Dear 20th Century Fox legal department,
With this petition, the undersigned respectfully ask that you reverse your January 19th, 2007 decision to place a cease-and-desist order on Brian Froud\'s and the Shehori Brothers\' critically acclaimed one-man show \'Swiss Family Guy Robinson\'. Based on the information presented to us, we feel the show deserves to carry on, and to either succeed or fail on its own merits.
Note to the undersigned: Since its premiere at the Toronto Fringe Festival in July 2006, \'Swiss Family Guy Robinson\' has drawn raves from Canadian audiences. To boot, it has never received less than four stars from any reviewer. Because Fox has not seen a copy of the show, they have mistakenly asserted that \'Swiss Family Guy Robinson\' relies on copyrighted material from \'Family Guy\'. The truth is that the structure of the show is based on the 1812 novel \'Swiss Family Robinson\', and the jokes, music and storylines are original creations of Brian Froud, Daniel Shehori and Steven Shehori.
Below are some media quotes for \'Swiss Family Guy Robinson\':
\"Not just a collection of spot-on Family Guy impressions, but a hilariously-written show that\'s true to the spirit and attitude of Quahog.\"
