My Name Is Earl - Season 1 DVDs To Have New Bonus Mini-Ep with Family Guy Crossover!

Posted by David Lambert
Well, maybe "crossover" isn't the right word. But Earl *would* meet Stewie Griffin, after a fashion. Our longtime reader, Nick, has sent us a heads-up that filed this report yesterday about plans for a brand-new 15-minute bonus episode included on the upcoming My Name Is Earl - Seaosn 1 DVDs in which the show's title character is influenced by a meglomaniac baby instead of by the idea of karma. Here's a portion of the Zap2It report by Rick Porter:
    Imagine for a moment a TV world in which Earl Hickey, after winning his $100,000 and getting run over by a car, doesn't see Carson Daly talking about karma from his hospital bed.

    Imagine, instead, that he instead took a life lesson from ... Stewie Griffin.

    Or, save yourself some imaginative effort and just wait until the first season of "My Name Is Earl" is released on DVD sometime later this year. Because then you'll find out.

    Greg Garcia, creator of the hit NBC comedy, unveiled plans for the show's first-season DVD set Tuesday night (March 7) to the audience at the Museum of Television & Radio's annual Paley Festival. He says it should be released before the show's second season begins in the fall, and it will contain a fair number of bells and whistles including commentary tracks and selections from "hours and hours" of gag-reel footage cast and crew have accumulated this year.

    "We're actually doing 15-minute mini-episode [that asks] what if Earl [Jason Lee] passed by Carson Daly and landed on Stewie from 'Family Guy,'" Garcia says. Garcia is a former producer on "Family Guy," and both it and "Earl" are produced by 20th Century Fox TV.

Freakin' sweet. For the rest of that story, please visit's site. Our thanks to reader Nick for sending this our way. Stay tuned and we'll let you know more about this upcoming DVD set as updates and developments occur.
