Family Guy - The Characters

You couldn't imagine a British show daring to have people call Prince Charles a "wanker", but 'Family Guy' hides from nothing. In the same episode, the Queen dies in a similar way to Princess Diana...

Revolving around the Griffin family in the fictional Rhode Island town of Quahog, 'Family Guy' makes 'The Simpsons' seem as safe as 'The Brady Bunch'.

Male head of the household Peter Griffin is similar to Homer Simpson. If not as aggressive as Homer (chicken nemesis apart), Peter is an overgrown child just the same.

Lois is Peter's mostly cheerful wife, and the couple have three children - bespectacled teenage daughter Meg, who feels unloved, rather stupid teenage son Chris, and then the real fly in the ointment, the psychotic, witty, cruel toddler genius with a posh English accent (!), Stewie. His sparring partner tends to be the family dog Brian, who happens to be an intellectual alcoholic, who also has a crush on Lois. Yes, this show goes where others fear to tread.

Peter's friends are a weird bunch. Quagmire is sex-obsessed, and has a toe curling effect on the viewer, Cleveland is dry, and goes off at a tangent, and paraplegic police officer Joe is prone to temper tantrums, with his voice sounding like a kick ass army sergeant when the anger kicks in.

Adam West, he of 'Batman' fame, voices insane mayor Adam West! Other regulars are bitching news reporters Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons, cool Japanese reporter Tricia Takanawa, creepy old pervert Herbert, slightly mad pharmacist Mort Goldman, and his Meg-obsessed son Neil.

A lot of famous names appear to add their voices to various characters, but guest stars who have voiced themselves include James Woods, Paula Abdul, Gene Simmons, Frank Sinatra Jr., Waylon Jennings, Marilyn Manson, and Patrick Duffy played his Bobby Ewing character from 'Dallas'!
