Show Summary

American Dad! from Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, is the animated story of Stan Smith, who works for the CIA and is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity. Stan will go to extremes to protect his beloved America from harm – as evidenced by the terror-alert color code on his fridge, and his frequent knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up.

Production Company: 20th Century FOX.

Also see Family Guy.

Character Guide:

Stan Smith - Stan works for the CIA, and is constantly on the look-out for terrorists. He loves his family and will do anything to protect them, and his country.

Francine Smith - Stan's wife, she has had a past life of drugs, but she has carefully hidden her party-girl personality for the sake of the conservative man she loves. She met Stan after college.

Hayley Smith - The teenage daughter of the family, currently attending community college. Despite her father's best efforts she has turned out to be a left-wing liberal. Stan loves his daughter, but that doesn't necessarily mean he trusts her.

Steve Smith - The dorky son, he tries to act cool, but fails. Steve is on the verge of puberty - but he just can't quite make it. His low social status sometimes leads him to taking drastic action - but no matter what he does, he's just a dork.

Roger - A sarcastic alien rescued by Stan from Area 51. He resents not being allowed to leave the house, so has resorted to drinking wine and smoking cigarettes.

Klaus - A German-talking goldfish, he was a CIA experiment that went horribly wrong when they tried transplanting a German man's brain into a goldfish. Klaus lusts after Francine, and will take any opportunity that comes his way.

Theme Song Lyrics:

Stan: Good morning, USA! I got a feeling that it's gonna be a wonderful day! The sun in the sky has a smile on his face! And he's shinin' a salute to the American race! Oh boy, it's swell to saaay! Good morning, USA! (Good morning, USA!)

      The show is better then the Simpsons and Family Guy No offences Do not End the show cause it's amazing to watch and there should increase the episode as well Cause season 13 is really less American dad should not be cancelled it should be running like the Simpsons I think american dad should have 30 seasons with increase in episode as well and should make it more funny as well.moreless
    • GAHHHHHHHH

      1.0
      The Steve's voice is so annoying its like nails on a blackboard and the alien sounds like Spongebob

      with a nasal condition also the art looks better on family guy this show is just ugly most of the other voices on this show are annoying too
    • Hmm..

      5.0
      I only watch this show once in the blue moon. I do like it, but I just don't think it has the potential and the love for the characters that Family Guy does. Even though FG has gone downhill, I'll always prefer it.
