"Banned" Family Guy episode?

I've read that a Family Guy episode is "banned" by FOX and will never be aired again. The episode name I read with this bit of information was "When You Wish Upon A Weinstein". Does anyone know anything more about this?

Taken from http://www.familyguyfiles.com/episodes.php?season=2

Guest Starring: Nicole Sullivan, Mark Hammil

Episode Summary:

After losing the family's rainy day money to a Volcano Insurance fraud, Peter learns from his friends that he needs a jewish person to look after his finances. When just such a guy's car breaks down in front of his house, Peter's finances are saved. After seeing the jew in action, Peter decides Chris needs to become jewish to ensure he gets all the good things in life. Instead of following he true path to becoming Jewish, Peter and Chris head to Vegas for a 'fast and furious' ceremony.


Notes: This 'banned by Fox' episode was leaked to the general public after word that the episode WOULD appear on the Region One DVD collection in December 2002. While the episode is a bit racy at times, they've done worse on other episodes. Curious why Fox got in an uproar about this one.

I've seen this episode, "When You Wish Upon A Weinstein". It's an okay episode - not the best Family Guy but not the worst. Pretty funny overall.

Some quotes:

"Wow, Optimus Prime is Jewish?"

"TONY ROBBINS HUNGRY!!"

Had to split off some posts that were off topic....

Also, please remember that information on how to obtain bootleg material is not allowed on our forums. Repeated incidents can lead to suspensions.

Reopening thread.

So does anyone have any info for the dvd collection? I know they released a season or 2 of it overseas, but I would really love a region one release(esp. if it's all episodes in the boxset).

is there anyway that this show will ever have new episodes on the air again? It was so great, much better than the simpsons are these days. Good TV - it just doesnt last, sad but true

Probably not. Supposedly UPN or Comedy Central is trying to pick it up but they will probably only re-air the ones we've seen.
