To celebrate the 15th anniversary of American Dad!, TBS will air a curated selection of episodes focusing on the various characters handpicked by the series’ producers, followed by an official anniversary marathon featuring the co-creator’s top 15 favorite episodes on Monday, April 27 from 2:30-10 p.m. EST.
Co-created by MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, American Dad! centers on super patriotic CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn’t let him off so easily – and knows just how to push her father’s buttons. Hayley’s brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex.
The Smith family is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier.
The irreverent, satirical, award-winning animated comedy is executive-produced by co-showrunner Brian Boyle along with creators MacFarlane and Weitzman.
