Liberal Art by jbwarner86 Liberal Art by jbwarner86
I started rewatching my American Dad DVDs last night and it prompted me to draw this Hayley model sheet. I could go on another rant about what a shame it is that the show has pushed Hayley further and further into the background in recent years, especially considering the unending supply of political and social drama happening out there in the world that you'd think would naturally provide the writers with a metric shit-ton of episode ideas for an outspoken activist like her. But I won't. :)

Her belly button looks weird in these drawings. Is she wearing her belly ring?

Makes ya wonder indeed about the usage of the daughters in the 3 shows. But I did have a theory about family guy aside from the claimed source that they don't know how to write teenage girls.

Oh, Seth- does somebody need to take a lesson from Joss Whedon on giving focus to strong female characters in episodes of your show? AGAIN? :roll:

Nice job on these, Jesse! I like her and Klaus (another character who gets thrown under the bus on that show!)- [link]

I think American Dad wants to appeal to the politically Conservative, which is why she's...Well, better in the background than "violated". The writers of those shows and the like, are trying to spread a wide net.

Great work on her expressions!

Although I wouldn't call her an outspoken activist. She seems more like the writers' attempt at mocking people who espouse political causes simply for attention or to make themselves look good. Many times on the show, she's shown herself to only support causes for selfish reasons or until they become inconvenient, like when she was in Africa or when she dated one of the immigrants working for Stan's bear-building company.

She's easily my favorite character on the show.
While the show itself is entertaining, it's the Hayley stories which can get interesting (Not always, but more often then not).

It seems for the many episodes where Hayley is in the background or not featured at all, there is always room for a Steve subplot.

Nothing against Steve, but these shows should only have subplots when they're directly related to the main story.

i just think the writers have no idea how to approach such issues without coming across as being up on a soap box.

I think Hayley would make a great companion for your Jocelyn character.

I wonder what would happen if Hayley ever fell for a guy who turned out to be Libertarian?
