Do you think that for Treehouse of Horror XVI that there could be a Halloween segment where The Simpsons stumble into a Professor Frink invention that sends them into New New York's Cryogenic's lab in the year 3000?

And that somehow The Simpsons family ending up aiding the Planet Express Crew but something goes wrong on a Planet they visit..

Something like that..

What do you think??

No.

The Simpsons and Futurama are 2 seperate universes. The Simpsons is a TV show in Futurama, and vice-versa. The Simpsons occassionally makes Futurama references, but that's about it.

And that's the way it should be kept. The end.

I actually think it's a really good idea.

It doesnt have to go along with the rest of the series, especially since it's a halloween episode.

I would personally love to see it.

I agree with beamer that there shouldn't be any crossovers, but a small part of me would like it to happen just so we could see one last bit of futurama.

That does sound great.... except whenever futurama characters show up on Simpsons, they look a little off.  Like when Bender was in that crazy sequence of Bart and Lisa vs. The 3rd grade, his eyes were stark white, I think they're supposed to be a little yellow.... something like that.  roll eyes

(As posted on another forum):

No. I love Futurama and all, but Matt's right.....crossovers ARE cheap and cheesy, including many scenes of "A Star is Burns" (it had to be said). Plus these are supposed to be horror/fantasy stories that stand on their own, and a Futurama crossover would honestly be very irritating.

With that said I'm all for more little camoes as they've been providing. In fact they'd better put one in the Simpsons movie, dagnabit.

If people want a Futurama/Simpsons crossover, read the Comic Two Part Miniseries.  It is actually good for a crossover, and I'd see it as an hour special event, but good luck getting FOX to go with it.  Another Futurama/Simpson Two Part Crossover miniseries comic is coming out this year.
 

Anyway, I think that in terms of crossovers, they don't live up to the fans' imagination.  Jetsons meet the Flintstones is an example of that.

I don't fully approve of a Futurama/Simpson, but I'll still watch.

Well, they had "Matt Groening- creator of Futurama" in one episode so it would be funny to make a story concentrated around him    smile But that probably wonīt happen.

i think it was cause his legs were completely straight, they normally have a relaxed bend in them.
i dont think there should be a crossover, though it would be nice, itd be kind of a cheap victory, to me anyway, you know, 'oh lets just bully them on to the simpsons instead'.

I don't know if I'd like to see the Futurama on  the Simpsons... its pretty much asked for and expected, and Matt Groening stayed away from this obvious move so far...
then again, a short episode of Futurama inside the Simpsons would be great just because it would piss FOX off.

I don't like the Simpsons... They're so yellow and their life is so harmonic, it makes me sick. So of course I wouldn't like Futurama caracters to run around in that series. No really, not even it it WAS the only way to get them back.   no no

They already have the comic crossover, and it is not as good as I had anticipated.  I doubt I'd like one where they go to the Futurama universe, either, but any revival of or reference to Futurama is a good thing.

I think the comic crossover was a good idea, but a whole episode would be too unbelievable.  Then again, the way Simpsons is headed...

would be great.  Like an itchy and scratchy.  And from there, we could have an entire episode of The Simpsons which is just Bart and Lisa watching their new favourite show, Futurama.

Well, since Treehouse of Horrors doesn't take place in the REAL Simpsons universe, technically it wouldn't be breaking the "separate universes" rule, right? Aw, hell. I'd totally watch it. And I think that it'd be just the kind of thing they could pull off. However, they'd have to be careful to not offend/confuse anyone who's not a constant viewer of both shows. Yeah. Maybe it would be more trouble than it's worth. *shrugs*

I like this idea a lot. As long as it's a halloween episode, it's fine. People need to keep in mind that the Treehouse of horror episodes are completely out of continuity.

Bart, Lisa, and the rest of the family should dress up as characters from Futurama but have a storyline not having anything to do with Futurama.  That way it doesn't cross universes but still gives the Futurama fans a treat.  Although many Simpson'-only people wouldnt get it and maybe even complain.

