Fox Network has announced that it will have a special crossover episode between its two hit animated series, The Simpsons and Family Guy. The episode will be titled “The Simpsons Guy”, which is airing fall of 2014.
The crossover episode will open up with the Griffin family from Family Guy taking a road trip across the country where they wind up in Springfield, reports Entertainment Weekly. There, they run into the Simpsons who welcome the bunch with open arms. During the episode, the families have some quality bonding time. Marge and Louis have a wife-to-wife moment, while the kids like Bart and Stewie exchange pranking stories. Homer and Peter, however, spend their time arguing about who drinks the best beer: Duff or Pawtucket?
Peter and Homer had something to say about their crossover episode. “FOX hasn’t spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight T-shirt shopping,” said Peter Griffin in a statement. “Finally I can get my hands on this guy!” added Homer.
The Simpsons and Family Guy crossover episode doesn’t air until the Fall of 2014, but there has already been major partnerships between the two series. Both of the animated comedies air on Sunday nights. Dan Castellaneta had a one-line voice cameo in an October 2012 episode of Family Guy and in May, Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, had a prominent guest role in the 24th season finale of The Simpsons.
