About the line: In "The Best Christmas Story Never", it is revealed that Stan lived in New York in 1970.

I believe this is not correct and should be removed. Stan is shown arriving in NY, exiting the train station, and it is captioned as such. I see no evidence that the previous scene is set in or near NY.

I would delete it myself, but then you'll just undo it and claim I'm wrong - so you may check it out and accept it.

Agreed to a point and edited to reflect such. Stan's Food Restaurant says the restaurant that inspired him was in Philadelphia so it is more likely that he lived in or near Philly and could easily travel to New York. --Buckimion 17:07, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

You put "Stan leases his boyfriend home"

I give up!

Age at Death


Is it me or does Stan die at 100 or 99 in May The Best Stan Win

Something like that since we don't know his actual birth or death date but that's in the ballpark. On the flip side of that, the producers/writers in DVD commentary for "Rapture's Delight" claim that all episodes from that point on are in Stan's personal Heaven so he is technically already dead by that point. --Buckimion 15:58, July 19, 2011 (UTC)

I have to agree. Stan is definetely dead. All episodes after "Rapture's Delight" are from Stan's Personal Heaven. Stanfyord 20:57, July 30, 2011 (UTC) I have to point out that in the episode entitled "Hurricane!", The Smiths experience the same Hurricane, "Hurricane Flozzel" as the cast of The Cleveland Show and Family Guy. Also at the end of the episode, Peter, Stan and Cleveland all meet in Langley Falls(apparently Peter and Clevelands houses were blown there) implying that Stan must be alive to have not only experienced the same hurricane as they did, but to have met them in the first place. The only way this could be explained is if Family Guy and The Cleveland show were both part of Stan's "personal heaven", but, as this is impossible(Family Guy coming long before the American Dad) it is more than likely Stan, as well as all the other Smith's and Characters from the show are alive.

All the episodes after "Rapture's Delight" can't be taking place in Stan's personal Heaven, as Klaus is dead and mounted on the wall by their staircase by the end of that episode. Had all episodes after "Rapture's Delight" been taking place in Stan's personal Heaven, Klaus should still be on that wall and not back in his bowl, alive.

See the (current) final note on this page. The show is merely a production and the comments are just those of the production staff. Continuity does not mean anything. --Buckimion (talk) 11:19, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

You just contrdicted yourself. I'm not being rude so please don't block me but Stan isn't in his personal heaven because " Continuty does not mean anything."


can someone send me a link tothe 1950's anti communist films

Stan's Brother

It says in the biographical portion that Stan has two half-brothers, which I know to be true because we see Rusty in "There will be bad blood" and he talks to another man on the phone refers to as his "half-brother" in "meter made" Stan also says that he lives "in a lake house in wisconsin" which shows that he is not talking to Rusty, who lives in Arizona. Now, the thing that I am commenting about is that it says "Nicholas" is his half-brother, when do they reveal his name, what episode? I haven't ever come across any of the Smiths talk about "Nicholas" in all the time I have been watching the show, so where did this information come from? 23:53, October 5, 2012 (UTC)Autumn, in CA

"Meter Made" is the episode that mentioned Nicholas. Its in the text. --Buckimion (talk) 00:02, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

But when/where exactly does it actually say his name is Nicholas? What episode? What scene? 00:24, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

I'll look for it when I can but it was verified and I have other things going on. --Buckimion (talk) 00:34, October 6, 2012 (UTC)


I've noticed in few episodes, Stan either mentions about, or takes, painkillers. Usually just downing the bottle, taking way too many at a time, or saying how often he's been able to get prescribed painkillers for no reason. I'm just thinking that he has probably, most likely has a problem 04:04, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

I haven't noticed. Can you document episodes? --Buckimion (talk) 04:07, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay in responding. I first noticed it in Brains,Brains and Automobiles, when Stan is walking around in Roger's mind, stops at a treethat grows bottle of pills(assuming painkillers), Stan grabs a bottle and chugged some down. Another in the episode prior to it in the season, Home Adrone, Stan stated while on the plane, "You're talking to the guy who got off and back on prescription painkillers four times." Later in the episode when he is home, he said "But, subconciously, I think I wanted to come home and get these painkillers." Those are the only moments I can recall at the moment.


