Did You Know?


The "receptionist" featured in this episode, Theodore (Teddy) Bonkers, actually made his first appearance in the season 3 episode, Haylias. Stan had given him to Hayley when she had the chicken pox as a child, and during the fight scene at the conclusion of Haylias, Haley shoots off Teddy Bonker's head. The episode Haylias was also the first episode in the American Dad series to feature Steve and Roger as their alter egos, Wheels and The Legman. See more »

The One With Wheels And The Legman And Stan...
23 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode. It's very funny. First of all, Steve and Roger having a detective agency, adorable. And secondly, calling themselves Wheels and The Legman, seems a bit insensitive. But, oh well, it's a cartoon TV show. I've got to get over these things at some point. In this episode, Stan decides he wants to join the detective agency, and Steve and Roger agree. But eventually, Stan becomes annoying and incessant. They decide to throw him out of the "gang". Which doesn't go over well with Stan. This episode is just so funny. And it makes me laugh every time I see it. Overall, I really love this episode and I give it an 8 out of 10.
