Characters

The show centers around the Smith family and various creatures that live with them that Stan has encountered during his work for the CIA.

  • Stan Smith: Works for the CIA and is always on the alert for terrorist activity. He has a terror-alert color code on his fridge and even shoots the toaster when toast pops-up. Stan is also in top physical shape, able to do moves like James Bond.
  • Francine Smith: Sweet and loving wife of Stan Smith, who keeps her own opinions and party-hearty personality mostly to herself for the sake of her husband's ultra-conservative views, although she isn't afraid to put him in his place.
  • Hayley Smith: The ultra-liberal daughter of Stan and Francine. Because of her views, Stan at times distrusts her and puts her through security measures that you would find before entering the White House.
  • Steve Smith: The geeky little brother of Hayley and son of Stan and Francine. He goes to extreme measures to raise his social status.
  • Roger the Alien: The sarcastic space alien who saved Stan's life in Area 51. He spends his time eating (mainly junk foods), smoking, and drinking, as he is unable to leave the house. He has a fondness for Hostess snacks. Also every 7 hours a green waste is ejected from his body. Roger's distinct speech pattern is a parody of Charles Nelson Reilly and Paul Lynde.
