Brian begins to search for a way to get back to the United States, but Stewie refuses to leave with him and insists they travel to London. Brian and Stewie search for a camel to use as transportation, and they perform a musical number as a diversion in order to steal one. They begin their journey, but the camel dies in the middle of the desert. They soon find a nearby Comfort Inn, however, in which to stay. They steal a hot air balloon from the hotel premises and make their way to the Vatican City, embarrassing the Pope upon landing, then traveling by train from Switzerland to Munich, and end up in Amsterdam. Upon finally arriving at the BBC Television Centre, Stewie is horrified to learn that the farm is a set, and his beloved characters are merely tired out, disinterested actors. Enraged, Stewie decides to travel back home with Brian to Quahog after getting revenge at the Mother Maggie actress for kicking him by defecating in her shoes. This ordeal also causes Stewie to lose interest in the show.

Meanwhile, Peter is overjoyed to hear about Kiss-stock, a five-night set of concerts in New England by his favorite band, Kiss. He and his wife, Lois, dress in face paint and leather just like the band members in Kiss, as does the rest of the crowd, and they manage to stand in the front row. When Gene Simmons points the microphone at Lois, prompting her to sing the next line in the chorus of 'Rock and Roll All Nite,' Peter is ashamed to discover that she doesn't know the lyrics. Deeply saddened by this, Gene and Paul Stanley leave the stage, leaving Ace Frehley and Peter Criss to perform 'Chattanooga Choo Choo' to cheer up the displeased audience.

After the concert, Peter accuses Lois of only pretending to be a Kiss enthusiast, and they leave the concert venue in disgrace. Later that night, Peter and Lois stop at a Denny's on the way home from the concert. The Kiss members are seated at another table, and Lois recognizes Gene without his 'Demon' make-up as Chaim Witz (Gene's birth name), an old friend. Peter is amazed to discover that Lois or 'Loose Lois' had dated Gene when they were in high school. Peter's faith in Lois is then restored, and he proudly shares the news on public-access television that 'my wife did Kiss.'[2]

Production[edit]

Dan Povenmire, who also directed the first 'Road to' episode, directed 'Road to Europe'.

The episode was written by Daniel Palladino, his first official episode for the series, an executive producer for the show.[2] In addition, the episode was directed by series regular Dan Povenmire,[2] in his fourth episode directing for the season; the first three being 'One If by Clam, Two If by Sea',[3][4] 'To Love and Die in Dixie', and 'Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows'.[5][6]

'Road to Europe' is the second episode of the 'Road to..' hallmarks of the series, which have aired throughout various seasons of the show, and is the second 'Road to..' episode to be directed by Povenmire.[7][8] The episodes are a parody of the seven Road to .. comedy films starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour.[9] The episode was inspired by the 1941 film Road to Morocco, including its musical number '(We're off on the) Road to Morocco', which was previously parodied by the two characters, then with alternate lyrics, in the Family Guy episode 'Road to Rhode Island'.[9] Fans originally believed that the original title of this episode was 'Road to Baghdad', but in an interview with IGN MacFarlane stated that it was not the case.[9]

In addition to the regular cast, the episode featured guest appearances by comedian Andy Dick, actor and director Jon Favreau, actor Sean Flynn, actress and singer Lauren Graham, actress Michelle Horn and voice actor Wally Wingert. It also guest starred Kiss members Gene Simmonsand Paul Stanley as themselves.[10][11]

Cultural references[edit]

'Road to Europe' features several cultural references. Brian compares Stewie's look with Charlie Brown; Stewie responds by comparing him with Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy; both these characters are from the comic stripPeanuts.[2] At the Kiss concert, the song that the band plays, and the one that Lois does not know the lyrics to, is the single 'Rock and Roll All Nite'.[2] In the song Stewie and Brian sing, the Marquis de Sade, singer Ricky Martin and actress Phylicia Rashad are mentioned. Brian also uses Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog's catch phrase, 'For me to poop on' to insult Stewie.[2]

While riding a tour bus in Germany, Brian looks at a history book that has no information regarding German history from 1939 – 1945; the years on which World War II started and ended. Brian questions the tour guide about the dates when Germany invadedPoland, but the guide denies that it happened. Brian keeps insisting until the guide yells 'Sie werden sich hinsetzen! Sie werden ruhig sein! Sie werden nicht beleidigen Deutschland!', literally meaning 'You will sit down! You will be quiet! You will not insult Germany!' while making the Nazi salute with his left hand.[2] The last sentence is grammatically incorrect, as the proper German statement would be, 'Sie werden Deutschland nicht beleidigen!' At the beginning of the episode, the credits are presented with title cards containing images of Brian and Stewie passing by various iconic places in Europe. These include France's Eiffel Tower, Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa and a venetiangondola, the United Kingdom's Stonehenge and Greece's Parthenon.[2] Other iconic items shown include the Union Flag and the Pope.[12]

Reception[edit]

'Brian and Stewie once again reunite for a memorable duet titled, 'You and I Are So Awfully Different.' If that's not enough, Stewie and Brian also manage to offend the Pope on their way to the Jolly Farm Revue set. While not as exciting as some of their other adventures, the musical number alone makes this episode worthy as one of Stewie and Brian's best adventures.'

Ahsan Haque, IGN.[12]

Reviews of the episode by television critics were mostly positive. Critic Ahsan Haque of IGN placed 'Road to Europe' in the top ten of Stewie and Brian's Greatest Adventures, ranking it fifth. Haque noted that the episode is not as entertaining as many of the other Stewie and Brian adventures, but the song included in the episode, 'You and I Are So Awfully Different' made it worthy of an appearance on the list.[12] 'Road to Europe' is the lowest ranked Road to .. episode on the list with 'Road to Germany' at number four, 'Road to Rupert' at number three, 'Road to the Multiverse' at number two and 'Road to Rhode Island' ranked as the best.[12] Television critic Ramsey Isler, also of IGN, commented positively about the episode in his review of the eighth season episode 'Go Stewie, Go,' which contained an American version of Jolly Farm Revue. Isler went on to note, 'for the most part the Jolly Farm concept is much less interesting than it was in the much more amusing and classic Family Guy episode, 'Road to Europe.'[13]
