Meg Griffin

Megan "Meg" Griffin is the sweet-natured 17 year-old (formerly 16 year-old) daughter of the title character Peter Griffin in the fiction world of the animated TV series Family Guy. Her voice was provided by Lacey Chabert for the first season and by Mila Kunis (That '70s Show) ever since.

Meg's most notable character trait is her burning desire for popularity. The fact that she is not well-accepted in her school often leads to a lot of crying and melodrama.

Meg is seen by fans as the least interesting family member. This is clearly intentional with many jokes being at her expense. In the episode "The Thin White Line", the Griffin family is commissioned by Brian's psychiatrist to write reasons why the pet should attend rehab. When Meg is asked to start, the psychiatrist quickly interrupts and asks someone else of more interest to take over. In another episode, "Family Guy Viewer Mail #1", the family obtains superpowers; Meg's is the ability to rapidly grow her fingernails. Other characters on the show freely disrespect her, including the weight guesser, who guesses how much she weighs ("a lot"), and Peter, who forgets that Meg is a member of the family and instead puts Boba Fett in her place. Interestingly enough however, a fair number of fans find Meg attractive.

She often feels embarrassed by her family. In the episode "Fifteen Minutes Of Shame" she got her family on local newscaster Diane Simmons's talk show to confront them. The family's appearance on that show led to a reality show, The Real Live Griffins. However, this simply increased Meg's feelings of embarrassment, leading her to quit the show. She was replaced by a tall, very attractive, blonde girl who quickly began to steal the spotlight. The Griffins eventually protested, were replaced by a celebrity cast, and then reunited with Meg.

(Neil Goldman), a nerdy kid at Meg's school, wants to be romantically involved with her in many episodes – Meg does not. In the episode "The Kiss Seen Round the World", the two of them kiss each other when faced by their deaths since Meg wanted to kiss a boy before she died. Neil uses video footage of the kiss, along with numerous printed shirts given away for free at school, to show everyone his version of events – that more was going on than there actually was. Meg eventually proves to everyone that her feelings for Neil are far from love. It is also revealed in this episode that Meg is allergic to peanuts.

In the episode "Screwed The Pooch", Brian hints at Meg's real father not being Peter Griffin, but rather one Stan Thompson. Meg, however, is too busy listening to her headphones to notice he said anything.

It has also been implied that at some point in the past Meg killed her younger sister, and her parents then hushed it up. However, her younger brother Chris still has vague memories of this happening, which Peter and Lois assert to him was just a really bad dream.

In the episode, "Don't Make Me Over:", Meg receives a makeover and as a result is turned into a blonde and she eventually becomes the lead singer of a Griffin family band after a nearly disastrous gig at the Rhode Island State Prison in which Peter, Joe, Quagmire and Cleveland suddenly realize they can't sing and Meg and family come in ala Partridge Family to calm the rioting prisoners. The band goes to New York City and performs on Saturday Night Live where Meg loses her virginity live on the air by former SNL cast member and that week's host Jimmy Fallon. However, she doesn't realize that it is on the air until he screams, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", severely humiliating Meg, and, like a dutiful father, Peter beats Jimmy up.
