The random escapades of Stan Smith, a conservative C.I.A. Agent dealing with family life, and keeping America safe, all in the most absurd way possible.
The series premiere aired following FOX's coverage of Super Bowl XXXIX (2005).
Roger the Alien:
Thank you Umar, thank you for showing me I can go on without you! I know what you did to our kids you bastard! Ha! Why can't I leave things nice?
Early episodes had Roger gradually learn to use disguises to go out into the world; but in later seasons we see that he had actually been using disguises for decades before he met the Smiths.
Up to and including the 2007-2008 season, each episode would include a different Langley Falls Gazette headline, each of which was comical and satirical (examples include "President finally gets joke about last name" and "Israel pulls out of Gaza, Gaza not pregnant."
Up until the '08-'09 season, the opening credits featured a shot of Stan looking at a newspaper headline, which would be a joke headline relating to recent events. Episodes shown on Adult Swim have the headlines blanked out, leaving Stan looking at just white space. The credit sequence for new episodes for '08 - '09 eliminate this sequence altogether.
