First Look at ‘The Simpsons’/’Family Guy’ Crossover ‘The Simpsons Guy’


In addition to welcoming new series during its upfront presentation, Fox also unveiled the first images from “The Simpsons Guy,” the long-teased episode of The Simpsons that will bring the cast of Family Guy to Springfield.

Airing in September, the crossover won’t be the last for the Simpsons: Producers revealed last year at Comic-Con International that an appearance by the Planet Express gang from Futurama is also in the works.


Here’s the official description for “The Simpsons Guys”:

Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest voice Nancy Cartwright) and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa (guest voice Yeardley Smith) takes Meg (Mila Kunis) under her wing and is determined to find something – anything – at which she excels; Marge (guest voice Julie Kavner) and Lois (Alex Borstein) ditch housework for a little bonding; and Peter and Homer fight over the best beer in town – Pawtucket vs Duff.

    Per the capsule description, this appears to be an episode of FAMILY GUY that the Simpsons are guesting on, not the other way around. (The Simpsons voice actors are listed as guest voices.)

    I’d certainly be more enthusiastic about the writers of THE SIMPSONS taking on the Family Guy characters, but I suppose there’s some potential either way.

    didn’t they do this at the beginning of the season on family guy?

    Ah, the Simpsons. One of Homer’s best quotes inspired me to write this essay:

    Rip off that’s overstayed its welcome meets the original article that overstayed its welcome.

    Hear that? That’s the sound of The Simpsons hitting rock bottom.

    from the write up sounds like the simpsons now start the cross over by being on family guy not family guy on the simpsons. though should be interesting to see how long before homer does something to make peter and family want to get away from the simpsons.

    Soooo… just to be clear… this is a Family Guy episode that has the Simpson’s as guest stars. At least that is how I read it from the synopsis.

    Family Guy had been garbage since season three. It’s everything South Park says it is. A Futurama crossover interests me however.

  • Tommy Rankin

    You know Simpsons has run out of ideas when they start to make multiple crossovers with other series. Though Lady Gaga episode already pretty much showed that Simpsons are dead and this show is just a zombie by now that needs to be put back to grave.
    Well, we’ll always have those first 10 or so seasons, everything else is just… there.
    Good thing that I’ve finally after all these years of hating FG started grown to like that show in its own way. If I still hated it as much as I used to then this crossover would feel horrible.

    So this is what it’s come down to. Sad.

  • Sentry616

    What, the crossover with The Critic wasn’t a shark jump moment?

  • Sentry616

    This will never live up to the lofty hights of fine art that was S06E18 A star is Burns crossover with The Critic.
    Oh, wait.
