If Peter Griffin is your favorite “Family Guy” character, you can get a personalized video greeting or watch funny skits from someone who looks like the real deal.

Robert Franzese, 33, has entertained millions of fans over the past decade with his Peter Griffin cosplays and impressions, according to South West News Service.

He first donned the character’s signature look in 2012 at New York Comic Con after finding his original Ghost Rider costume too hot for the crowded Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Instead of wearing a mask and leather biker outfit, Franzese opted for the clothes he brought in his suitcase and created a climate-friendly Peter Griffin outfit, complete with single-breasted, pants and glasses.

According to Franzese, his last-minute change became an instant hit once people heard his precise impressions.

Since then, Franzese has gone viral several times as Peter Griffin and has become a staple of the comic book convention circuit.

Franzese told Fox News he did not attend New York Comic Con this year, which concluded its four-day run on Sunday, October 10. Instead, he plans to make his return to conventions in 2022.

“I currently shoot thank you videos on Cameo, and manage multiple social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and Twitter,” he wrote in an email.

Robert Franzese got to meet comic book legend Stan Lee as he donned his Peter Griffin cosplay, which features green pants, a white button-down shirt, a black belt, and round glasses.

His most viewed impression on TikTok has over 9.2 million views, an impressive achievement considering he joined the platform in June 2021.

In addition to creating content that can be consumed digitally, Franzese has attended parties and other official events as Peter Griffin.

The talent of the native of Long Island did not go unnoticed by the “Family Guy” team either. Franzese promoted the series’ mobile game app in 2017 and met various actors from the series, including Seth Greene, Adam West, and Ralph Garman.
