Seth's Girls by jbwarner86 Seth's Girls by jbwarner86
The hurricane crossover event that occurred as part of FOX's Animation Domination this past Sunday night really rejiggered my interest in the world of "Family Guy", "American Dad", and "The Cleveland Show". Call it the MacFarlaneverse, if you will. I've been watching a lot of all three shows lately (thank you, Netflix), and despite the clamoring I hear from most detractors of Seth MacFarlane's work, I can say with certainty that they are not all just the same show dolled up three different ways. However, I'll concede there is one striking similarity - the Griffins, the Smiths, and the Tubbs-Browns all have teenage daughters who get little to no screen time per episode.

Meg shows up sparingly and just to be the butt of somebody's joke. Hayley goes entire episodes without even appearing. And Roberta's lucky if anybody even remembers she exists. As a champion of strong female characters in contemporary animation, it bugs me to see girls with so much potential get tossed to the corner of their respective writers' rooms. I think if these gals ever hung out together, they'd have quite a bit to say about their lots in life.

A Meg, how do I love thee? I'd count the ways, but it would take hours. Still, this should sum it up pretty well.…

I just noticed that Meg is the only daughter of those three shows that cares about others more than herself!

What if you drew Meg lifting or rolling up her shirt to show her belly like the other girls? :D

Love this piece, its a damn shame all the daughters get barely anything to do. Its like every show has to be the same fundamental formula (ie the men have have all the good plotlines, there's a weird non human character, ect). I think Haley is my favorite, love love love her singing voice.

Meg = Socially awkward teenage naive girl in puberty (not uncommon)
Roberta = Socially active black girl
Hayley = Socially well but reclusive and hippie/left-wing
There not alike at all :P but nice drawing
