Homer Simpson, meet Peter Griffin. Fox has announced that The Simpsons will be appearing in a crossover episode of Family Guy. The episode, titled "The Simpsons Guy," will follow the Griffin family on a road trip that ultimately finds them in Springfield, where they come face to face with Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The landmark television event will air in fall 2014, and Entertainment Weekly says the episode at one point pits Homer against Peter as they passionately argue whether Duff or Pawtucket is the superior local brew. The pairing of Fox's two most successful animation shows is a move that will likely be welcomed by fans, but also bemoaned by viewers who feel both have run well beyond their prime. Next year's crossover episode won't be the first collaboration between these two hit Sunday shows; prior one-off cameos have seen Dan Castellaneta (Homer) appear on Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane on The Simpsons.
