Family Guy made a risque joke about Kevin Spacey more than a decade before the Oscar-winner was accused of attempting to seduce a 14-year-old actor in the 1980s.

The gag, which appeared in season four of the animated comedy in 2005, showed baby Stewie running naked through a shopping mall shouting 'Help! I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!'

That clip has now resurfaced in the wake of actor Anthony Rapp's claims that Spacey made sexual advances toward him in 1986, when he was just 14.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has not yet commented on the joke.

I'm starting to think Seth McFarlane is some kind of mind reading Jedi master. I feel like after this we need to go back and rewatch every Family Guy episode and look at every joke about everyone in Hollywood. The crazy part is I remember celebrities being called out in the show and kinda just laughing it off because I didn't get it but it was still kinda funny. Now that all this is coming out, I believe every joke on Family Guy is now real.
