Title: Elijah to be in American Dad
Post by: jubeth on October 23, 2006, 03:45:49 pm

American Dad

''Hopefully, this is our year to break free from the 'younger Family Guy sibling' stereotype,'' says co-creator Mike Barker of the 'toon family headed by CIA agent Stan Smith. The strategy seems to be, Play up the political with what Barker terms ''the American Dad dark twist'': Stan's boss that is, George W. Bush comes to dinner. And... ''Bush ends up falling off the wagon.'' Moving on. ''We have a Christmas episode with Stan when he was a boy. While he's in the past, he realizes that he can severely hinder the left liberal movement if he kills Jane Fonda.'' Guest voices include Lisa Kudrow (not as Fonda) and Elijah Wood. Of course, not every plot is political; sometimes it's educational. ''We've got an after-school-special episode coming up where Stan becomes anorexic.''

I found this via Random Fandom's Live Journal, I have no idea what this programme is like or anything. I hope someone will put it on the internet because I can't get this programme. There is talk that it might air at Christmas.

Here's a little more about this. Tells what part Elijah will be playing , the name of the episode and when it airs:


When Steve's new relationship gives Francine empty nest syndrome, she tries to convince Stan to have another baby. Meanwhile, Roger longs to experience college life as a wild coed but ends up teaching class, and Haley finds a new crush in her classmate Ethan (guest voice Elijah Wood), who turns out to be far from normal in the "Iced, Iced Babies" episode of AMERICAN DAD Sunday, Nov.12 (8:30-9:00 PM ET /PT).

Hmm, an abnormal college/high school student.... where have I heard that before with Elijah? ::)


American Dad is kind of a spin-off sibling of Family Guy (which a fantastic show by the way). It's got the exact same kind of drawing and animation, but different characters, different settings and premise and what not. Well, both of them center around a regular American family with a crazy dad being the head of the household. And the smallest members of the family are always snapping one-liners and trying to take over the world.... this one's not as funny as Family Guy, but they're both pretty entertaining and amusing at times.

Just search up American Dad on Youtube and find a bunch of clips.


But I always love new stuff from Elijah, especially these cartoon appearances. Thanks jubeth. :-*

'American Dad' is actually a really unfunny, awful show. 'Family Guy' is crude but is funny sometimes at least.

I'll be watching anyway, of course ::). My TIVO has the show listed as 'Dungeons and Wagons'. I thought Elijah was on the eipisode called 'Iced,Iced baby'. I guess I'll record it and see :-\

Title: Re:Elijah to be in American Dad
Post by: Blue Star on November 12, 2006, 12:27:01 pm

I'll be able to watch both things at the same time, since one's at 6 and one's at 8. :)

I had the same feeling to seeing the title. It doesn't look the same. I have a bad feeling we're setting ourselves up for a disappointment. :( I'd probably better check somewhere....



Edit: I found out on TV.com that the Iced, Iced Babies (which is the real episode) airs on the 19th, not tonight. ::) Don't bother recording, nuke.

Yes...and the new issue of TV Guide also mentions the episode and that Elijah is in it. Says it's on Sunday, November 19th, 8:30 PM.

Well, at least we know when it will really be on. :) I would have been much more p*ssed if I was wasting my time watching tonight's episode, anticipating nothing. ::)

Man, I wish I'd seen this before I sat through American Dad on Sunday. :P Tehe, my brother thinks I'm weird for sitting through something I don't like to hear his voice. ::) He just doesn't understand. lol.

Title: Re:Elijah to be in American Dad
Post by: deenan on November 19, 2006, 04:37:58 pm

i guess we have the date correct now. it airs tonight.

daadsta, it's an elijah thing. he won't understand. ;)

Well, the description of Elijah's character, Ethan, on American Dad was "far from normal", and they weren't kidding! I hope someone managed to get this formatted into a clip that can be shared with everyone. I completely enjoyed hearing Elijah play this freaky guy, and he sounded like he had fun doing it.

LOL, I loved crazy Ethan. ;D Someone's got to get it on YouTube fast. I need to watch it again and again......

I think people are going to be a little leery of putting an entire network show on YouTube. YouTube just dumped 30,000 videos because of a threatened lawsuit. ::)

I can't, and I assumed it would be on YouTube or something later anyway.

Oh, I DO want to. Watching an actor act crazy it just something you've got to love. ;) okay, I actually mis-read what you said, I meant seeing and hearing him ACT crazy, not be crazy. :P

That's not stopping anybody. Well, not everybody. So far only a few companies are jumping on YouTube and shooting themselves in the foot. There are still a bejillion copyrighted entertainment shows still on and being uploaded. Including Family Guy and American Dad.

wow this episode sounds quite creepy or is the whole show creepy? i don't know american dad at all. i'm trying to find a working download at the moment - there was one yesterday but then it stopped working in the middle of my download. still searching. ;)

Title: Re:Elijah to be in American Dad
Post by: daadsta on November 22, 2006, 04:36:58 pm

Carina, American Dad is up at Youtube if you're still searching. It's bad quality, but it works if you want to watch it. :) I'll post the link to the first part.

Ethan was so creepy. Elijah was a great choice for Ethan. I was very glad to hear him voice this type of character as the other shows he's voiced for have just been rather bland characters.

that's great, thanks so much daadsta! :D :-*
