Peter Griffin is the father of this not-quite-so-average family unit of middle class New Englanders. Lois is Peter’s loving wife who struggles to maintain a modicum of normalcy in their home life. Rounding out the Griffin household are their children: teen queen Meg, 13-year-old slacker Chris and their youngest child Stewie, a diabolically clever baby who’s already set on conquering the world. And then there’s Brian, the brainiest of the bunch, who also happens to be the family dog.
