The Simpsons and Family Guy haven't historically been on the best terms. In 2005, a joke on The Simpsons took a dig at the shows' similarities, which Seth MacFarlane said was "definitely a slam." But it appears they've buried the hatchet — mostly.

It appears they've buried the hatchet

The Simpsons and Griffins will meet in a crossover episode of Family Guy airing September 28th on Fox. During a Family Guy panel at Comic-Con, attendees were given a sneak peek at the episode, and now it's available for the world to see. The clip involves more meta humor about the two shows — the beer brand of Quahog is apparently similar to the brew of choice in Springfield — but, despite an epic battle between Homer and Peter, you have to think they'll work it out in the end.

This isn't everything The Simpsons are planning this year, either. Next month, all 25 seasons will air back to back, leading up to the online release of the episodes. And if you're in the mood for another crossover, the Simpsons are set to meet characters from Matt Groening's other project, Futurama, in November.
