* TopWife: The 2-part episode "Stan of Arabia" has Stan defect from the USA and convert to Islam, whereupon he takes a second wife for himself whom he nicknamed "Thundercat". Thundercat makes it very clear that she plans to usurp Francine's position as "first wife", and does as much as she can to butter up Stan while undermining Francine. At one point, Stan smugly tells Francine that Thundercat is a better wife because she's "scored more points".

* SpiritualSuccessor: After people got over the "It's a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' [[FollowTheLeader knockoff]]" phase, it's generally been agreed upon by fans to be the spiritual successor to the older episodes of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in terms of writing quality, character development, and storyline depth (in the days before it started pandering to the LowestCommonDenominator). According to Creator/SethMacFarlane, ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is actually supposed to be the spiritual successor to ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' (even though ''All In The Family'' already has one in the form of the short-lived animated sitcom ''WesternAnimation/WaitTillYourFatherGetsHome'', though, these days, ''Wait Till Your Father Gets Home'' is seen as either a dry-run version of ''The Simpsons'' or a dry-run version of ''Family Guy'', sans the flashback and cutaway humor, with some character dynamics of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' in its early days).

* RisngWaterRisingTension: As part of the three-part "Hurricane" story arc that took place across all three of FOX's animated shows at the time, the Smith's become trapped in their house when a hurricane flood hits Langley Falls, and Stan refused to evacuate due to his obsession with the idea that as the man of the house, it was his job to keep everybody safe. Unfortunately, as part of his storm-proofing, he had sealed up the ''storm drain under the house'', leading to the house being washed off its foundation and flooded. It goes downhill from there as Stan's decisions just make things worse at every turn, and almost gets Hailey and Francine killed. In the end, they have to be rescued by Buckle, the mountaineer.
