Family Guy The animated series for adults by Seth MacFarlaneThe Griffins (Family Guy in the American original) were created by the American cartoonist Seth MacFarlene. It is a cartoon that traces in a humorous key, the vices and virtues of the average American family, a bit like the Simpsons. Due to the topics covered and the dialogues this cartoon it is not suitable for children. The Griffin family consists of Peter Griffin, the burly head of the family (so to speak), the main character of the series, who embodies the most classic characteristics of the common man: he loves being with friends drinking beer, telling jokes, being glued in front of the TV and not taking into consideration the tiring housework of his wife. Peter Griffin, in the course of situations, loves to remember his past life with several flashbacks, which bring him back to some crazy and funny situations, which make this cartoon really hilarious and "crazy".

Peter Griffin is married to Laws, an adorable wife, intelligent, refined and humble who very often forgives the various shortcomings of her husband (now almost resigned), as she is very much in love. Lois dreams of being able to perform as a singer and play the piano in the theater in front of her audience, with her husband giving her a bouquet of roses. But the reality is very different and Mrs. Griffin has to do the most sacrificing housework, without the slightest help from Peter. The two spouses have three children. Meg Griffin is a 16 year old girl, obsessed with her inferiority complexes due to her physical appearance, not very "flashy". Chris Griffin he is the second child, about 12 years old, very similar to his father Peter both in IQ and in his overweight. He adores his father and supports him in the decisions he makes for him. Finally we find the little one Stewie griffin a child of about 1 year of age, who is gifted with exceptional intelligence and who has the ambition to dominate the world. He has delusions of persecution and imagines finding enemies on all sides and finding himself at the center of international plots, on which the fate of humanity depends. For this Stewie griffin invents and designs sophisticated weapons and machines that can also travel through time. Unlike all normal children, he has a visceral hatred towards his mother Lois, whom she insults and despises whenever she lovingly cares for him. To complete the family could not miss the dog and this is Brian. He is a dog of an unspecified breed, best friend of Peter Griffin, who talks like a mature man and does not hesitate to give valuable advice to his owner as he is much wiser than him. He was found by Peter Griffin at a traffic light, as a bum and window cleaner, and after being welcomed and refreshed he became a full member of the Griffin family. He is secretly in love with Lois with whom he shares a sensitive and artistic soul.
In one episode Peter Griffin had some problems with the law and was forced to stay under house arrest with the electronic bracelet. This is because during the football match of his son Chris, he punched a pregnant woman, whom he had mistaken for a man, after she had insulted her son, guilty of having committed the tenth handball in the area. of rigor. His wife Lois, always full of initiative and good intentions, decides to have a romantic dinner with her husband to make him forget his condition, but when Peter goes down to the cellar, the ghost of beer appears, suggesting that he use that space. to make a brewery, so that he can host all his friends. Forgetting the romantic dinner, Peter Griffin transforms the cellar into a kind of saloon, so he can host his friends without leaving home. Her wife goes on a rampage, but she does not lose heart and takes advantage of the piano, to sing and dance in front of her husband's friends, who are enchanted and fascinated by Lois, causing the awkward Peter to worry a lot. .
Very often, in the course of adventures and gags, show business or political characters such as Liza Minelli or Lola Falana appear, who contribute to making this cartoon always full of funny shots. Anyhow it is certainly not a cartoon suitable for children, as it is not "politically correct" because of the bad words and some scenes understandable only to adults.
