Family Guy has done what very few animations do and kill off a major character.
The family pet Brian was killed off being hit by a car in a shocking episode that aired in the US overnight.
The character, who had been in the show since the pilot, uttered “You’ve given me a wonderful life, I love you all,” as he closed his eyes for the very last time.
In the episode titled Life of Brian, the Griffin family were quick to find a replacement pooch called Vinnie who is voiced by Tony Sirico, the actor that played Paulie ‘Walnuts’ Gautieri inThe Sopranos.
The episode is excepted to screen on 7MATE
