Not to be confused with Obie, a similarly named character

Opie is a mentally challenged ex-co-worker of Peter Griffin at the Pawtucket Brewery and ward of the state. He has won "Employee of the Month" at least twenty times and has been promoted ahead of Peter.

He has a mental retardation and he never really does anything. He sometimes tells Peter to stick his finger in his mouth, only to bite it. He wears two different shoes on each foot. He once went for a haircut that went horribly awry. No one other than Angela seems to understand what he's saying. However, Peter has been shown to understand him in some instances such as when he gets fired.

In "Whistle While Your Wife Works", Opie watched Peter and Lois have sex in his office at the brewery.

In Blue Harvest, he played a Tusken Raider.

In "New Kidney in Town", Peter sends him a shoutout on The Price is Right.

In It's A Trap!, he plays a small amphibious alien that swallows the door droid, voiced by Consuela, from Jabba the Hutt, played by Joe Swanson's, palace.

In "The Blind Side", he gets fired and is replaced by a deaf woman named Stella.

He makes a cameo crowd appearance when Peter proposes reinstating the city government in "Tea Peter". Opie can also be seen as Stewie rides through town under Brian's car in "Family Guy Viewer Mail No. 2" and in the courtroom in "The Simpsons Guy".

Without the effects of alcohol, Opie is able to speak normally in "Underage Peter".

He appears dressed as Glenn Quagmire in "A Lot Going On Upstairs" when Brian tries to fool Stewie by dressing the family and neighbors as each other.

In "Don't Be a Dickens At Christmas", Opie dresses up as Santa as he gives his children presents. Afterwards, he pretends to not know of this when his children tell of this event and sings with carolers outside the window.

He is seen working at the brewery again in "Pawtucket Pete". He also has a crowd scene cameo in "No Giggity, No Doubt".

Opie joins the brewery employees in solidarity for Peter in "The Birthday Bootlegger".