Stan wants to kill people (even if there never succeeded), then I think it's a villain A Wikia Contributor ITALIAN (talk) 18:03, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

We NEVER count the main cast as villains as everyone hates someone else at one point or another. (FYI - We never use deceased on this wiki either since nearly everyone would qualify.) We only consider others unprovoked reactions to the Smith family if they count as villains. --Buckimion (talk) 18:47, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

The Kidney Stays in the Picture

The episode kind of screws up the timeline. In it Stan and Francine don't get marraied until 1996. 11:45, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Read the very first paragraph of the The American Dad! Wiki Editing Guide. The entire show is a production and continuity doesn't mean squat. --Buckimion (talk) 12:37, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

stan is left handed in episode 4 of season 9123.211.93.102 06:05, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, all cartoon characters are naturally left-handed and it takes an effort to reverse that. Not noteworthy. --Buckimion (talk) 11:45, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

in multiple episodes stan is shown to be left handed101.162.15.111 03:42, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

See above. Not noteworthy. --Buckimion (talk) 03:44, December 15, 2013 (UTC)

every memeber of the smiths stan francine haley steve roger  has killed someone

And your point, besides being badly written, is? --Buckimion (talk) 03:35, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

Stan's Gun

In the pilot episode, Stan fires his gun 20 times. Using this information, I've concluded that Stan's gun is a Glock 20. If anyone can confirm this (or if I'm wrong/made an error), please tell me. MrHexxitFan101 (talk) 21:21, February 28, 2015 (UTC)MrHexxitFan101

We do not permit "identification" of materials outside of what is actually said in episodes or identified by staff. It is considered speculation and not permitted. Too many "experts" try to build an entire case around a feature or two. --Buckimion (talk) 21:23, February 28, 2015 (UTC)

My bad, I just thought might have found an intresting fact. I'll drop the topic. P.S. Sorry for wasting your time. MrHexxitFan101 (talk) 22:28, February 28, 2015 (UTC)MrHexxitFan101

Discussion IS permitted and we do permit entries such as "Stan's gun is similar to a Glock X for "reason."[Followed by link to proof] in the episodes Notes pages. Generally, this does not go back to character pages which rely more on the required proof above. See the entry in 100 A.D./Notes about Holden Special Vehicles and the associated talk page discussion[1]. --Buckimion (talk) 22:41, February 28, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for the super late reply. I found solid evidence that Stan's gun is a Kel-Tec P-11 9mm. Around 3 minutes into season 2, episode 6 "Iced, Iced Babies", Debbie directly states the gun name. (Actually, she says "Tec P-11 9mm". I looked it up and it gave results for the Kel-Tec P-11. I just assumed it was that gun.) What do you think? MrHexxitFan101 (talk) 21:24, March 26, 2015 (UTC)MrHexxitFan101

I'm pulling the episode to confirm, but that does seem permissible. It should be written as "Debbie identified Stan's gun as "X" in "Iced, Iced Babies". --Buckimion (talk) 21:28, March 26, 2015 (UTC)


Roger calls him Staniel in "Roger 'n' Me"

That is ONE of the many pet names Roger has tagged him with and is not considered a likely candidate for his real name. --Buckimion (talk) 20:04, October 27, 2015 (UTC)

Roger family

Should Roger be listed in the family section of Stan's infobox. It was just for one episode but Roger was temporarily Stan's step father.Brandonbaker01 (talk) 02:57, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

No. We have removed virtually all but regular, immediate family. We do not tolerate "dumb" connections from every single plotline. --Buckimion (talk) 03:03, March 2, 2016 (UTC)
