Dan Povenmire , who became a director on Family Guy during the series' second season,  took a more prominent role in directing by the third season, having directed five episodes. Creator Seth MacFarlane granted Povenmire substantial creative freedom. Povenmire recalled that MacFarlane would tell him "We've got two minutes to fill. Give me some visual gags. Do whatever you want. I trust you." Povenmire praised this management style for letting him "have [...] fun." Povenmire brought realism, and material from his own experiences, to the visual direction of Family Guy .   For " One If by Clam, Two If by Sea ",  several characters carried out fosse moves in prison — Povenmire went into the office of a color artist, Cynthia Macintosh, who had been a professional dancer, and had her strike poses in order for him to better illustrate the sequence.  In the episode " To Love and Die in Dixie "  Povenmire drew on his childhood in the deep south to sequence a background scene where the " redneck " character nonchalantly kicks a corpse into the nearby river .

Share On Facebook Tweet Share Email Share Share Pin It Share Comment Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy consistently pushes the comedic envelope in TV programming with little regard for decorum. The exploits of the Griffin family have dazzled, delighted, and even disgusted audiences for the better part of two decades. They’re basically a modern-day blend of The Flintstones (1960-1966) and The Jetsons (1962-1963), with just a dash of the original Looney Tunes (1929-1969) thrown in for good measure.
