From the creator of 'FAMILY GUY' comes a man who will stop at nothing to protect his country!
Welcome to the dysfunctional world of the Smith family, as Season 1 of the brand-new, hilarious and controversial TV show 'American Dad' is released to buy on DVD on 24th April 2006! From Seth MacFarlane, the Emmy Award winning creator of 'Family Guy', comes the sharp and funny comedy with a gay alien, a sex-mad goldfish and a paranoid CIA agent – Stan Smith! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is proud to present this complete three disc collection, containing all 13 episodes for the great-value price of only rrp. £24.99.
Set in Langley, Virginia, the show revolves around ‘American Dad’ and mistrustful CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and his family. Stan is constantly on the look out for terrorists. He will do anything to protect his country, as evidenced by the terror-alert colour code on his fridge, and his frequent knee-jerk reaction of shooting holes in the toaster whenever the toast pops up!
Stan’s wife Francine (voiced by Wendy Schaal) is a typical housewife who has carefully concealed her party-girl personality for the sake of the conservative man she loves. Their daughter Hayley (voiced by Rachael MacFarlane) is an 18 year old community college dweller. Despite her father’s best efforts she has turned into a left-wing liberal. Steve (voiced by Scott Grimes) is Stan and Francine’s dorky son who, at the age of 13, seems to be on the verge of puberty but can’t quite make it! Steve is unhappy with his low social status and occasionally tries to take drastic steps to change it.
A slightly unusual member of the family is Roger (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), a sarcastic alien rescued by Stan from Area 51. Resentful at not being allowed to leave the house, he has resorted to drinking wine and smoking cigarettes. Last but not least is Klaus (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker), a German-talking goldfish that is the result of a mangled CIA experiment. Klaus lusts after Francine and will take any opportunity that comes his way!
Currently showing on BBC2, Season 1 of 'American Dad' features cameos from a host of stars including Carmen Electra, Patrick Stewart, Seth Green, Ron Livingston and Tori Spelling. Special features on the DVD include audio commentaries, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes and TV spots. Don’t miss the launch of this ingenious political satire on DVD, and watch out for the release of Family Guy Season 4 on the same day!
