This animated sitcom follows the misadventures of Stan Smith, a CIA agent who is staunchly Republican and a self-proclaimed American patriot. Stan's extreme actions and little to no attention to potentially disastrous situations makes life for his family and housemates absurd. Stan's wife Francine tries to keep the family in line, but her past of reckless abandon makes it hard for her to be taken seriously. Living with Stan and Francine are daughter Hayley, the college-aged new-age hippie, son Steve, the ambitious and wimpy high school nerd, along with Roger, a sarcastic alien that Stan rescued from Area 51 and Klaus, a German-speaking goldfish that was the result of a CIA experiment gone wrong. The series was co-created by Seth MacFarlane, who voices the character of Stan.
