About

The Family Guy Sunroom, also known as the Family Guy Screened Porch, the Family Guy Screen Porch, the Family Guy Side Door or the Family Guy Extra Room, refers to an enclosed porch, or sunroom, on the outside of the Griffin family home in the cartoon Family Guy which many online claimed they'd never seen the inside of. Although the sunroom had been featured in various episodes, it was still a rare occurrence, leading to statistical speculation and conspiracy theories over what goes on in there. The concept started on Reddit in the late 2010s but spread rapidly in early 2023 on Twitter, iFunny and Instagram.

Origin

On May 30th, 2012, Redditor captainspacemuff posted to /r/familyguy,[1] asking the subreddit, "Why does this room exist?!" in reference to what they dubbed the "sun room." The post gained 18 upvotes in 11 years and multiple comments, such as one from Redditor[2] Purecheetodust that claimed it was shown in season 2 episode 20 "Wasted Talent"[3] (screencap shown below).

Spread

On September 9th, 2013, another thread was started on /r/familyguy[4] about the Griffin's sunroom. On May 19th, 2014, a thread was started about the sunroom on StackExchange.[5] More Family Guy episodes were namedropped in both threads in which the sunroom is featured, including a scene from season 9 episode 4 "Halloween on Spooner Street"[6] in which Brian Griffin rams into his reflection on the screened porch's mirrored, sliding doors (YouTube[7] upload shown below).



On March 30th, 2020, ex-NBA player J.J. Reddick tweeted[8] about the Family Guy sunroom, earning 100 likes in three years. On August 19th, 2021, Redditor PrePayMan resurfaced discussion about the sunroom on /r/familyguy,[9] earning roughly 1,700 upvotes in two years.

On December 22nd, 2022, iFunnyer[10] @OB____ posted a meme proclaiming, "this entire room is pretty much never shown," gaining roughly 20,000 smiles in four months (shown below, left). On March 29th, 2023, Twitter[11] user @iamthedunce tweeted "wtf goes on here" and attached a red-circled image of the sunroom, gaining roughly 48,900 likes in one 20 days (shown below, right).

Memes related to the sunroom continued to spread on iFunny in early 2023 following both aforementioned memes. For instance, on April 12th, 2023, iFunnyer[12] @whatsgoingoninthere uploaded a Yes Chad meme about the sunroom, gaining roughly 4,000 smiles in six days (shown below, left). On April 13th, 2023, iFunnyer[13] @whatsgoingoninthere posted a Fluoride Stare meme, gaining over 330 smiles in five days (shown below, right).


At long last, the door has opened. I can now solve the mystery of what is contained within this room. Many men have died for me to stand here today. Curses. This mortal flesh lacks the courage to comprehend such ancient horrors. I shall wonder the earth in shame until my final breath. When you simply ask "whats in that room" but all you get is that flouride "its just a sun room stop asking questions" response MM ES 52 8 EB fein

The "Fluoride Stare" meme was then reposted to Instagram[14] in April 2023.

The reason it isn't used much in show is because it has very little lead for jokes.

The front room has TV (their primary scene starter), front door, Kitchen, & stairs.

The sun room has a side door and no TV. it's good for when someone needs to escape from the rest of the house.
