The Cleveland Show Season 4 Episodes

Season 4 Episode Guide

23 Episodes 2012 - 2013

The fourth season of this inspired "Family Guy" spin-off shows that (unlike his old neighbor Peter Griffin) Cleveland Brown (voiced by Mike Henry) is still a man of values, but is certainly prone to slip-ups. He leads a football road trip-gone-wrong in rival Goochland, goes on a campaign of revenge through Stoolbend and turns the local cemetery into a hangout with the guys. But that all pales to botching his renewal of wedding vows with Donna (Sanaa Lathan). Daughter Roberta (Reagan Gomez-Preston) is also steamed when Federline Jones (Jamie Kennedy) forgets their anniversary, leading Rallo (Henry) to find her a new man. The latter, the household's 5-year-old-going-on-25, must sacrifice his beloved Afro during a school lice outbreak; and gets to experience life in the "hood" on a visit to his father Robert's (Corey Holcomb) apartment. Meanwhile, Cleveland Jr. (Kevin Michael Richardson) joins Roberta for Halloween hijinks dressed as their parents, and he discovers a talent for pole dancing on a trip to the Y with Freight Train (Craig Robinson).
