Joe Swanson Original and Limited Edition Art

Joe Swanson is the Griffins' neighbor and Peter's friend. He is a paraplegic who also suffers from impotence and incontinence. Despite his disability, Joe still proves to be an extremely skilled police officer, as he is constantly seen pursuing criminals or rescuing victims with the aid of his wheelchair and even goes so far as to abandon his wheelchair to complete his work. He used to live in Providence, Rhode Island. In "A Hero Sits Next Door," Joe mentioned that he got crippled when stopping the Grinch from stealing Christmas from an orphanage. He is usually shown as being very tactful, but he also has severe anger issues. He is married to Bonnie Swanson, who was once pregnant for many years. She and he had a son named Kevin who staged his own death in Iraq. He also has an infant daughter, Susie. He has a glass eye, as a result of Peter in the episode "Lottery Fever." In "Joe's Revenge," it is revealed that the fight with the Grinch crippling him was a cover-up and Joe was actually crippled by Bobby Briggs while undercover in his heroin operation. When Bobby was finally apprehended after 15 years and escaped during a prison open house, Joe was denied by the police chief to go after him causing Joe to go after him anyway with the help of Peter and Quagmire. When Joe tracks down Bobby to Atlantic City, they pursue him over the rooftops and into the streets where he escapes amongst the buses. Joe, Peter, and Quagmire are then arrested by two police officers interfering in their police case. Joe discovers that the police officers were actually associates of Bobby Briggs and end up breaking out with Quagmire's swiss-army penis. Joe, Peter, and Quagmire then head off after Bobby Briggs where they learn that he is heading towards Juarez, Mexico and plot to cut him off at El Paso, Texas. Joe eventually finds Bobby in traffic to Mexico and pursues him where they end up in a fight where Joe has him at gunpoint where he mentions how he has to spend a life in a wheelchair. Joe does not kill him yet fires at Bobby's legs where he succumbs to his injuries and is kicked into a river.
