Call it Animation Domination Integration. Fox said today that a fall 2014 episode of Family Guy will feature those venerable Springfieldians visiting the Griffin family. In the episode, titled “The Simpsons Guy”, Peter Griffin and his clan get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson, who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The regular Simpsons cast (Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith and Hank Azaria) has been set. Both series are part of Fox’s Sunday animation block, which returns with new episodes September 29. The 20th TV-produced Family Guy will be kicking off its 11th season — a baby compared to The Simpsons, the longest-running series in TV history, which is in production on its 25th season.
