Personality

Cleveland is usually depicted as almost exceedingly gentle and patient. This is sometimes played for contrast in the show's often-violent humor, such as when Cleveland is compelled to vandalize a taxi that refuses to pick him up ("Deep Throats"), or when he exhibits uncharacteristic remorseless hatred after shooting Skeet Ulrich ("The Perfect Castaway"). When Glenn Quagmire is discovered to be sleeping with Cleveland's wife, Cleveland exhibits a short, comical burst of rage, but ultimately forgives Glenn so the two remain friends.[3] Cleveland often acts as the voice of caution when other characters hatch harebrained schemes. “Deep Throats” is an episode from season four of FOX animated television series Family Guy. ...

Cleveland's speech is slow, almost elongated. Various flashbacks give conflicting histories of his speech patterns.[4]


Cleveland displays a political and cultural interest in promoting his fellow African Americans. While Cleveland's race seldom causes conflicts with his entirely white neighbors, and while he serves as President of the local Chamber of Commerce ("Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother?"), he remains subject to "different" treatment by the local police (as seen in "Stuck Together, Torn Apart", where the machinery in a police car labels him as a minority suspect), and Cleveland differs with policeman neighbor Joe Swanson on how black strangers should be viewed in white neighborhoods (all in a symbolic, friendly discussion about a black bowling ball amidst white bowling pins) ("Blind Ambition"). ‹ The template below is being considered for deletion. ... “Stuck Together, Torn Apart” is an episode of the American television series Family Guy, guest starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as herself. ...

Cleveland and Peter

Cleveland met Peter Griffin one night, apparently in the early-mid 70s, when Peter was attempting to hitchhike a ride back to Rhode Island. Assuming from their dialogue, Cleveland had recently been dating or married to a woman named Maxine and she had cheated on him. After an encounter with the Ku Klux Klan (who Peter thought were ghosts) near the border of his home state of South Carolina, Peter and Cleveland arrived in Rhode Island, where Cleveland stayed and moved into a house across the street from the Griffins.

Cleveland, Jr. is a cheerful, nice, but hyperactive and loud child with an extremely short attention span (ADHD), in direct contrast to his calm and rather quiet father. In "Love Thy Trophy", his ADHD is demonstrated when they are making a float. Kevin Swanson says that his dad always says to "measure twice and cut once," to which Cleveland Jr. replies "My daddy always say 'Cleveland Jr., stop jumping on the bed.'" He then starts sawing the wood, much to the dismay of Kevin. In "Fore Father", he and Peter Griffin bond over Cleveland Jr.'s natural talent for golf. Then ends when Peter throws a golf ball to him; he drops what he is doing and runs into the distance pretending to be the former Brazilian soccer star Pelé, shouting, "I'm Pelé! I'm Pelé! Yaaaay!

In the Star Wars parody "Blue Harvest", he portrays R2-D2. In this role, Cleveland looks exactly like Artoo down to the last detail, with the exception that the droid wears a wig resembling Cleveland's hairstyle. While Artoo communicates with beeps that only C-3PO can understand, Cleveland retains his normal voice and is understood by everyone, though he does make beeping noises once in a while for comedic effect (Threepio, played by Quagmire even tries to interperet, but gets it wrong) and makes the exact same noises that Artoo makes when he is stunned by Jawas. His voice is also altered slightly to make it sound more mechanical. His body is completely computer generated and cel-shaded. Concept art of the episode shows that Cleveland was to retain his face while the rest of his body would appear as Artoo's. This concept was dropped, possibly because it would bring up difficulties in animating him. This article is about the series. ...
