AMERICAN DAD is an animated sitcom about the life of Stan Smith (voiced by Seth McFarlane), a staunchly patriotic and conservative C.I.A. agent, who resides in the fictional Washington D.C. suburb of Langley Falls, Virginia, with his stay at home wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal). The couples kids liberal minded daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), and regrettably wimpy son, Steve (Scott Grimes) live with them, and Hayleys boyfriend, Jeff (Jeff Fischer) is a familiar presence who eventually moves into the Smith home after he and Hayley marry. Also part of the family is Roger (Seth McFarlane again), an alien who escaped a secret military base, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), a talking goldfish with an implanted East German human brain. Episodes usually center on various challenges or mishaps befalling the family members and their typically ill fated efforts to overcome them.
