five hours later.

All of these programs will kick off this Sunday, September 10, starting at 8 pm. Please enjoy them responsibly.

Note: Special thanks to Keith for taking some of the item pictures.

Reminds me of one of my favorite Stewie quotes: "You know I might asphyxiate myself just to teach you a lesson. Here I go. Just like that boy from INXS."

God damn it, and I had the thing right in front of me. It's been corrected, thanks for pointing that out.

Wow. You better see a doctor about that skin condition (I think it's called Muppetitis).
