In this episode, Stewie's birth is shown, and when he is removed from the womb, his head is squashed, like he is normally seen. However, in season 3 episode 19 Stewie's head deformed is explained. Stewie is jumping on the bed and slams his head on the ceiling. If his head was normal at one point in time, it should have also been normal when he first came out. See more »

The First Great Episode
5 June 2020 | by injury-65447See all my reviews

Of the first three episodes this one is the clear standout. It's very consistent and filled with nonstop jokes that work.

It helps that it's a Stewie focused episode as his character is pretty much always guaranteed to be amusing. His fear of being returned to the womb is classic. His interactions with the public & other babies is inspired. One of the all time great cartoon characters.

The cult Subplot is also one of the most memorable from early episodes.

Just a very solid episode with great ideas.
