creator Seth MacFarlane
plays three different characters: Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin and the talking dog Brian. Cartoon creators sometimes play characters in their own cartoons, but MacFarlane is unusual in that all three are main characters, and all three sing frequently. Plus, Peter, Stewie and Brian sound very different from each other, another remarkable talent for an animator. In 2000, he won an Emmy award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his performance as Stewie Griffin.
