Watch: Five Minutes from the ‘Family Guy’ & ‘The Simpsons’ Crossover

By July 28, 2014

You might remember back in May we got a first look at the hour-long crossover episode of “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons” that would kick off the new seasons of each show this fall. But now we get an even better glimpse at the epic animation event with five minutes of footage from the episode.

This is the second time “The Simpsons” have had an official crossover episode, the last being with the hilarious animated series “The Critic,” and this aims to be one of the most exciting episodes the series has ever seen as Fox’s second favorite animated family, The Griffins, comes to Springfield. Here’s our first look at the two families meeting in the episode that will premiere this fall:

In the one-hour special, The Griffins become sidetracked and find themselves in Springfield, where they make fast friends with The Simpsons based on their obvious similarities, many of which have been pointed out by naysayers of “Family Guy” for years. But said similarities threaten to tear Peter and Homer apart when an argument over accusations that Peter’s beloved Pawtuckett Patriot beer is nothing but a lesser knock-off of Homer’s equally-beloved Duff escalates into a citywide brawl.

You can also see that Bart and Stewie don’t seem to agree on what constitutes a prank phone call, and Peter teaches Homer all about the cutaway gag. It seems to cover everything you would ever want to see from a meeting of the Griffins and the Simpsons.

And in case you forgot, this won’t be the only crossover episode “The Simpsons” have this year since we’ll also see an episode called “Simpsorama” that will crossover with the now concluded “Futurama.” It sounds like it’s going to be a fun season for the longest running animated series, and if they can pump out episodes as good as the recent LEGO episode, then we should be in for a real treat.

And while we’re talking about “The Simpsons,” take a look at this video of a Homer hologram taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend:
