"Daddy loves you, but daddy also loves Star Trek, and in all fairness, Star Trek was here first."
Peter Griffin is the titular main protagonist of the long-running adult-animated comedy television series, Family Guy. A portly father from Rhode Island who's an immature, dim-witted, outspoken, eccentric alcoholic, working hard hours at a toy factory. He is, among other things, the husband of Lois Griffin, the father of Meg, Chris and Stewie Griffin, and the owner/caretaker of Brian Griffin.
He is created and voiced by Seth MacFarlane, using a voice that sounds like Archie Bunker, only whinier.
Why He Rocks
- He’s a very caring father to Meg, Chris and Stewie and well-meaning husband to Lois.
- He has shown to be great friends towards Brian, Quagmire, Joe and Cleveland.
- Even though he has his flaws and wrong doings, he‘s shown to learn from his mistakes.
- He has many, MANY funny moments.
- Seth McFarlane does a fantastic job at providing his voice.
- He’s a lot more understanding then he appears to be.
- He spawned many hilarious memes, a good example is the “You know what really grinds my gears?....” meme.
- Even when Peter is doing something that’s idiotic or ridiculous, it’ll still come off as hilarious.
- His nasal "Heheheheheheheh!" is a memorable part of his character.
- Him, along with the rest of his friends and family, have been flanderized horribly in later seasons.
