With the enmity that was bubbling under the surface between two of animation’s most famous families, it was bound that they would meet sometime, and that it would be really, really awesome when The Simpsons and Family Guy collided.
This excitedly awaited crossover will show many references to both of the shows, along with allusions to other animated families, including Bob from Bob’s Burgers, and Cleveland, from The Cleveland Show.
These clips are from the episode “The Simpsons Guy,” which will be the season premiere of Family Guy to be released on Sunday, September 28th.
The synopsis reads:
“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 Simpsons (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guess 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.”
Overall, I’m thinking that this looks pretty epic so far.
What do you think of this clip montage? Are you excited for the crossover?
