Mailbox Madness.png

Mailbox Madness is a Family Guy Pixar short that aired at the end of the episode "Baby Stewie".

Synopsis

Cleveland delivers mail when he comes across five mailboxes with doors that just won't stay closed.

Plot

Cleveland goes around Quahog, happily delivering mail to all the mailboxes in the neighborhood. He comes across a row of five mailboxes and delivers the mail but when he leaves, one of the doors falls open. Cleveland goes back to close it only for another door to open. Cleveland closes that one and the other mailbox opens again. Cleveland drives himself crazy, trying to close the mailboxes and then finally closes them both at the same time, only for a third mailbox to open. Before you know it, all five of the mailboxes are opening and closing all willy nilly and Cleveland is doing gymnastics, just trying to keep them all closed. Finally, he closes all five of them and holds them shut. Then, his phone rings and slowly but surely, he gets off and all the mailboxes stay shut. When he looks at his phone, it's a text from Donna, saying that his mom died. Cleveland frowns in sadness and then all five of the mailboxes open again and all the mail falls out.
