Seth MacFarlane Universe
The Seth MacFarlane Universe is the universe, wherein his TV shows take place. This includes Family Guy, American Dad!, and The Cleveland Show. The settings of the three shows are located in the planet (Earth), and the same country (The United States of America). Family Guy is in Quahog, Rhode Island, American Dad! is in Langley Falls, Virginia, and The Cleveland Show is in Stoolbend, Virginia.


There have been many occasions, in which people from different shows have crossed over into each other's universes. Some of them funny. Some of them serious. They all prove that they exist in the same universe.

  • At the end of the Family Guy episode "Meet the Quagmires", Peter had messed up the timeline and then fixed it. He then talked about how great it was that everything was back to normal again, building up to the obvious joke. Roger walked up on screen, saying his famous like "Where are all the pecan sandies?"
  • In the Family Guy episode "Lois Kills Stewie", Stan and Bullock both appear in the bathroom, while Stewies hiding in there. They talk about the totally jank rumor, saying that Rob Schneider pays migrant workers to choke him while he masturbates. Later, they confronted Stewie and Brian and tried to shoot them for stealing the secrets, but they escaped.
  • In the Family Guy episode, "Excellence in Broadcasting", When Brian says that he's officially become a republican, a cutaway gag shows Stan in his house, watching Family Guy on TV and saying "Good ... good for Brian."
  • In the first episode of The Cleveland Show, "Cleveland Moves In", Cleveland left Quahog, making it as obvious as possible that he was in fact from the same show, which wasn't really all that necessary.
  • In the Family Guy episode, "Jerome is the New Black", the guys were pissed off that Cleveland left. This was the first Family Guy episode to air after The Cleveland Show first became a thing.
  • In the American Dad! episode "The People vs. Martin Sugar", Stan listed off his top 10 favorite dogs. Number one on his list was Brian Griffin, who made an appearance right in his show. Brian then said "Do I know you?" as he walked off, leaving Stan yelling "STOP ACTING LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW ME!"

Hurricane Flozelle

On the date of September 25th, 2011, the season openers for all three shows coincided, having the same hurricane, known as Hurricane Flozelle, strike the towns of all three shows, and bring them all together. These three episodes would be The Cleveland Show's "The Hurricane", Family Guy's "Seahorse Seashell Party", and American Dad's "Flozelle's Final Fight". The American Dad! episode featured the a brief scene at the end, where Stan, Peter, and Cleveland all interacted with each other after their homes ended up together, in the same wreck.

Additionally, the episode of The Cleveland Show that aired the following week, "This One Thought at Bible Camp" followed up on the destruction of Hurricane Flozelle, by having an episode, where they had to clean up the town, after all of the destruction the hurricane caused. There was a lot of cameos at the beginning of the episode from both Family Guy and American Dad and at the end of the episode, everything went back to normal and there was never any mention of it again in the next Family Guy, American Dad!, or The Cleveland Show episodes.

Other Universes

Tons of other shows are also included in the Seth MacFarlane universe. This originated from Family Guy's crossover with The Simpsons, known as "The Simpsons Guy", featuring The Griffins making it to Springfield, by driving, proving the two worlds to exist on the same planet. The Simpsons has had a number of crossovers with other shows such as The Critic, The X Files, 24, Futurama, Rick and Morty, and Bob's Burgers, and since other shows have crossed over with those shows, those shows, by transitive property, also exist in the Seth Universe.
