‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Family Guy’ crossover episode previewed by Fox

Griffin clan will end up in Springfield in an episode set to air in autumn

The first images of a crossover episode of The Simpsons and Family Guy have been revealed.

Family Guy‘s Griffin clan will end up in Springfield in an episode titled The Simpsons Guy, scheduled to air on Fox in the autumn. Speaking at yesterday’s (May 12) Fox upfronts, Kevin Reilly confirmed that the episode will see the Simpson and Griffin families become friends, though Homer and Peter will fall out over which beer is better, Duff or Pawtucket.

“Generations of fans will be talking about this one,” said Reilly in New York.


According to Fox’s episode synopsis, the Griffins and the Simpsons “get along famously” and Homer “welcomes his new ‘albino’ friends with open arms”. Marge and Lois apparently ditch housework for a heart-to-heart, while Lisa becomes a mentor to Meg and Stewie gets obsessed with Bart and his pranks.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane guested on an episode of The Simpsons earlier this year (2013). Homer Simpson made a previous cameo on Family Guy in 2012, while Peter Griffin briefly popped up on The Simpsons back in 2002.
