Why 'Ted' sounds so similar to 'Family Guy's' Peter Griffin
Ted, the foul-mouthed animated star of Friday's R-rated buddy comedy of the same name, may smoke more marijuana than "Family Guy's" Peter Griffin, but the two sound awfully similar. Of course, both are voiced by writer-director Seth MacFarlane, so it's easy to understand why they are so alike. Or is it? MacFarlane also voices "Family Guy's" baby Stewie, the dog Brian, and the next-door neighbor Quagmire, and all three have completely different accents.
