Creator of animated shows Family Guy
, American Dad
, and the Cleveland Show
, MacFarlane is also the voice actor for many of the male characters on his shows, including but not limited to Peter Griffin
, Brian Griffin
, Stewie Griffin
, Glenn Quagmire
, the alien character Roger
, and Stan Smith
Many self professed sophisticated types seem to have a problem with this show because of its frequent toilet humor, sex jokes, racist jokes, AIDS jokes, abortion jokes, gay jokes and just general envelope pushing. Even the creators of South Park
, known for exactly the same type of behavior, allegedly have a feud with Mr. MacFarlane, apparently claiming that the cut-away gags in his shows (mostly in Family Guy) are cheap laughs.
What a lot of these people seem to forget is that regardless of personal opinion, Mr. MacFarlane can sing, act, voice act, play various instruments, do a wide variety of impressions, write comedy, direct, produce, animate, and compose music, not to mention exude a mixture of modesty and genuine charm while drinking a 5th of Jack Daniels and holding an intelligent conversation.
In short, Mr. MacFarlane's talent is irrefutable, although his taste in humor is not for everyone.
1st person: I hate Seth MacFarlane, he's stupid, immature and pretentious, somehow all at the same time!
2nd person: When you work your ass off, become a multi-millionaire based solely on your talents, have one of the most recognized voices in modern entertainment, and become ridiculously handsome, then perhaps people will believe that your whining carries weight. Until then, away with you sir.
