Did Seth MacFarlane Steal the Idea for Ted? Family Guy Creator Gets Sued

Did Seth MacFarlane steal the idea for his hit movie Ted? Is everyone's favorite wise-cracking teddy bear a stolen idea? Get the scoop. Seth MacFarlane is being sued about a teddy bear. But not just any teddy bear, THE bear named Ted, which inspired a movie he "created" that grossed nearly 550 million dollars worldwide in 2012. Well, as Deadline reports, the originality of that film has now come into question. Bengal Mangle Productions has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Los Angeles, claiming they first came up with that idea in 2008 in a screenplay called Acting School Academy that featured a "foul-mouthed womanizing teddy bear named Charlie." Their bear, Charlie, also lived in a world with humans, and the web series even became a big hit on YouTube and Funny or Die. So, who's telling the truth? Do you think this will affect the sequel set to be released next June? Sound off in the comments, and stick with us at Celebified for the latest buzz.

Thoughts on the Family Guy Simpsons Crossover

Family Guy  is a funny (albeit sometimes stupid) show.  The Simpsons  is a fun show, and a legacy when it comes to TV and especially animated TV in prime time. Though it may seem strange to some, these two joining forces, reality is, it is a pretty cool idea. Why? Because up till now, people seemed to be on one side of the fence or the other. It was “are you a Family Guy fan or are you a Simpsons fan? It was like you could not be both. I think, good or bad, this crossover is just trying to show us we can be both. Though little is known about the show, the rumor is that it will be The Griffins coming to Springfield, though why, we do not know yet. We also know the episode will be an hour long event, melding the two worlds perfectly. So far, we have seen pics of Stewie riding a skateboard with Bart, and Homer and Peter, fighting it out. It all seems pretty typical in terms of what we would expect from either show, but that is not what I am here to talk about. I am here to talk about the doors this may open for other TV crossovers. These are two shows that are, for the most part, competition. Doing this shows us they do not view each other as such, and that could set the tone for some other crossovers down the road. Imagine if SNL did a crossover with MAD TV. Wait, that show has been cancelled? Well, that is a terrible example. But I think you get my point.
