‘Family Guy’ Episode Celebrates ‘Halloween 4’

The Halloween legacy has been referenced in popular culture numerous times over the years, and we want to pay tribute to each one of those shout-outs in an ongoing regular feature here at Halloween Daily News, this time focusing on a 2011 episode of Family Guy that gives some serious props to Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers!

In the 13th episode of Season 10, titled “Tom Tucker: The Man and His Dream”, Peter is thrilled to learn that his local TV news anchor Tom Tucker is secretly George P. Wilbur, who played Michael Myers in Halloween 4, which is Peter’s “favorite movie ever”. It even features a classic clip from the film, featuring Wilbur as Myers and Danielle Harris as his niece Jamie Lloyd.

The “Tom Tucker: The Man and His Dream” episode of Family Guy featuring the Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, or as Peter calls him,”that lovable murderer of teenagers”, can currently be viewed on Netflix via instant streaming here.
