Happy Birthday SETH MACFARLANE (38) —
Born in the small New England town of Kent.  He attended and studied animation at the Rhode Island School of Design  and, after he graduated, he was hired by Hanna-Barbera Productions (now  called Cartoon Network Studios) working as an animator and writer on the  TV series "Johnny Bravo" (1997) and "Cow and Chicken" (1995). He also worked for Walt Disney Animation as a writer on the TV series "Jungle Cubs" (1996). He created The Life of Larry (1995) which was originally supposed to be used as an in-between on "MADtv" (1995). Unfortunately the deal fell through but, a few months later,  executives at FOX called him into their offices and gave him $50,000 to  create a pilot for what would eventually become "Family Guy" (1999).
On September 11, 2001, he was scheduled to return to Los  Angeles on American Airlines Flight 11 after being a keynote speaker at  his alma-mater in Rhode Island. Due to a mix-up by his travel agent, he  was told that his flight was scheduled to depart at 8:15am but it really  departed at 7:45am and he had arrived at Boston Logan Airport a few  minutes after boarding was stopped on his flight and he was told he  would have to wait for the next flight. At 8:45am, one hour after the  departure of American Airlines Flight 11, it was hijacked by terrorists  and crashed into One World Trade Center (North Tower) in New York City  killing all on-board. He was able to contact his parents within 20  minutes of Flight 11 striking the first tower to tell them he was okay.  He said that he thanked his travel agent for screwing up the departure  time or he would have been on board. -IMDb
