My Black Son
From the episode: FG509 - Road to Rupert
Singers: Peter Griffin
Voices: Seth MacFarlane

My Black Son is a song sung and created for the television sitcom of the same name created by Peter Griffin in the episode "Road to Rupert" after he destroys the television. He makes up the show in his head, starring himself and Emmanuel Lewis, and gives it an upbeat 80's theme song. The "opening credits" rolling while Griffin sings are scenes from other famous sitcoms, such as Punky Brewster, Family Ties, Laverne & Shirley, Perfect Strangers, Bosom Buddies, Who’s the Boss? and Three's Company.

The show is about a man whose one-night stand with a black woman resulted in a pregnancy. Years later, she wrote a letter to him, leaving their son in his care.
