CREATOR OF FAMILY GUY GETS $100 MILLION FROM FOX

Freakin’ Sweet!

Seth MacFarlane, the creator of the “Family Guy” cartoon, has signed a new $100 million deal with Fox tv.

The deal also includes two other cartoons to be produced by MacFarlane- “American Dad” and the upcoming spinoff of the “Family Guy” franchise, “The Cleveland Show.”

Think $100 million is a lot to pay for a cartoon? “Family Guy” has already brought in over $1 billion for Fox. Not bad for a show the network once cancelled.

Macfarlane says he’s thrilled with the new deal (which has taken two-and-a-half years to work out),

“I get a lot of pleasure out of making shows,” MacFarlane said. “It’s a bonus to be getting paid well for it, and it’s a double bonus to be getting paid exorbitantly for it.”

Who’s laughing now?
