Laugh It Up Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy is made up of three specials from the cartoon Family Guy. The episodes are crossovers, and make fun of the original Star Wars trilogy, with Family Guy characters as the Star Wars characters. The episodes in the trilogy are: Blue Harvest, Something, Something, Something, Dark Side, and It's A Trap! The trilogy was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the U.S. on December 1, 2010. It got it's name from an insult Han Solo said to Chewbacca.
When the power goes out, Peter entertains his family by telling them the stories of the original Star Wars movies, with characters from Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, and American Dad! as characters in the movies. As a running gag, Chris always accuses his dad for ripping off Robot Chicken, while Peter retaliates by expressing his dislike of Seth Green movies.
