Storyline

Stan Smith, who works for the C.I.A. and is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity, 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. In addition to Stan's wife and teenage children, the Smith household has two rather unconventional members. There's Roger, the sarcastic space alien who rescued Stan from Area 51, who deeply resents the fact that he's not allowed to leave the house, and therefore, has been reduced to drinking wine and smoking cigarettes, and Klaus, a lascivious, German-speaking goldfish; the result of a C.I.A. experiment gone seriously wrong, where the C.I.A. tried to give a fish a German man's brain. Stan's son is a dorky teenager who tries to be cool. His wife has had a past life of sex and drugs.

Crazy Credits

Up to and including the 2007-2008 season, each episode would include a different Langley Falls Gazette headline, each of which was comical and satirical (examples include "President finally gets joke about last name" and "Israel pulls out of Gaza, Gaza not pregnant." See more »

Alternate Versions

Up until the '08-'09 season, the opening credits featured a shot of Stan looking at a newspaper headline, which would be a joke headline relating to recent events. Episodes shown on Adult Swim have the headlines blanked out, leaving Stan looking at just white space. The credit sequence for new episodes for '08 - '09 eliminate this sequence altogether.

OBSESSED
30 January 2020 | by tylercullenSee all my reviews

I've never done a review, but I think I should just drop one in here for my favorite show ever. I've watched endless amount of shows, movies, and most people's all time favorites. NOTHING beats American Dad. Also, Family Guy is great, but American Dad is a different world! It has everything you can imagine and enjoy and the amount of happiness I get from it is just unexplainable. You could describe it in a million ways and it's still not enough. Always being surprised by what comes next and what Roger is up to. Can't wait for season 15!
