I grew up in New England, which has a lot of character but also isn't touched on much in American sitcoms.

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane

It's funny, but at the same time we wanted to make an album that is musically very, very high class, which is what we always try to do on the show.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


It's unheard of for a network to reverse a decision about cancellation, for no other reason, usually, than ego. Luckily for us, Fox is thinking in a business way rather than an ego way.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


King Of The Hill was compared to The Simpsons, and is clearly its own show in its own right. It's not even close.

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


My credit rating went up overnight. Prior to that deal, no one would give me a credit card. I've been with FOX for five years, and it's been a great experience.

The brilliant thing with Family Guy is that they bought the DVDs, which showed what a huge fan base we have and meant another series was commissioned for TV.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The characters don't get older. No one wants to see Stewie grow up because then he'd just get bigger and become a mean guy.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The DVDs were just beautifully done. That home video department, they're just so friggin' sharp and just so on the ball. They really know what they're doing.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The episode we did with the Pope was a lot more offensive to Catholics than the Weinstein was to Jews. I think it had to do with internal politics.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The only problem is time.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The Simpsons did a harassment story and we did a harassment story, and they were two very different stories. I think the same goes for American Dad.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The Simpsons, I think, should have done their movie about six or seven years ago.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


The success of The Simpsons really opened doors. It showed that if you were working in animation you didn't necessarily have to be working in kids' television.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


There are a lot of shows about the Midwest or the South or California, but New England isn't mined all that much.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


There is more creative pressure, but we're also at season 4, so it's in a groove. It balances itself out.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


There was a lot of press coming out about the show topping Leno and Letterman. I never in a million years would have thought they would actually order more episodes.

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


There's this constant threat of fines and a lot more government monitoring of television shows.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


To look at a storyboard and be involved with what the visual acting looks like, as well as the voice acting, is nice. It frees me up to do jokes that are unconventional.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We didn't know how well the show was going to do when it came back on air, so doing a straight-to-DVD movie was a way for Fox to justify the risk.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We got criticism early on. Any animated show that comes along is inevitably going to be compared to The Simpsons.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We have a better idea about what we're doing now, and it's a smoother running process because we've been doing it for as long as we have.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We use the big orchestra for our episodes, and an even bigger orchestra for the album.

Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We were in every terrible timeslot available against these monster shows, like Friends and Survivor. I used to joke and say, We're on against the Olympics next year. And then, sure enough.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We were the equal opportunity offender. If you single out one particular group, you're in trouble. But if you hit everyone equally, it becomes a general kind of thing.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We're careful to be edgy and funny but not horrifyingly so.
Quotation of Seth Macfarlane


We're still ahead of the game. We still have the luxury of being at least one script ahead.
