|~ Steve in 'The Unbrave One'|
Steven "Steve" Anita Smith is the tetaragonist in the animated television series, American Dad!, voiced by Scott Grimes. He is Stan and Francine's only son and Hayley's younger brother as well as the youngest of the series' six main characters.
According to TVTDB.com, Steve's original design was much geekier and gawky and he was voiced by Ricky Blitt. Halfway through production however, Grimes replaced Blitt and Steve's design was made to be more attractive, so he would be less comparable to Neil Goldman from Family Guy.
Steve is the baby of the family who is Stan and Francine's high-school aged son and the brother of Hayley.
Personality and Traits
Despite his wimpy and nerdy characteristics, Steve is particularly conceited and obnoxious. Along with this, he often proves to be a showman, always ready to put on a performance and show off his abilities, often singing-wise. Steve shows great ambition and enthusiasm for his various interests and pursuits. He possesses a keen interest in the opposite sex and has had an obese girlfriend, Debbie, who Stan disapproved of. Steve's relationship with his father is strained with Stan often behaving judgmentally and intolerantly over Steve's nerdiness, immaturity, and sensitivity. Steve has been known to cop attitude, sometimes rightfully so at Stan over his offensive acts. Steve has three best friends: Snot (with whom he shares a bromance), Toshi, and Barry.
