Nicknames: "Security Officer Peña", "The Many Faces of Security Officer Peña"

Logo: We see a police officer with black hair standing in front of what appears to be an animation studio (It may be the office block that Fuzzy Door Productions, another one of McFarlane's studios, is located). The man then waves and gives a thumbs up while saying "Bye, have a great time!" in a heavy foreign accent. The words "UNDERDOG PRODUCTIONS" are shown below.

Variants: Depending on the episode, the man may say a different line.
  • "Bye, have a wonderful time!"
  • "Bye, have a beautiful time!" (this line was also spoken by a character in the American Dad! episode, "Toy Wh*rey").
  • "Bye, have a great time!"
  • "Buh-bye, see you soon!"
  • "Have a great night!" (he simply gives a thumbs up in this variant).
Trivia: The man in the video is Security Officer Peña, a Venezuelan immigrant who was a security guard at the studio where Family Guy and American Dad! was produced. If you look carefully, you can see that Peña is wearing a necktie with a leopard print on it, most likely a reference to Seth MacFarlane's other production company, Fuzzy Door Productions.

  • On rare occasions on airings of American Dad!on TBS (split-screen credits only), the logo is sped up, as well as the 20th Television logo.
  • Beginning with Season 12, Episode 10 of American Dad!, the text is now in a thinner font.

FX/SFX: It's all live-action.

Music/Sounds: Just the man's voice.

Music/Sound Variants: On the American Dad! episode "In Country...Club", the man's voice echoes, tying in with the theme of the episode's credits.

Availability: Seen on American Dad!.

Editor's Note: This a humorous logo, and is a favorite amongst fans of American Dad! and Seth MacFarlane's works in general.
