Family Guy Crossover Will Introduce the Griffins to The Simpsons in Fall 2014

 Family Guy Simpsons EpisodeCowabunga, dude!

We thought we we’d never live to see the day that Family Guy’s Griffin family met Bart’s bunch from The Simpsons, but that day is rapidly approaching. TVLine has learned that in a fall 2014 episode of Family Guy, Peter & Co. pay a visit to Springfield, where they’ll be befriended by Homer & Co.

It doesn’t matter in the least to Homer that Peter is (in his jaundiced eyes) albino — in no time, the plus-sized pals are drinking brews and debating whether Duff or Pawtucket is the better beer. Meanwhile, Stewie is charmed by Bart’s old-school mischief; Lisa makes it her mission to find Meg’s talent (good luck with that!); and Marge and Lois become bosom buddies.

The Simpsons: Zooey Deschanel, Max Weinberg Set For Valentine’s-Themed Episode

Bart’s rocky romance with Zooey Deschanel‘s Mary Spuckler will play a bigger part in The Simpson‘s 24th season than first thought.

The New Girl star is already set to bring her character back for the show’s Sept. 30 premiere, but TVLine has learned exclusively that she will also appear this winter in a special Valentine’s-themed outing titled “Love Is A Many-Splintered Thing.”

Per a Simpsons source, Bart’s heartstrings are pulled once again when Mary returns to Springfield, but his failure to pay her enough attention strains their relationship.

The episode also features guest turns by former Conan O’Brien bandleader Max Weinberg (playing himself) and noted political biographer Robert A. Caro (also as himself). And as previously reported, Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch turns up in a dual role.

Bart Simpson Loses His Head… to You at Comic-Con!

July 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Now this is the kind of swag that’ll make a Simpsons fan go, “Cowabunga, dude!” If you pass by the FOX FANFARE booth (No. 4313) at Comic-Con next week, you can pick up one of these limited edition Bart crowns!

But, a word of advice: Get there early. It’s first come, first serve, and when the spiky scalps are gone, no amount of d’oh is gonna get you one.

And, in case you forgot — as if! — the Simpsons panel with series creator Matt Groening, executive producer Al Jean, supervising producer Mike Anderson and Yeardley “Lisa” Simpson will take place on Saturday, July 14, at 12:45pm in Ballroom 20.

Your thoughts? Digging the paper Bart ’do, or were you maybe hoping for edible shorts? Sound off below!
