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!)

      I love American Dad. It's Seth MacFarlane's 2nd best work since Family Guy. Love both shows equally.
    • Get rid of Synetech

      This person has much worse behavior than Roger does. THIS PERSON is the one who has no redeeming qualities! He/she is touchy and incompatible.
    • This show is a spin-off of Family Guy, and it is great!

      American Dad is a great show. And anybody who says it is a ripoff of FG, it is not true. AD is a spinoff of FG. Ripoffs and spinoffs are not the same, you know. Anyways, American Dad is about a father named Stan Smith who is with his family, which includes of course Roger the alien and Klaus the goldfish. This show is great. It is awesome.

      This show would actually be okay if it weren't for Roger; he is the absolute worst thing about the show (much worse than Stan's extreme-right attitude). Roger has no redeeming qualities, he is only irritating and annoying.
    • At least This Show Did Not Tank After Family Guy Did In Season 10-11-12-13-14

      Family Guy's recent episodes contain flat jokes and burned out comedy.

      American Dad! recent episodes are pure comedy.
