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.
From the creator of "Family Guy" comes a man who will stop at nothing to protect his country.
Did You Know?
Steve's original design was much geekier and gawky, and he was voiced by Ricky Blitt
. Halfway through production, his voice actor changed to Scott Grimes
, and his design was made to be more attractive, so he would be less comparable to Neil Goldman, from Family Guy
(1998). This design is a caricature of Series co-Creator, Mike Barker

Roger the Alien
Do not fear me, pretty one, though my outward appearance may repulse thee I assure you my intentions are most pure.
As of the 2008-2009 season, the intro sequence has been completely redone with more modern animation. There are a few minor changes to what happens during the sequence. For instance, Haley puts a peace sign post-it on Stan which Francine subsequently removes, and Klaus kicks Stan his car keys. The old "different newspaper" gag is removed, and instead each intro features Roger in the car with Stan, wearing a different outfit in each episode. See more
