Seth is also a talented voice actor, providing the voices of four main characters on ''Family Guy'' (Peter, Brian, Stewie and Quagmire), three on ''American Dad'' (Stan, Roger, and Greg Corbin, the gay newscaster), two on ''The Cleveland Show'' (Tim the Bear [until season four, when Creator/JessHarnell took over] and Dr. Fist [until season three, when Creator/TomKenny took over for one episode, and Creator/BryanCranston during the fourth season]) and many additional voices. He also voiced several characters in ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'', a sketch comedy show created by his ''Family Guy'' castmate Creator/SethGreen. He made a short foray into feature-length film when he voiced Johann Krauss in ''[[Film/{{Hellboy}} Hellboy 2:The Golden Army]]''. He's also had some bit parts on live-action television, appearing in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', ''The War at Home'' (on the episode "I Wash My Hands of You," where Hillary -- the BrattyTeenageDaughter -- dates a 33-year-old), ''[[FlashForward2009 FlashForward]]''. But he always returns to animation and comedy. He's also a musician, singer and composer, whose work often appears on his shows (particularly ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', which has a lot of memorable musical moments, like ''Shipoopi'' from "Patriot Games," ''A Bag of Weed'' from "Episode 420," ''The Fellas at the Freakin' FCC'' from "PTV," and ''You've Got a Lot to See'' from "Brian Wallows and Peter Swallows").

* AuthorAppeal: A lot of things that Seth likes make it into his shows (music from the RatPack era, 70's-80's pop culture, musicals/showtunes, ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', sci-fi, etc). This carried over to his 2013 stint hosting the Oscars, as his opening monologue/musical number included a cameo by WilliamShatner as Captain Kirk.

* VomitIndiscretionShot: ''All'' of his shows have this. Very rarely will they have [[VomitDiscretionShot vomit discretion shots]], but they're there (particularly in the early episodes of either ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' or ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. Not so much ''TheClevelandShow'').

He is the executive producer for ''Series/CosmosASpacetimeOdyssey'', hosted by NeilDeGrasseTyson. [[PlayingAgainstType However that makes sense.]]

In an odd twist of fate, [=MacFarlane=] was scheduled to fly on one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center, but missed his flight due to a hangover and his agent screwing up his flight plan. He decided to wait for another flight, until he saw the news footage of the World Trade Center being destroyed and realized that [[FridgeHorror that could have been him]]. He vowed never to make 9/11 jokes on his shows because of this, but, after a while, the vow was broken and some slipped through (''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' was originally created as a reflection of the post-9/11 world, which was rife with overzealous patriotism, the desperate need to be safe [even if it means encroaching on others' rights], and claims that the media and the government is paralyzing people into fearing for their lives).
