American Dad! and furry
The third episode of the fourth season, "One Little Word", included a short scene set within a furry convention. The spot involves the show's lead character, Stan, and his boss, Bullock, and is within a larger scene involving Bullock's attempt to pick up a girl.
The pair start out at a regular nightclub, but after failing to find anything but tall, beautiful white women they proceed to hanging out in a Goth bar, participating in a line dance in a barn, playing spin the bottle with a group of teens, and at a furry convention.
In each case, they are shown wearing the appropriate clothing; at the convention, this is naturally a fursuit.
In what appears to be a reference to roadkill, a carsuiter (also with a male voice) appears and bumps into the squirrel, knocking him to the floor. The carsuiter proceeds to hump against the squirrel, apparently to their mutual enjoyment.
The car reappears at the end of the episode, humping the unconscious body of the show's space alien, Roger. He is revealed to be Dick, a member of Bullock's CIA staff.
|Stan: Helping you pick up girls? That's our dangerous mission? -- Bullock: It is tonight, Number One. Now keep your eye out for the rarest of birds: the plump Asian skank.|
|Carsuiter: Vroom. Vroom. *humps* -- Squirrel fursuiter: Oh yeah. I'm a squirrel, and that feels greeeaaatt.|
The clip was positively received within the fandom as a good case of humor not taken-too-far in nature.
