Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story is a direct-to-DVD animated film set in Family Guy's [[Quahog (Family Guy)|fictional universe]]. Released on [[September 27]], [], the movie's main plot point concerns [[Stewie Griffin]] trying to find his real father. The DVD contains commentaries and a sneak preview of ''[[American Dad!]]''. The movie is available in the [[Universal Media Disc|UMD]] format for the [[PlayStation Portable]].
The movie was originally written to be a "straight-to-video" movie in three episode length segments. The three segments, each written by different people, are titled ''Stewie B. Goode'', ''Bango Was His Name, Oh!'', and ''Stu and Stewie's Excellent Adventure''. These three episodes were aired as the three-part season four finale.
[[Fox Broadcasting Company|FOX]] aired the edited and separated versions of the three segments on [[May 21]], []. It also had several scenes cut out, new scenes put in and other scenes altered to make it more appropriate for broadcast on American television.
===Red carpet premiere and opening===
The entire film begins with a pseudo news report involving the premiere of the actual film itself, where several ''Family Guy'' characters have been invited. Eventually, the Griffin family arrives and each of them make a grand entrance, with the exceptions of [[Meg Griffin|Meg]] and [[Chris Griffin|Chris]]. [[Brian Griffin|Brian]] comes out of the limo and asks how everyone got in his bedroom. Chris comes out and makes a joke that he was sitting backwards in the limo so his underwear was going the right way. [[Stewie Griffin|Stewie]] comes out and describes his political career, which resembles [[Saddam Hussein]]'s. [[Lois Griffin|Lois]] falls out as she is extremely drunk because there was booze in the car and is followed by [[Peter Griffin|Peter]], embarrassed beyond belief. Meg comes out and reporter [[Tricia Takanawa]] ask her a question and before Meg can even respond, [[David Bowie]] arrives and Tricia's attention is drawn to him as she [[dry hump]]s his leg and offers to make him fish bowel soup. Other guests included [[Drew Barrymore]], the [[Kool-Aid Man]] and [[Cleveland Brown|Cleveland]]. It ends inside the theater, where [[Glenn Quagmire|Quagmire]] is making a [[bootleg recording]] of the film. On screen we see fictional trailers for fictional movies (including a very clichéd Walt Disney movie). Then, on a green background, we see a sex warning, then it cuts to the 20th Century Fox logo.
==="Stewie B. Goode"===
The film opens at the Quahog Community Swimming Pool. Encouraged by Peter and Lois to take swimming lessons, Stewie meets the star pupil of the class, Brad. Jealous, Stewie decides to try and outdo him in a swimming race. He nearly drowns in the process, while Brad finishes in first place. Feeling humiliated and wanting to kill his nemesis, Stewie rigs a [[lifeguard]] chair with [[dynamite]] and lures Brad beneath it by putting a piece of [[marzipan]] under it. However, Stewie's detonator malfunctions, and he blows himself up and is crushed beneath the lifeguard chair, awakening in [[Hell]]. Stewie is abruptly brought back to Earth, and he decides to change his ways.

Meanwhile, Peter gets a job at [[Quahog 5]], hosting a ranting section known as ''You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?'', in which he [[rant]]s about things that bother him, such as [[Lindsay Lohan]] and the [[19th century]]. Peter becomes extremely popular, overshadowing Tom Tucker and making him feel jealous. Tom tries to ruin Peter's reputation (by shouting at him from behind the set and blabbering right in his face), but is fired.
Stewie's attempts at being a good boy mainly revolve around smothering Brian with affection, much to the latter's consternation. Brian finally goads Stewie into reverting to his old, violent ways, resurrecting Stewie's fear of Hell. Deciding to follow Brian's example of controlling anger through drunkenness, Stewie becomes an [[alcoholism|alcoholic]]; Brian, seeking to cure Stewie, takes him out for a night of drinking at The Drunken Clam which culminates in Stewie ramming Brian's car through the wall of the bar. Knowing Stewie is Peter's son, Tom takes advantage of the situation and presents footage of the accident at the news station. Peter loses his job and Tom regains his post.
The next morning, Stewie wakes up naked in his crib with a hangover, apparently having blacked out and given [[Roger Moore]] his phone number the night before. Stewie laments to Brian his lonely existence in the world, and wishes that there were someone else to whom he could relate, before we are shown a man in [[San Francisco]] who looks and sounds eerily similar to Stewie...
==="Bango Was His Name, Oh!"===
Later, while watching television with their new [[TiVo]], Brian and Stewie see an interview with the man who looks and sounds exactly like Stewie. Stewie is convinced that this man is his real father (he's really not proud of having Peter as a father) and resolves to travel to San Francisco to meet with him.

