Family Guy Meets The Simpsons: Greatest Team Up Since ‘The Avengers’?

In news that will blow the minds of animation fans everywhere, Fox has decided to merge two of its most popular animation shows for one incredible episode. Yes, the Griffin family are going to come head to head with the Simpsons (thanks to Collider for the info). This merging of shows might be due to another one of their popular animation shows American Dad moving on to TBS (scheduled for 2014), and they may be feeling the loss of this show very soon. What better way could there be to ease the pain of this loss and get the ratings up, then having this incredible meeting of the world’s most famous cartoon families. Scheduled for next fall and called The Simpsons Guy, below is a brief rundown of the plot:

family guy meets simpsons the simpsons

[box_dark]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 Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest 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.[/box_dark]

I have to be honest, I never saw this coming myself even with both shows airing on the same network. It’s great that the cast from The Simpsons were up for this, with all the original voice actors playing their parts. As it is set in Springfield, we must see some more of the residents popping up throughout this episode. The interesting thing for me is what tone will the episode have? Both shows feature quirky families and have a heart and moral message in most of their episodes, but they go about them a very different way. Will the shocking humor of Family Guy manage to gel with the more restrained comedy of The Simpsons? What animation style will they be using as both have distinctive art for their shows? This sounds like incredible news and hopefully this will not be the last encounter between the two families.

SNL: 38.1 – “Seth MacFarlane/Frank Ocean” Review

There’s a crisp note in the air (actually here in south Georgia there is no such thing but I like to pretend) which means fall is back and so is Saturday Night Live! Saturday’s premiere was hosted by a man known more for his voice than his face, Seth MacFarlane. I feel the need to be honest here, I actually can not stand Seth MacFarlane. I know, I know… it’s incredibly hard to believe, but it’s true. There is a very good chance my hatred stems from the fact that my husband watches two categories of television:

GB’s VHS Vault: American Cyborg: Steel Warrior

 See if this film synopsis rings a bell with you…

The time is the future, 17 years after the war. What war you ask? It’s never revealed but that’s not important to the plot. America is now a prison camp with an Artificial Intelligence running the show. Cyborgs do the day-to-day bidding of the A.I (in this film however only one cyborg is ever shown).
