Split Personalities[]

The show itself has taken on a life and will of its own. Sometimes, American Dad feels like being a different show, or a film, or whatever it wants to. These different personalities branch off from the main show into altogether different territory. Sometimes the aspect ratio of the frame is changed to give the new story a cinematic feel, as with The Golden Turd saga. Sometimes, a television announcer introduces the new personality, as with Mind Quad. Sometimes the split personality has a theme song, like Shoe Police and Reginald's "show."
