Yes, both shows are 10 years past their sell-by dates, but you know you’re so going to watch. Over the weekend, Comic-Con attendees were the first to see this epic teaser for the long-awaited Simpsons–Family Guy crossover when it was aired during the Family Guy panel.
Says Rolling Stone magazine:
The nearly five-minute teaser finds the Griffins stuck in Springfield, where Peter cautions his family not to drink the water: “Everybody around here looks like they have hepatitis.” As the families merge, Bart introduces Stewie to his prank-call hobby (Stewie doesn’t quite get the premise) and Peter and Homer bond over donuts. The friendship between the two patriarchs sours, however, when Homer tries Peter’s Patriot Ale, which he calls “a lousy rip-off of Duff.” Peter objects in terms that allude to the relationship between the two animated series. “It may have been inspired by Duff, but I like to think it goes in a different direction,” he says. The clip also includes meta-references to The Cleveland Show and Bob’s Burgers.
That same night, FOX will air the much-anticipated episode where one of the Simpsons characters dies. Word on the street? It’s Krusty. OMG, SPOILER ALERT! SORRY.
