Cleveland Brown is the main protagonist of The Cleveland Show. He is an African-American male who is very polite to everyone and has a unique laugh. He was formerly one of Peter Griffin's best friends in Family Guy and also owned and ran a deli. In "Pilot" he moves back to the town of Stoolbend, Virginia where he grew up and finds his old girlfriend from high school, Donna Tubbs (even though Cleveland was in love with Donna but they were only friends and she did not know it). Eventually resparking his relationship with her, they get married and he and his son move in with her and her 2 kids. Cleveland is usually depicted as exceedingly gentle and patient, and it is only on rare occasions that he has been known to lose his temper and resort to violence. However, Cleveland gets visibly annoyed with racist behavior, which sometimes is justified. He often acts as the voice of caution when other characters hatch harebrained schemes. Cleveland's speech is slow and almost elongated in Family Guy, but in the Cleveland show his voice has a wide variety. Various flashbacks give conflicting histories of his speech patterns. He is shown as a more sexual and violent character in his new form than he was originally. He is also known to be a bigot.
