Family Guy has a reputation for its savage, tongue-in-cheek jokes however one line left Mila Kunis in total shock after it made it to the air.

The 39-year-old has served as the voice of main character Meg since the animated sitcom's second season debuted in 1999.

Created by comedy writer and voice actor Seth MacFarlane, the series has proven to be quite controversial because of its edgy humour.

Kunis has now revealed the joke she couldn't believe was broadcasted during a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter about voicing the awkward teen for the last 23 years.

The Luckiest Girl Alive star named the 'Prom Night Dumpster' baby song from the twelfth episode of season five titled 'Airport '07'.

The song was used as a cutaway gag during a discussion between Lois (Alex Borstein) and Peter (MacFarlane).

It was inspired by a real-life case in which a high school student delivered a baby in a restroom during her prom before putting the newborn in the garbage. The student then returned to the dancefloor.

The jazzy tune sees the eponymous infant recall his tragic entrance into the world and life thus far, while swinging his umbilical cord around to the beat of the music.

Not long after the song begins, the baby is joined by backup baby singers who also perform amongst the trash left in and around the dumpster.

Let's just say it's not for the faint of heart.

Kunis was more than impressed to see the segment make it to the air. "There are certain things that I remember us doing early on that I could have sworn would never get on the air," she said. "And one of them was [the song] 'Prom Night Dumpster Baby' I was like, 'There’s no way that’s getting on the air.' And then it did get on the air, and I was like, 'Wow, that’s awesome.'"

Kunis, along with Borstein and Seth Green - who voices Chris - were interviewed to celebrate Family Guy reaching a milestone 400 episodes.

Fans will know that this seemed extremely unlikely back in the day after the series was cancelled shortly after the third season aired in 2002.

What should have been the final nail in the coffin led to Family Guy having a revival after repeats of the show aired on the cable channel Adult Swim, which resulted in high DVD sales.

Fox decided to officially bring the show back from the dead and the fourth season began airing in 2005. It has remained a staple in the Fox lineup ever since and is now in airing its 21st season.
