I really haven't watched The Simpsons since about 2006 due to how bad it got (and one could argue that was already hanging on faaaaaar too long), but this still seems like a new low of some kind. Even if I don't really dig the new episodes anymore, I could still see how the people involved might enjoy making it and still think that they're putting out something good and true to the show, no matter how much I disagree. But this....there's really no way around the fact that this is just a gimmick, of the very type that Groening once very vocally decried (both on his show and on others). I don't think "well, the show has gotten bad anyway..." is necessarily an argument for those involved just letting their previous guard down and do something like this. Matt didn't want to do something that was just an advertisement for another show, or which would compromise either show's universe. So....why's he doing it now? (I guess the answer is probably that someone at Fox moved him....to a BIGGER HOUSE!)

I mean, I don't watch The Simpsons anymore and probably won't ever see this, but it just bums me out. No matter how bad his first show gets, I still like to think that Matt has maintained some integrity. I guess not.

I've seen every Simpsons episode to date, and though there are a small number of gems in seasons 17-24 (season 23's "The Book Job" probably ranks in my all-time top 20), let's just say that the Scully era is now FAR from the show's lowest point. All I'm saying is, they've been phoning it in for some years now. Most recent interviews indicate Al Jean's main goal at this point is to just break as many "most episodes" records as possible. This crossover is hardly a blow to anyone's integrity in comparison.

And who knows, maybe it's happening because J Stewart Burns has a genuinely good plan? I mean, it's not likely, but still, let's wait 'til we see the damn thing to ponder the reasons behind it.

I also wonder how they're gonna explain the yellow skin everybody has in the Simpsons, and why nobody has it in the Future?
Well, they changed the skin colour for their crossover episode with The Critic. Plus, we've already seen Fry with yellow skin in a couch gag once.

They have "real world" guest stars all the time. I'd imagine that entering the Simpsonverse turns your skin yellow, and that the Futurama cast will be Simpsonized upon entry.

Doubtful. Even though Fry made a cameo in a couch gag where he was yellow, he and Leela both made cameos in a Season 23 episode where they were both pink skinned. "Beware My Cheating Bart".

Guess we already know how Fry will look thanks to that couch gag, and this, Simpsons jaundice:



Zoidberg will really stand out if all the main cast members (other than Hermes) are yellow.

In The Simpsons Game (yes, it's non-canon) Matt Groening draws Bender and Zoidberg and they come out of the drawing to fight you or something, Zoidberg's shell remains red and of course Bender is still foghat grey. Maybe that's just because MG drew Zoidberg that way, or maybe it's an example that Zoidberg's shell won't be Simpsonized.

People are being way too apprehensive about the potential quality of this. Even if it's the worst thing ever made, it doesn't ruin Futurama if IT'S NOT HAPPENING ON FUTURAMA. Nobody's opinion on a show was ever tainted by a bad spin-off (usually because bad spin-offs usually die fast... Hell, this is only being confined to one episode!). It'd be like reading a terrible issue of Futurama Comics and declaring that your favourite show was now ruined.
Second.

I'm sure they have many shades of yellow to use, not to make characters look stupid. It would be funny, if Zoidberg was yellow too. laff (not that funny really...)

Characters being yellow all the time would make sense. Or as much sense as two uncombineable, unreal real-life representations (both concidering each other fictional) do, when combined.

Not quite as weird here. Anyway, Fry and Leela appeared in a recent-ish episode with their normal skin colour, so maybe it'll be the same in this episode.

Well, if that happened, I wouldn't be surprised if the crew retains thier normal skin tones in the Crossover.
Another way we can figure out what the skin tones will be is by looking at the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover. Are the FG characters going to have yellow or normal skin? Whichever way they end up doing it, i'm sure that's how they'll do it for the Futurama characters, too.

Also, does anyone have a link to a clip of their cameo (say, on Youtube or something like that), or at leat know what they did in it?

Except that it will be Family Guy episode, so at least FG-characters will be normal in it.

