The Simpsons will meet Family Guy for a crossover episode, Fox announced Thursday.
The two highly popular animated comedies are scheduled to meet in autumn of 2014 in a mash-up which will surely have fans jumping for joy.
The episode will take place in The Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield, where Family Guy‘s Griffin family will show up for what will surely be hilarious interaction.
The mash-up has been dubbed The Simpsons Guy and will surely be a win for Fox, which is the home of both shows.
According to Fox, when the Griffin family arrives in Springfield during a road trip, they “get along famously” with the Simpsons.
Homer Simpson “welcomes his new <<albino>> friends with open arms”, the episode synopsis explains.
When the famous cartoon families meet, of course Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin will go head to head over which beer is better – Duff or Pawtucket.
Family matriarchs Marge Simpson and Lois Griffin are apparently set to become pals, whilst Stewie and Bart will bond over their mutual love for pranks.
Fox gave comments on behalf of their characters, with Peter Griffin saying: “Fox hasn’t spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight T-shirt shopping,” and Homer Simpson adding: “Finally I can get my hands on this guy!”
The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, and Family Guy, created by Seth MacFarlane, have never had an official crossover episode.
Seth MacFarlane has appeared in an episode of The Simpsons, and Dan Castellaneta of The Simpsons made an appearance on Family Guy, but that has been the extent of it to date.
The Simpsons has been running for 24 seasons now, while Family Guy is in its 11th season.
