family guy cameo question

do the people making family guy have to pay and get permission for all the various cameo's and movie/tv imitations they do? some of them are pretty embarrassing and i can't imagine someone okaying them

With parody, they don't have to get permission.

Section 107 of Copyright Law - Fair Use. It helps jive copyright law with the first amendment. Of course its a fine line between parody and satire, and stuff may be actionable, but no one seems to do it.