The news articles about the Family Guy-Simpsons crossover indicate that they plan to directly reference the fact that the characters have different skin pigments and make jokes about it. But since that's being done on Family Guy, rather than on The Simpsons itself, I don't think it really counts. They've shown Simpsons characters as being yellow when they've appeared before (e.g.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GIc_jqz2B0). I think the Family Guy universe is just less stringent in its rules, and thus it makes sense that cartoon characters from other shows would appear without as much "McFarlanization," whereas The Simpsons is a bit stricter hence making Jay Sherman yellow back in '95.

Well Family Guy has flat out said how they're a cartoon on many occasions, so that should be proof enough that their universe isn't that important to them.

Eh. I'm not sure how I feel about a Simpsons / Futurama crossover. Mainly I feel it's unnecessary, as the same ground was covered in the comics. Some other thoughts :

- Simpson-izing the characters isn't something I can see working. Yellow-skinned Fry from the couch gag looks a world away from the Fry we're familiar with, and the thought of a yellow Leela is just . . . blech. It's not a pretty color palette.

- The Simpsons exists in the Futurama-verse as an actual television show. I can think of two examples off the top of my head : the mutant air balloon made of a Bart Simpson Macy's Day Parade float, and the dolls discovered on the asteroid of trash. I'm also pretty sure there was a joke about season 16 being poor. The plot of the comic crossover managed to work around this, but the synopsis for this one seems to put both programs in the same universe.

- I agree with the posters who think the Simpsons has been phoning it in for years now. The news they're also planning a hook-up with Family Guy doesn't exactly fill me with hope for this crossover. I can't stand Family Guy.

Some commentary on the squabbling up-thread :

There's nothing wrong with constructive criticism, tnuk, but constant criticism is bound to get other PEELers backs up. And calling people idiots for enjoying the current run, or snidely asserting they're not "discerning in their tastes" is just rude. Your opinion is just that - your subjective opinion. Posting a graph which shows other people share your opinion does not make it the definitive opinion. Posting "you're wrong" in flashing red text doesn't make it the definitive opinion. Calling everyone who doesn't agree with you stupid and blind definitely doesn't make it the definitive opinion. It just makes you an asshole. And I'm a little sick of you lampshading your responses by claiming to be smarter / more invested in the show / more sarcastic than your opponent.

You think that those who disagree with you are generally wrong, and generally back away from the argument with egg on their face. That's a statement that's a little hard to swallow.

It's impossible for you or your opponent to be "right" in many of your arguments, because they often revolve around your attempts to prove your opinion is fact. You can state your opinion as exhaustively and as eloquently as you like, but that won't transmute it into fact. Your vocabulary alone suggests you're a smart guy, so it baffles me that you persist in this. You make a statement like "the new series was bad" and expect us to bow down to the unimpeachable power of the bold button and accept your opinion as fact. Unfortunately, it's easy to bold things. Anyone can do it! It adds no weight to your argument. If you want to state "the last series was bad" as your opinion, go ahead. But if you insist upon calling it fact, and getting snotty about everyone who doesn't agree, you're going to annoy people. It's poor forum etiquette, to say the least.

When you present your opinions rationally, I quite enjoy reading them. But I don't enjoy disagreeing with you (if merely reminding you your opinion is not fact can be called that  wink ). You think those you argue with have all retreated with "egg on their face" because you were winning the argument. Not true, I'm afraid. In my case, I got sick of your obfuscating text-dumping, and gave up trying to talk to you. It was boredom, and the happy reminder I had better things to do, that led to me abandoning the conversation. I'd wager I'm not the first. Bombarding your opponent with text and breaking out your best vocabulary doesn't make you right, it just makes you obnoxious - the metaphorical kid in the sandbox, screaming "MY CASTLE IS THE BEST!!" so loudly no-one else can be heard. You haven't won the argument, you've just exhausted everyone in range.

Friendly reminder : your opinion is not the word of God.

"Yeah, some people still really enjoy it. That's fine. They're allowed to. But I'm allowed by the same token to point out that this means they're about as discerning in their tastes as a hobo rummaging through a dumpster for his dinner."  -  roll eyes No, you're not. You're allowed to say you don't enjoy it, but that doesn't give you carte blanche to insult everyone who does.

