I didn't see this post until now so I didn't even watch the special.
While I like "Family Guy," and think Stewie has his moments, my favorite character is Brian. As someone who was born at the beginning of the millennial generation, I somewhat resent the implication that anything that caters to that generation is instantly not worth watching. It's just a different type of comedy. Though I do agree that some of the cartoons these days aren't good, but that's only because it isn't my type of humor.
I really cannot stand Betty Boop. I think she's irritating. I would watch an entire day of "Family Guy" over watching one Betty Boop cartoon.
My favorite cartoon characters:
1. Bugs Bunny
2. Daffy Duck
3. Donald Duck
4. Milhouse Van Houten (The Simpsons)
5. Hank Hill (King of the Hill)
6. Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory)
7. Squidward Tentacles (Spongebob SquarePants)
8. Space Ghost
9. Brian (Family Guy)
10. Roger (American Dad)
There are many more. I love cartoons.
