A transition from a Republican government to a Democratic one might prove to be a difficult transition for several government institutions, but also, surprisingly, the Fox animated series, American Dad. What will be the fate of right-wing dad Stan if Barack Obama wins the presidential race?
“I think we’ve got to put the country ahead of the show,” said one of the series creators at the TCA Fox animation panel, followed by a hearty laugh from reporters. “Stan’s been on the winning side for so long. To see him deal with what’s hopefully gonna be the other side is gonna be an opportunity. It’s really cool for the show. It helps us see him more vulnerable and more frustrated. We’re looking forward to it for more reasons than one.”
