The Griffin family: Chris, Peter, Stewie, Lois, Brian, and Meg.

Family Guy is an American animated adult comedy created by Seth MacFarlane for Fox Broadcasting Company. Characters are listed only once, normally under the first applicable subsection in the list; very minor characters are listed with a more regular character with whom they are associated.

Griffin family[edit]

Peter Griffin[edit]

Main article: Peter Griffin

Peter Löwenbräu Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is the patriarch of the Griffin household, an Irish-American blue-collar worker. He is an immature, obese, care-free, risk-taking, outspoken, dim-witted alcoholic. Peter's jobs have included working at the Happy Go Lucky Toy Factory, working as a fisherman, and currently working at Pawtucket Brewery.

Lois Griffin[edit]

Main article: Lois Griffin

Lois Patrice Griffin (née Pewterschmidt) (voiced by Alex Borstein) is Peter's wife and the mother of Chris, Meg, and Stewie. She is a stay-at-home housewife who cares for her kids and her husband, whilst also teaching children to play the piano. She is also very flirtatious and has slept with numerous people on the show, and her past promiscuous tendencies, and her hard-core recreational drug-use, are often stunning but overlooked.

Meg Griffin[edit]

Main article: Meg Griffin

Megan "Meg" Griffin (voiced by Lacey Chabert in season 1, Mila Kunis since season 2) is the Griffins' 18-year-old child and only daughter. She is a self-conscious, unattractive teenage girl with low self-esteem, being portrayed as generally soft and non-rebellious. The other family members treat her with contempt, as an object of abuse, and an outcast. Peter refers to Meg as "Pig" in the episode "Peter's Two Dads". Meg often attempts to "fit in" with the popular kids but is rejected. Meg has had several love interests including Brian Griffin, Mayor West, Quagmire, and Joe Swanson.

Chris Griffin[edit]

Main article: Chris Griffin

Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin (voiced by Seth Green) is Peter and Lois' 15-year-old child. He is obese, irresponsible, and emotionally effusive. A recurring gag is that an evil monkey lives in his closet, which he finds out is not evil in the episode "Hannah Banana". He tries fitting in with his peers, but fails due to his social awkwardness.

Stewie Griffin[edit]

Main article: Stewie Griffin

Stewart Gilligan "Stewie" Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is the Griffins' one-year-old child, but often behaves in adult ways such as speaking in an upper-class English accent. However, even having reached the age of one he still has not been weaned. He is a child genius who frequently aspires to murder his mother Lois and take over the world. Stewie has also built a time machine with which he and Brian travel through time frequently.

Brian Griffin[edit]

Main article: Brian Griffin

Brian Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is the family's anthropomorphic talking dog and the best friend of both Peter and Stewie. He and Stewie are often at the center of the show's most critically acclaimed episodes, most notably the Road to... episodes, where he and Stewie go on adventures together. Brian is portrayed as an intellectual who often serves as the family's voice of reason, pointing out how ridiculous Peter's ideas are. He is an alcoholic, a smoker, an atheist, a liberal, and an unemployed writer.

In "Life of Brian", Brian is hit by a car and dies from his injuries, with the family by his side. After a month of mourning Brian's death, they adopt a new dog, named Vinny. However in "Christmas Guy" (two episodes later), Stewie still misses Brian. So he finds a way to go back in time and successfully saves him also meaning that the family never adopted Vinny (though Stewie and Vinny did say their goodbyes).[1]
