For us fans of Family Guy, the November 24th episode where Brian the Dog was killed off, turned out to be a big shock and was quite upsetting.

Fear no more, Brian is back as of last night's episode.

If you missed the show, Stewie went back in time using his time machine and saved Brian from getting run over by the car that killed him originally.

Brian's response was, "Thank you for saving my life. A lot of other families would have just gotten another dog and moved on."

Of course, the irony and funny part of that was the family did indeed get a new dog to replace him.

After the episode aired, show creator Seth McFarlane tweeted, "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you?  Jesus, we'd have to be [bleeping] high.

"Oh and hey...thanks for caring so much about the canine Griffin. He is overcome with gratitude."