Learning that Quagmire is going on a Cross "[[Cunt]]ry" trip through all 50 states with the intent of having [[sexual intercourse|sex]] with a woman in every state, Brian and Stewie hitch a ride in his "[[recreational vehicle|Wanna-bang-o]]". At a motel in New Jersey, Quagmire is handcuffed to a bed and mugged by a cleaning woman; Stewie finds Quagmire, and rather than free him, steals the "Wanna-bang-o". Having obtained "pep pills" from a trucker, Stewie goes off-road and crashes the vehicle. When they are stranded in the desert there is a clear homage with ''[[In the Army Now (film)|In the Army Now]]''. Stewie almost gives up, but Brian gives a pep talk.
Back at home, Peter and Lois decide to encourage their older children to date others so that they could spend some time alone together without worry of interruption. They succeed in the end, only to question whether their motives were good and if the kids were really ready to see other people.
Arriving in San Francisco, Stewie and Brian track down the man from the television. Stewie confronts the man on a [[trolley]], and is shocked to discover that the man is actually Stewie from 30 years in the future. The movie then cuts to a brief intermission (with a running commentary from the theatre patrons, since they are still watching the movie).
==="Stu and Stewie's Excellent Adventure"===
"Stu", as Stewie's future self is called, is taking a time-travel vacation, which is how people in the future take time off. Stewie tricks his way back to the future with Stu. In the future, Stu refers to the younger Stewie as a child named "Pablo" from [[Nicaragua]]. Amazingly, no one seems to notice the similarities between the two.
In the year 2035 at a family dinner, Stewie discovers how the lives of his family will pan out: Chris will become a traffic cop and marry a hateful, foul-mouthed hustler named Vanessa who belittles him and insists on putting Peter and Lois in a [[retirement home]]; Meg will [[Transitioning (transgender)|transition from female to male]] after college and lives as a man named Ron; and Brian will die of [[theobromine poisoning]] by eating chocolate he found in the garbage and go to [[Heaven]], and spend a rather promising eternity drinking with [[Ernest Hemingway]], [[Vincent van Gogh]] and [[Kurt Cobain]] (who, in common, have committed suicide).
Stewie over time learns of his own horrible [[destiny|fate]]: at age 35, he will be a [[virginity|virgin]] working for the Quahog Circuit Shack (a spoof of [[Circuit City]], [[Best Buy]] and [[Radio Shack]]) and living in a low-rent [[apartment]] (where he still keeps and talks to his teddy bear, Rupert) and his only friend will be a female co-worker named Fran. Furthermore, he is a doting [[mother's boy|mama's boy]], having long ago abandoned his [[matricide|matricidal]] tendencies.

Disgusted with the way his life will turn out, Stewie remodels Stu's apartment and coaches him through ''[[The Joy of Sex]]'' with the intent of getting Stu to lose his virginity to Fran. Stu and Fran do end up having sex—for about [[Premature ejaculation|eight seconds]], followed by 40 minutes of Stu crying, and then offering to pay for the sex. Fran goes back to Circuit Shack and tells everyone about it, costing Stu his job. Returning home, he finds that his apartment is in flames, ironically caused by "stress-release" candles Stewie placed while redecorating.
His life now ruined, Stu laments the day of his near-death experience at the Community Pool, revealing that memories of the experience will re-surface when young Stewie is 20, causing him to regress and preventing him from taking any risks, hence why he grew up to become such a wimp with a dead end job. Armed with this knowledge, Stu and Stewie proceed to the retirement home where Lois now resides to ask for money to purchase a new time-travel watch; Lois, who reveals she knew all along that "Pablo" was Stewie, obliges (but requests that Chris must never marry Vanessa). They buy the watch, but before Stewie leaves Stu realizes that his history will change if Stewie succeeds, and that they will never see each other the same way again. They say their final goodbyes and Stewie begins his mission.
Stewie travels back in time to the day of the accident (with a brief stop, at Lois' request, to kill Vanessa with an [[Rocket-propelled grenade|RPG]] on her wedding day with Chris) and runs to the pool like Ferris Bueller from ''[[Ferris Bueller's Day Off]]''. He manages to prevent himself from getting crushed by the chair. Past Stewie wonders what happened and asks Future Stewie who he is - Future Stewie responds, and after a brief talk Past Stewie vaporizes Future Stewie with his raygun. By obliterating Future Stewie, the trajectory of his future is changed, without him knowing. The family packs up and heads home, with Meg bidding farewell to a boy to whom she's been talking to, considering how much she likes his name: Ron.
===Afterparty and ending===
After the film ends, we cut to the afterparty, where each member of the Griffin family is interviewed by Tricia Takanawa, sharing thoughts involved with ''Family Guy'' The first part of the movie, "Stewie B. Goode", aired on July 9, 2006 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block. "Bango Was His Name Oh!" aired on July 16, and "Stu and Stewie's Excellent Adventure" aired on July 23.
The content includes some sexual humor, violent scenes, profanity and partial nudity. The DVD and UMD contain a "censor" option (a default setting), which inserts a bleep every time those words are spoken, essentially rendering the film with the same content as would be found in a regular episode of Family Guy, save for extra violence. It should be noted that on the DVD subtitles, the "bad words" are replaced with cleaner words that wouldn't even be considered offensive(e.g.: Peter's line, "Fuck you, America!" is subtitled as "Darn you, America!", and Lois' line, "Fuck yeah!" is reduced to merely "Yeah!").