I don't like that.  If they're dressing up, then they're still not really the characters, Bart is just bart in an amy suit, Lisa is just lisa in a professor suit, etc.  On top of that, you're suggesting that the story have nothing to do with futurama, so it's just Bart doing regular bart-y things in an amy suit.

...

Having said that, who would play who?  Just hypothetecially, of course.  (I don't seriously think that Bart woud be Amy.)

Bart...in an Amy suit? That would be very strange indeed.

I'm not sure if I'd like the idea of a Treehouse of Horror short involving Futurama. However, having the characters watching Futurama would be nice.

I'd rather see something making a load of Futurama referances, or a wacky sci-fi adventure a-la Futurama, but crossovers make me queazy.

Like the Simpsons starting an Inter-galactic delivery service, but (insert wacky sci-fi predicament here).

Why not? They had Mario, a Shigeru Miyamoto creation in a recent ep. of the Simpsons, and Futurama would fit way better with the Simpsons universe than Mario.

Yeah, Mario can go anywhere.  He can do anything.

Plus that joke was only a quick parody, the equivilant of putting Fry in the couch gag.  A whole episode or segment on it would be a different story.

Yes, perhaps there could be a brief homage to Futurama in a sci-fi themed Treehouse of Horror. (And quick references have worked fine in Futurama, too. Remember Mario in Anthology of Interest II?) ^_^

I think it would work really well as a cross over idea. but it probably would be done really badly and in order for fan of both Futurama and simpsons to like it, it would have to be very carefully. Still I'd love to see it happen.

Crossovers are a no-no. I'm pretty sure of that. But if you'd like to see a Futurama/Simpsons crossover, the comic's out right now. Part II should be in stores soon, if not already.

Yeah, it's in America. (I do live in America, by the way, still stuck in the non-sunken city of Atlanta.) But I understand your question, as there are many people from the UK on here. Also, the comic to which I'm referring is the 2-part sequel to the first 2-part crossover, just to clarify.   wink

Homer = Bender
Marge = Leela
Bart = Fry
Lisa = Amy
Maggie = Nibbler

(Just hypothetically)

Obviously I love Futurama, so i'd definitly watch, but I don't know how i'd feel about it.

P.S. Why is my signature not woking?

Fry, Bender, and Leela aren't the original characters? Or did you mean they would have the acual characters themselves on the show, instead of the Simpsons dressing up like them?

Aha! I've got it!
 
There should be an episode that has all the characters (or at least all the family members) fighting over which episode is the best!

OK, maybe not a whole episode. But at least a scene of an episode!

That would be cool, they should at least mention the show. Aside from "Bart vs. Lisa vs. the Third Grade" and "Fraudcast News", I don't think i've ever heard them mention the show, yet in the episode where Skinner was supposed to marry Miss Krabappel, everyone made a big deal over Matt Groening (Milouse wanted a chunk of his hair, and got it!)

Have Bart and Lisa watch Futurama at least 3 times.

I have a question, Futurama obviously exsists in the Simpsons universe (episodes listed above), and The Simpsons exsists in the futurama universe "Mars University" (Homer and Bart toys are prizes to be won in the canival that Fry got his diploma) and "Big Ball of Garbage" (while on the ball of garbage, there is a pile of pull string Bart Simpson toys, Bender eats Bart's shorts as instructed by the toy). So my question is, how is this possible? If Futurama is on in the Simpson's universe, would any of the Simpsons see themselves on one of those episodes? I'm confused, was this explained anywhere?

Well, originally, it was supposed to be that Futurama was "real" and the Simpsons was just a show in their world. However, after Futurama was cancelled, it made more appearences as being a show in the Simpsons' universe. If that makes any sense. >_>

I think that it's just because the recent Simpsons episodes take place in a parallel universe. Actually, that would explain a lot...

Maybe on the simpsons occasional visions of the distant future, Homer is walking around in a Futuristic city and bumps into Fry or some other Futurama character and he/she gets a short little line like, "Watch it, bub."
