American Dad's showrunner and the voice behind Klaus the goldfish reflect on the show's recent 200th episode...
Laura joined a roundtable at the recent Wondercon in Los Angeles with American Dad co-creator Matt Weitzman and voice artist Dee Bradley Baker to talk about the show’s 200th episode, which aired on the 28th of March in the Us. They chatted about what it takes to keep a show funny and grounded over twelve seasons and two networks...
Can you introduce yourselves just to get us started?
Weitzman: Your voice is so resonant.
Baker: Thank you. Ein bischen.
Weitzman: You actually speak German, don't you?
Baker: Yeah, I do. (Baker spouts a few words of German gibberish)

Back when it premiered in February 2005, animated comedy “American Dad” was widely seen as a “Family Guy” knockoff due to similar styles of animation and comedy and the same creative auspices in “Family Guy” impresario Seth MacFarlane, who created “American Dad” with Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. But they get the last laugh as “American Dad” reaches the 200-episode mark with “The Two Hundred,” airing at 8:30 p.m. March 28 on TBS.
“I think we figured out who we were and it happened fairly early on,” Weitzman says. “We had to separate ourselves from ‘Family Guy.’ In the very beginning we had a few more cutaways and flashbacks and soon figured out that wasn’t going to work, otherwise we’d be a carbon copy. So then we were focusing on stories and characters and realized that was going to be our bread and butter.”
