American Dad! is about the CIAagent Stan Smith and his family: his wife Francine, son Steve and daughter Hayley, an alien named Roger who is residing with them, and the speaking goldfish Klaus that the brain of an East German ski jumper has. The series is to some degree a satire on the approach to terrorism by the u.s. after the september 11, 2001 attacks.

As with the intro of many other animated series, contains the intro to American Dad! a joke that each episode is adjusted.

In the first three seasons turned this joke to a newspaper headline. While Stan runs out the door of his house (during the singing of "Good Morning, u.s.a."), he takes the newspaper and view quickly on that front is the front page. The text on the front page is different in each episode. These texts are often a form of satire, directed against the mass-media, the u.s. Government and recent news Affairs.

A special version of this intro was used in the episode "Office Spaceman", in which Stan in the newspaper sees that Roger is seen by other people. The intro is abruptly interrupted and goes straight over in the episode.

In season 4 was the intro changed. Starting from this season picks up Stan the newspaper no longer on. Instead, turns out when Stan in his car on his way to the Office of the CIA to sit beside him in the car suddenly Roger, each time dressed in a different costume. Roger sings the last sentence of "Good Morning, u.s.a.!".

Good luck[Edit]Edit

Although the program successful enough for seven seasons, it has not managed to the same viewing figures to pick up as Family Guy or The Simpsons. The viewing figures of the series are roughly equivalent to that of King of the Hill.
