The producers of the American cartoon show, which is screened in the UK on BBC3, were commissioned to write a special edition to promote the new Microsoft 7 software package. But Microsoft executives were horrified to discover their money had gone towards producing gags about incest, the Holocaust and deaf people. Now the company will no longer back the show in a deal said to have been worth millions. Family Guy, written by Seth MacFarlane and Alex Borstein, follows idle Peter Griffin, his wife Lois, their kids Meg, Chris and Stewie and talking dog Brian. It has already sparked controversy with previous episodes featuring jokes about abortion, Mother Teresa, the disabled and paedophilia. Microsoft had signed up for a variety show episode called Family Guy Presents: Seth And Alexs Almost Live Comedy Show, featuring animated and live sketches. But today a spokesman said: After reviewing an early version of the variety show, it became clear that the content was not a fit with the Windows brand. The special episode will still be broadcast on 8 November, with another sponsor. by georgina littlejohn Offensive: Peter Griffin and, below right, Stewie index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html
