Another day of Comic Con and another day of breaking news. Well news about entertainment so not really news in the sense that it has any impact on the world, but it’s at least news we don’t have to think about too much.
For the 25 years The Simpsons have been on TV, they have only done one official cross over episode. Remember The Critic? That was a brilliant Jon Lovitz show that ran for just two seasons back in ’94-’95. That was the one and only time The Simpsons have ever done a crossover. The Critic was created by Al Jean who is a writer on The Simpsons and in addition to Jon Lovitz, The Critic had Nancy Cartwright (Bart) and Futurama star Maurice LaMarche as voices on the show so it’s not a mystery as to why they did the crossover in the first place. This crossover is interesting because the two shows have really done nothing but take shots at each other over the years. I don’t know if it’s good natured ribbing or genuine dislike between the two shows but this crossover will be worth watching.
Now this Fall there will be a Simpsons/Family Guy crossover. The first preview was released at SDCC (that’s San Diego Comic Con for all of you not in the know) yesterday and the TV world is all in a tither over the preview. Since we want to make sure you are exposed to as much tither worthy news as possible, we have it for you as well.
Simpsons/Family Guy Crossover
The Simpsons/Family Guy crossover will air this Fall. Following that, there will be an additional crossover with The Simpsons as there will somehow be a way for them to hook up with the cast of Futurama.
