"Family Guy's" Brian Griffin died three weeks ago, but thanks to the miracle of modern animation he lives yet again. 

That's right: Millions of fans who actually took seriously the idea that one of the most popular cartoon characters on TV was actually dead can now take solace in the fact that they were ... suckered.

Here's what Seth MacFarlane tweeted after the miraculous resurrection: 

“And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash.”

But really, how easy was this? So easy that all it took was a warp in the space time continuum that allowed Stewie to rescue Brian before he was run over. Watch and weep with happiness -- or at least weep for those gullible enough to believe Brian really was gone for good.
