  1. Herbert

    John Herbert is a fictional character in the animated television series Family Guy. His first name, John, was finally revealed in the episode entitled " Valentine's Day in Quahog." He is voiced by Mike Henry, who created and designed the character. Herbert is an elderly neighbor of the Griffin family who first appeared in the season 3 episode "To Love and Die in Dixie". Henry defines Herbert as a pedophile. He harbors an unrequited lust for Chris Griffin, though the Griffins and the citizens of Quahog are either oblivious to this or indifferent because of his frailty. Herbert's voice and appearance are inspired by an elderly man whom Henry met while working at a grocery store in high school. MacFarlane has also stated that his design was made so his creepy humor would seem funny. Herbert has received mixed reviews from critics. He has also appeared in various Family Guy merchandise and has made several crossover appearances in the Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show.
