Ill, crooked and politically incorrect, the cartoon series presents the adventures of the family Griffin. Enthusiastically Ignorant Peter and his wife Stay-at-home Lois live in Quahog, R.I., and have three children. Meg, the eldest son, is a social outsider, and the adolescent Chris is awkward and disoriented when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius who insists on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie under control as he takes martinis and classifies the problems of his own life.
