The Simpsons and Family Guy crossover to air in September

2014-05-14 19:00

Los Angeles  - The Simpsons and Family Guy crossover episode will air later this year.

Homer Simpson will come face-to-face with Peter Griffin in an hour-long special titled The Simpsons Guy in September on US channel FOX.

The special episode, featuring characters from both hit animated shows, will see the cartoon patriarchs battle over which fictional beer is better - Family Guy brew of choice, Pawtucket, or Homer's favourite beer, Duff.

The other Simpson and Griffin family members will also hit it off when Peter, Lois and the gang take a trip to Springfield - the fictional town The Simpsons is set in.

Lois Griffin and Marge Simpson will become fast friends, while Bart Simpson and the youngest of the Griffin clan, Stewie, will bond over their shared love of pranks.

The exciting crossover was first announced by FOX last year, who said the Griffins would be ''greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson who welcomes his new 'albino' friends with open arms''.

Both shows air on Sunday nights in the US and will be back for new seasons later this year.
The Simpsons continues its streak as one of TV's longest-running shows, entering its 26th season in September, while Family Guy begins its thirteenth season.
