‘The Simpsons’ to guest star on ‘Family Guy’ next year (2014)

The Griffins and The Simpsons will 'get along famously' in an episode titled 'The Simpsons Guy'

The stars of The Simpsons are to make a guest appearance on Family Guy next year (2014), US network Fox has confirmed.

Family Guy‘s Griffin clan will end up in Springfield in an episode titled The Simpsons Guy, scheduled to air on Fox, home to both shows, in autumn 2014.

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. However, Homer and Peter do squabble over the best beer in town: Pawtucket or Duff.

“Fox hasn’t spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight T-shirt shopping,” said Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin in a press release.

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.
