Initially MacFarlane created two animated films entitled The Life of Larry and Larry & Steve. The characters from these animated movies served as examples of the main characters for Family Guy. The protagonists of the original animated movies were named Larry, and Steve (his dog). MacFarlane decided to rename them into Peter and Brian and create a pilot episode of Family Guy for Fox channel lasting for 7 minutes. It happened in 1998. The show received a green light from Fox and was set for the premiere release in 1999. When season 3 of Family Guy wrapped up in 2002, Fox decided to cancel the show. One episode of the third season was left unaired. However, Adult Swim managed to convince the channel to revive the series for the fourth installment that started airing on the 1st of May 2005.
