Stan Smith, an agent working for the CIA, is both the loving husband of the lovely Francine and the proud father of Hayley and Steve. The situation seems ideal. However, Stan tends to be paranoid. He'll do anything to protect his beloved country, the USA, and its conservative values, even if it means shooting his toaster if he suspects betrayal. What's more, their home is shared with Roger, a sarcastic alien, and Klaus, a goldfish of German origin. It all adds up to a very colorful picture of the perfect American dad!
