The sitcom parodies the typical American family by following the dysfunctional Griffin family on a series of misadventures.

In a family as dysfunctional as the Griffins, even dealing with everyday events can have some unexpected outcomes! See how you can look like your favorite Family Guy characters by following these DIY costume guides.

Meg Griffin

Being a teenager isn’t easy, especially if you’re the only girl in a highly dysfunctional family. You usually end up being the scapegoat. In many ways, Meg is a typical teenage girl with plenty of insecurities that lead her to be bullied and excluded at school. Oblivious to the effect, even her father, Peter, doesn’t shy away from teasing her because she’s not popular at school. Her brother Stewie and dog Brian also ridicule her good-hearted nature. With her pink beanie and subtle bangs, Meg has a quirky side to her. She comes into her own when realizing that she acts like a lightning rod for her family’s dysfunctionality and that they can’t keep it together without her.

The Irish-American father of the Griffin family is also the main character of Family Guy. He is voiced by Seth Mcfarlane himself. His children are Chris (who takes after him in all the wrong ways), Meg, and baby Stewie. His dog, Brian, is his best friend. Despite being a typical blue-collar worker, Peter has been through some unbelievable experiences that you wouldn’t have guessed by looking at him. For example, his ancestors are the founders of the fictional town of Quahog. The city where the animated series takes place. Although his hair-brained schemes to get ahead in life often lead him to throw his family under the bus callously, he loves and cherishes them in the end.

About Family Guy

Family Guy is an original creation by Seth Mcfarlane for Fox that first aired in 1999. It has renewed with over 300 episodes produced! The sitcom follows the Griffin family with father Peter, mother Lois, son Chris, daughter Meg, baby Stewie, and their anthropomorphic dog, Brian. A play on the quintessential family, their dysfunctional behavior lands them in some crazy situations, in addition to Peter’s hair-brained get-rich schemes. Their adult-like Baby Stewie and substance-abusing dog Brian also result in some unusual circumstances.

The Family Guy is also known for its controversial humor that isn’t afraid to offend or gross-out from time to time. The show often breaks the fourth wall and employs metafictional and cutaway gags that tend to make fun of current events with pop-culture references. Their misadventures are usually made even more exciting, with colorful supporting characters that appear randomly.