Your inability to respect a different opinion is just absurd now. As is your assumption that all praise for the new run is "blind". It isn't and you know it. There's a healthy mix of praise and concrit on PEEL, often within the same post. Just because posters praise things you didn't find praiseworthy, or have the audacity to declare they still love the show, doesn't mean their praise is "blind" or "undiscerning", or that they're witless berks. It just means they've committed the cardinal sin of having ( eek) a different opinion to you. If you can't accept that, a forum is really the wrong place for you, and I suggest you replace PEEL with the sycophantic comfort of a mirror.

Some commentary on the squabbling up-thread :

Details spoilered for length. Summary at the bottom.

Summary
I am quite capable of accepting that people have different opinions, and respecting their opinion. I do not seek to prove my own opinions as "fact", but to justify their basis; the rationale behind them. I seek to show my working, and to demonstrate the validity of my opinion.

If you disagree, that's your right. You are entitled to do so. However, this will not stop me from justifying what I've said in an attempt to show not only that I do not agree with your opinion, but why I feel that my opinion deserves to be given more weight.

If you have a solid basis for your opinion, and all the actual facts on which it is based are correct, you stand a chance of convincing me that your opinion deserves more weight than mine, but it's something that you'll have to work hard at doing.

I'm aware that the way in which I state many of my opinions presents me as a obnoxious, arrogant, insufferable know-it-all and an arsehole. You're allowed to hold that opinion of me.

I'm done with this thread. I've given my opinion on the upcoming crossover, and I've been slated for doing so. I've responded to said slating, and I've been slated for doing so. I'm likely to be slated for this response, and... I just don't care anymore. Have at it. Feel free to air your wildest and most unsubstantiated opinions of me, and your opinions of what my opinions of my own opinions must be. I won't be seeing them.

My main concern is... uhhh, isn't The Simpsons still supposed to be set in reality to a certain extent? Granted, they've done some crazy/stupid shit over the years, but having a legitimate epiosde with a plot about a time-travelling robot is way too far over the line for my liking.
I think that went out the window when they went full sci-fi recently with a parody of Inception where Professor Frink let the family use a machine to go inside Homer's dreams.

No one puts Futurama in the corner, not even Comedy Central.

While Fry and the gang were recently sent to that great spaceship landfill in the sky (also known as cancellation) for a second time earlier this year, it was announced at Comic-Con that Futurama and The Simpsons‘ creator Matt Groening will bring his two iconic animated worlds together for a crossover episode.

EW revealed the episode is being recorded this August, and will air either as The Simpsons‘ season 25 finale in May 2014 or as the season 26 premiere. The plot will involve robot Bender coming back from the future to kill Bart and stop him from screwing up the future for everyone else. Futurama cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Phil LaMarr and Maurice LaMarche will all be heard in the episode.

This is the second crossover episode of The Simpsons announced it recent weeks. The family will also meet up with The Family Guy crew in 2014

Futurama‘s final season is set to conclude this September on Comedy Central, while The Simpsons season 25 premiere is scheduled to air Sunday, September 28th at 8/7c on Fox.

Some more, but I don't get it... The mention the season finally of The Simpsons in may and september, weird.

I started it by saying 'dude' because I couldn't think of a gender neutral word to go in the sentence instead - save 'person'. I tend to use 'dude' and 'girl' interchangably for any gender, because language is pretty limited when it comes to these things. I definately didn't go for 'dude' because of their compelling arguement and sparkling eloquence, which of course knows no gender.

I had the opposite impression and assumed TSSI is a woman because of how effectively she/he writes from Leela's perspective in her/his fanfics, which are also incredibly well-written (I know men can also write a woman's point of view amazingly well, but it seems women in general portray a female's POV slightly better).  smile
TSSI, I'm sorry if you don't want your fics mentioned, I can delete what I've written if you'd like me to.

Anyway, sorry to get off the topic of Simpsons/Futurama crossover, I just wanted to mention that briefly.

