Family Guy Holiday Card
The Family Guy Holiday Card is a Family Guy animated short, released on December 12th, 2012 as part of an annual FOX tradition, where every December, FOX TV Toppers, Gary Newman and Dana Walden make fourth-wall breaking Christmas cards, featuring them inside of various FOX TV shows.

Synopsis

Gary Newman and Dana Walden come over to wish The Griffins a Merry Christmas.

Plot

The Griffins are in the living room, on a snowy winter day. Peter Griffin comes in, after his last day at work, before the holiday break. He complains to Lois about how his boss sent out a stupid holiday video card, (in reference to the one they were currently in). The doorbell rings and Lois answers it, and is surprised to see head FOX executives Gary Newman and Dana Walden there. Peter fears that with they're visit, they bring the news that Family Guy will be getting cancelled, once again. Dana tells them that they're simply just wishing them a Merry Christmas. Gary gives them a wine bottle from Jorin Hill Vineyards as a present. Peter mistakes Dana for Gary's secretary, but Gary explains that she's his partner. Failing to understand how a woman could be as high a position as a man, Peter is shocked to hear that they're a gay couple. Cleveland knocks on the window and nervously asks Dana and Gary if he could have a moment of their time, to discuss The Cleveland Show. Dana closes the window curtain on him as she wishes the audience a Merry Christmas. Peter adds that for their Jewish viewers, he also includes a Merry Tyler Moore. Afterwards, Dana complains about how she got little to no dialogue in the short. Meg then adds that she was also neglected in the short, to which Dana responds to with a "Shut up, Meg", ending off the holiday card.
