'Family Guy' Debuts New Dog Vinny After Brian Griffin's Death (VIDEO)

Two weeks after the death of Family Guy's Brian, a new dog has been brought into the Griffin household - and the show's opening credits.

The replacement dog, Vinny, is voiced by 'The Sopranos' star Tony Sirico and was adopted by the Griffins in the episode 'Life of Brian' when a car ran over TV's favourite martini-swiling dog.

The new intro is nearly identical to the old one, except for, of course, the dog. Vinny performs Brian's same exact dance moves in his same exact costume.

After Brian's death, the internet was furious with show creator Seth MacFarlane, who also voiced Brian, and a Change.org petition went up asking him to bring back the beloved pooch.