Funny, it was TSSI's fanfiction writing style that me convinced it was a guy. Leelas POV is very well written, but it seemed to paint her in a slightly overly negative light. It wasn't like "HE'S NOT TYPING ABOUT SHOPPING AND RAINBOWS AND PMS HE MUST BE A BLOKE"

And for the record, as Anna points out, isn't the more common stereotype that women are the more coherent writers?

I never had the notion that Leela was being portrayed in a negative light in TSSI's fics.
Since I have no idea what TSSI's intentions are, I could of course be far off the mark with this, but I found the way she's depicted to be very sympathetic and likable. The way TSSI explores Leela's thought processes so deeply and thoroughly made her actions towards Fry seem quite understandable to me and actually made me like her character even more than I already did.

Also, I didn't mean to say that women are typically more coherent writers; I just meant that I think women may have an advantage when it comes to effectively conveying a female's POV. smile

I guess that's where our takes on the character representations differ smile. Again, I don't think Leela is unlikeable by any means, it just seems that many of her more negative traits are being exacerbated somewhat, most of those complaints coming from male fans. Just how I saw it.

Anyway, that's enough off-topicity.

I feel like TSSI's writing portrays Leela in a more positive light, considering TSSI's fanfic," Walking A Fine Line." Leela is portrayed as torn and confused. Not negative.

Wait...oh I guess I have to say something about the crossover now......

Yeah, how are they gonna play out the crossover? I mean there is a 1,000 year difference, plus the Simpsons is AU, so this could either be really good or a giant disaster.

I'm aware of this (and the other times Matt's said it in various other sources; though again, The Simpsons writers have not stuck to this rule and therefore this can be taken with a grain of salt). I meant "set in reality" as in "keeping itself grounded and NOT doing things like time travel."

No, Futurama's finale is in September, The Simpsons' finale is in May. The Simpsons generally starts each new season during September/October, wheras Futurama has been having June-September runs since its move to Comedy Central.

^Yeah, I think what that part of the article meant is that that episode MIGHT air as the season finale in May next year, but could potentially be held over to season premiere status the following Fall. Usually, the first several episodes of any given Simpsons season are holdovers from the previous production run. (The Simpsons now has so many holdovers going into the next seasons that The Simpsons has a guaranteed short 26th season, even if Fox doesn't actually formally renew it for season 26. Which, there is some speculation that they might be thinking of not doing, given the news about them selling the show to cable syndication.)

As far as the "Futurama is real" thing, I think that was always in part just to firmly establish that the two are in different universes (and therefore can't crossover, since Matt was insistent on never doing that....OOPS), but also to justify having Futurama maintain more consistency in its universe in comparison to The Simpsons, which is much looser with continuity and universe-building.

My guess on the big upcoming crossover...

My hope is Nibbler reveals to Fry, Leela and Bender that they are destined to kill the ULTIMAT EVIL (Bart Simpson) to save all the multiverses (everything in existence ever). Something terrible Bart does in (his) future destroys every reality ever.
And that this was Fry and Leela's ultimate destiny. As they are the chosen two, and the true reason Nibbler had to freeze Fry and bring him together with Leela.
But then Bender is sent through the multiverse itself to kill Bart by the Nibblonians b/c they are in rush to get the job done (using all of their third eyes to do so, b/c this was their secret power, to multiverse jump, and no they still can't travel back in time, as a nod to what Nibbler had said before). Being a robot Bender can survive the round trip, and off he goes.
But something happens involving the globetrotters and Prof. that proves Fry and Leela must go to Springfield and save Bart from Bender and get him to change his ways if they actually want to save the multiverse.
Thus leading to the big crossover.

And don't forget Homer as some big joke about knowing all along a Simpson would destroy everything ever in the entire multiverse.

J. Stewart Burns, writer of such episodes as Roswell That Ends Well, The Cryonic Woman, and Neutopia, with the rest of the current Simpsons writing team on it as well.

Hopefully he can write it well seeing as he did write on the Simpsons Holidays of Future Passed and Moes Baby Blues, but he has written pretty bad episodes as well (D'ohcial Network, What Animated Women Want), plus it isn't being looked over by anyone from the regular Futurama writing team, so it could honestly go either way.
