Where has it actually been confirmed that Vinny will "replace" Brian?

Brian will still be a member of the Griffin family after this episode, as you can see his name in later episode titles, and with Cleveland in the pre-season trailer.

Vinny won't "replace" Brian. 18:53, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

The press release states that Vinny is a replacement, but just like New Brian, it is very likley it is temporary. In addition, Vinny is supposed to return later. --Buckimion (talk) 19:03, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Fair enough, but you're right, it can't be permanent. Certainly not if Brian is the replaced character. There's two more episodes this season with him in the title, and Steve Callaghan confirmed the other day, that Brian will feature in an episode at the start of next season (Season 13). 22:55, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Tell me something I don't know. :D --Buckimion (talk) 22:58, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Thank God! Brian is my favourite character, I would never watch family guy again if he was gone forever

Vinny is just a guest character. We probably won't see him again until Brian the Closer. Lord O' Darkness (talk) 19:32, November 28, 2013 (UTC) 

Scratch that. Tony Sirico (Vinny's voice actor) confirmed he will appear in at least 6 future episodes. But it still doesn't rule out the possiblity of Brian's return. Lord O' Darkness (talk) 15:23, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

I mentioned that already in the place your bets blog. Read down about 4 posts. --Buckimion (talk) 15:26, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

Am I the only person who thinks that Vinny is a douche? To me, he's nothing but an Italian stereotype, and a wannabe mafia member.

Oh yeah where Brian go to make a reapparition as a ghost because the life is the life when you're deat you're death  i think only his ghost will appear.

Spelling Error Edit

In the final area of the article, it should say "he and the Griffins never met, not Griffin's.

Too busy right now. I'll be fixing it later. --Buckimion (talk) 02:39, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

This is a message to Buckmion. What species of dog is Vinny and Brian?

Brian is a white lab as stated in the first paragraph of his page. Vinny is only said to be a "Pussy hound". --Buckimion (talk) 00:23, December 17, 2013 (UTC)


Shouldn't this page be moves to "Vinny Griffin"? He's a part of the family now. -- 21:04, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Should remaining three appearances be noted upon? Edit

Vinny is going to be in three more episodes this season, from what I've heard, unless his voice actor is doing a different character. Still, could that be added to the article? General Ironbeak (talk) 03:48, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Not until they happen. I've heard mixed numbers on the episodes voiced so I'm not sure if any of them are reliable, or will actually be used now. --Buckimion (talk) 03:54, January 10, 2014 (UTC)


When does anyone think any merchandise of the character Vinny will be put into shelves, since he's one of my faves? ~~LDEJRuff~~ 11:09, 14 February, 2014 (UTC)

Knockoff plush at the local county fairs this summer, maybe. --Buckimion (talk) 16:16, February 14, 2014 (UTC)

Anyone else miss him?Edit

Anyone else miss Vinny? He was a nice change to the show, and they threw him out in just 2 episodes. Is anyone with me when I say that he needs a place on the show? Even as a side character, he deserves a place somewhere. Thieverpedia (talk) 10:43, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, I kinda miss Vinny, too; he most DEFINITELY deserves a new role in Family Guy, he'd make a GREAT side character.  ThomasFanAC (talk) 03:39, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

I agree. I was just liking Vinny, until Stewie changed history and Vinny is now back at the pet store. Been watching reruns and boy, Brian is such a dick! Quagmire pointed out his faults and reminded me why I wasn't a fan of Brian. Seriously, he attempted to rape Lois, attacked Peter, even let Stewie get shot in the forehead from a lone shark.Calibur222 (talk) 04:55, April 24, 2014 (UTC)
