Peter Griffin

Claim: Photograph of man named Peter Griffin bears strong resemblance to animated character of the same name.

Status: False.

Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2005]

Allegedly a genuine yearbook photo of a student named Peter Griffin who bears an uncanny resemblance to Peter Griffin, the father on the Fox cartoon Family Guy.


Origins: The humor here supposedly derives from a directory photo (perhaps a school yearbook) of a man named Peter Griffin who bears a strong resemblance to another Peter Griffin, the "big, boisterous lovable oaf" featured in the Fox animated TV series, Family Guy:


However, the same photograph previously appeared on the Internet with a legend identifying its subject as Justin Blair Spaeth:


Justin Blair Spaeth is a real person (who bears a physical similarity to the Peter Griffin character but does not share his name), as evidenced by this snapshot of a Back Stage Blue (the thespian troupe of Notre Dame High School) production of West Side Story.
