Life Story of Seth MacFarlane

Seth Woodbury MacFarlane was born in the small New England town of Kent, Connecticut, where he lived with his mother, Ann Perry (Sager), an admissions office worker, his father, Ronald Milton MacFarlane, a prep school teacher, and his sister, Rachael MacFarlane, now a voice actress and singer. He is of English, Scottish, and Irish ancestry, and descends from Mayflower passengers.

Seth attended and studied animation at the Rhode Island School of Design and, after he graduated, he was hired by Hanna-Barbera Productions (Now called Cartoon Network Studios) working as an animator and writer on the TV series Johnny Bravo (1997) and Cow and Chicken (1995). He also worked for Walt Disney Animation as a writer on the TV series Jungle Cubs (1996).

Is a devoted supporter of the Democratic Party, and is known for mercilessly mocking and lambasting conservatives and their policies through his shows. Ironically, his shows air on the FOX network, which is largely a Republican-supporting channel.

He considered working for the Walt Disney Company after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, but decided against it due to criticism from religious welfare groups. Instead he worked for Hanna-Barbera after the studio received his thesis film, The Life of Larry (1995), which was sent to them by Seth's professor at the RISD. It was accepted into the "What A Cartoon!" shorts program spearheaded by Fred Seibert. It was produced at the studio as a seven-minute short under the title "Larry and Steve". McFarlane performed several of the voice acting roles, some of which he eventually used in Family Guy (1999) for patriarch Peter Griffin and Brian, the family dog.

He found out about his Oscar nomination for Ted (2012) while announcing the 85th Academy Award nominations with Emma Stone. After the press applauded for him, MacFarlane joked "That's cool, I got nominated. I get to go to the Oscars now" because he had already been commissioned to host the ceremony.

Favorite Western film is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962). Prefers Western movies from the 1940s and 1950s as opposed to Spaghetti Westerns, which he finds to be too drab.
