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.

Goofs

Crazy Credits

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 »

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.

Truly one of the best animated sitcoms ever
30 September 2018 | by bellino-angelo2014See all my reviews

I have to admit that when I was younger I didn't cared for this show that much. Probably because the humour most of the time was more adult-friendly and not for kids. But in these last years I watched lots of episodes and I liked them. And I am proud of having given the show a chance.

At first, it looks very similar to FAMILY GUY (the other great Seth McFarlane TV show), mainly because Stan Smith, although not selfish and loud as Peter Griffin, manages to be the perfect dad. While Roger the alien and Klaus the fish are much more similar to Brian and Stewie. The flashbacks and cultural references are almost absent and the episodes' plots are more non-interrupted than in the other show.

The animation is very good, and the backgrounds are very warm, I mean, even more than the ones from FAMILY GUY. The theme song is the best part of the soundtrack, and no words can describe how much I love it. And the voice cast is good, especially Seth McFarlane as Stan Smith and Roger the alien (my favourite characters), and I find Klaus' German accent very funny.

Overall, a great animated sitcom and I recommend it to everybody, and I am sure that if you love THE SIMPSONS, FAMILY GUY, FUTURAMA and SOUTH PARK you'll love this show too. It's very similar to all of them and perfect to watch with your family or friends.
