Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson: how alike they are?


If you’ve watched Family Guy or the Simpsons for any length of time, you’ll notice some pretty glaring similarities. Let’s list a few:

  • They’re both, uh, “big-boned.”
  • They both have long-suffering wives who for some reason put up with all their stuff.
  • Each man has three kids.
  • Both men have issues with their fathers.
  • They’ve both had a ton of very odd jobs.
  • Both are heavy drinkers.
  • Both count watching TV as their favorite thing to do.
  • Both have small attention spans and think of other things when their wives are talking to them.
  • Homer and Peter both had strokes; Peter from eating thirty hamburgers at once, Homer from eating a giant feast including a turkey.

I know there are a lot more similarities; can you think of any others?
