Seth MacFarlane

By: Alissar SobH

     Seth has done some pretty amazing animations. He has also made movies, and has been in some, too. But on September 11th, 2001, he almost lost is life. Luckily, he didn't lose his life, but he was actually supposed to be on flight 11, that was hijacked to go straight through the twin towers! The plane left 30 minutes late, so he didn't go on that plane. he insted went on another flight. Minutes later, he got a call from his agent saying changing his flight, saved his life! Wow, that must've been real scary!     

       Seth Woodbury MacFarlane, also known as the person who makes the TV shows Family guy, The Cleveland Show, Ted, and many more, was born in Kent,Connecticut, on October 26, 1973. Seth has a sister named Rachel, and his mom and dad are named Ann and Ronald. Seth has had a passion for drawing ever since he was just two. He was always very curious of how animations were made and how can he do it. after all of that, Seth got his own job at the age of nine posting comic strips in the local Kent newspaper.  



You probably wouldn't believe me when I say this, because of how many seasons Family Guy has now, but when the first few seasons of Familly Guy came out, they were really struggling, and was cancelled twice! the episode "Road to Quahog" wasn't so great, so they cancelled that episode. the next time they cancelled the show was much worse. They cancelled it from 2002 to 2005. yes, for 3 whole years! but luckily, a petition with over 100,000 names brought it back to television. 

Before graduating from college, Seth was surprised with an offer that was a once in a lifetime opportunity for him. Hanna Barbera, the people who make the Flinstones, the Jetsons, and more, asked Seth to move to LA and join their group. they saw Seth's thesis film from his college in a competition they were doing, and he won!! Funny thing is, that Seth's teacher submitted it, and Seth didn't even know!
