First Look: Sarah Michelle Gellar & Alyson Hannigan Guest Star On ‘American Dad’


It has been a very long time since Buffy the Vampire Slayer actors Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan shared the screen together in the same TV show but at long last … they will be reunited once again … er, in animated form. SMG and Aly will guest star together in an upcoming episode of American Dad on Fox. Click below to get your first look at the Buffyverse alums in their new animated forms and find out what roles they will be playing on the show.

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan play a pair of high school girls competing for the affections of Steve Smith on the Nov. 20 episode of Fox’s American Dad. The twist: Gellar’s character is secretly a robot, operated — ?paging Dr. Freud! — by Steve’s father, Stan. “All Steve cares about is girls,” says Dad co-writer Jordan Blum, a self-described “die-hard Buffy fan.” “So Stan decides to use the CIA avatar program to put his mind into a beautiful 15-year-old girl avatar.” And you thought Sunnydale High was weird.

HMMM … SMG played a robot on BtVS (remember the Buffybot?) and she will play a robot on American Dad? Typecasting, much? Hee hee. No matter what character she is playing I LOVE that she and Aly will be reunited on the same show again. I don’t watch American Dad but I will deffo tune in for this ep :)


  • I immediately thought of the Buffybot!

    I’m really looking forward to this episode.

  • Claire

    They made Alyson look horrible =\

    • Ashley

      Maybe in reference to Willow’s “geek” days on Buffy? That outfit Aly’s character has on reminds me of something Willow wore in Season 1.

    • Sarah

      yeah Willow wore a couple of jumpers like that.

  • If the two characters end up fighting, I’ll wish that it will echo Dark Willow vs. Buffy — that may have just been the most-epic fight throughout the entire series! But we can all dream. :)

    • Smoo

      That was EPIC! I’ll tune it just for SMG and Allyson Hannigan
