Actually, I posted it because in Simpsons he said "keep this train wreck moving," and in Futurama they kept the train wreck moving. It's a stretch, but as soon as i heard the line I remembered the ep and figured i'd post it.

That is one heckuva stretch... I mean the simpsons had a whole episode devoted to a train wreck (Monorail, anyone?) that wouldve been a much better corelation, atleast there were actual train wrecks in both.

Look, its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshoppper buried acorns for the winter while the Octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV, then the winter came and the grasshopper died. The octopus ate all the acorns, and also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you? Now go, go gather your nuts you nagging grasshopper.

The Simpsons and Futurama both contain lots of 2001:
references, like in the ep where Homer eats the crisps in the space shuttle (just before breaking the ant colony), and Futurama, Love and Rocket (Fry eating the Valentine candy).

In "War Is The H-Word" Fry talk about how he have to knock down the guards, and steal the chopper. While he talk Leela do all that, and Fry react by saying "hey, that's not me!"

In "A Tale Of Two Springfields" Homer wait for the telephone to ring (with The Who tiackets), but thanks to the new area codes it's Monty Burns who answer the phone, Homer's reaction: "Wait, that's not me."

Though I don't think it's plagiarising, just a freak coincident, as ATOTS aired November 5th 2000, while WISTH aired November 26th 2000, and both were holdovers from the previous production season.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Homer's Odyssey  [7G03]
Mr. Burns' sign in the front of his house:
"VISITORS WILL BE SHOT"

A Tale of Two Santas [3ACV03]
The roof of the docking bay of PE-
"TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT"

Also, both these episodes are the THIRD of the production season, and they contain singing (Marge + The Punch/Wine, The Elves Song). Anybody else notice these?

Futurama, Space Pilot 3000, Bender: "Well, that solves the mystery of the missing ring."

Simpsons, Moe Baby Blues, Homer: "Well, that solves the mystery of the missing ham."

Same with Rosebud, one of Burns' signs says 'Trespassers will be shot'

Ok       the simpsons have been around forever every tv show copies their jokes, south park, malcom in the middle, even the osbournes.

and they have the same jokes because both shows are created by the same person. So why are you guys complaning!

The shows are allowed to copy each other.

The line "I don't like you and you don't like me..." "I like you!"  was used on both shows, though I can't remember which came first... and I'm not complaining, I got a kick out of it.

A phrase that has been used on Simpsons "Its like there's a party in my mouth, and everyone's invited!" (The first time was on "Homer At The Bat", and I think it was used again on "Flaming Moes" ) was used on the episode "Parasite's Lost", but I think it is more of a parody of the joke on the Simpsons. Fry says "Its like there's a party in my mouth, and everyone's throwing up" (when he eats the egg salad sandwich). Made me smile when I heard it.

Basically the same joke, don't think it's been posted:

Futurama, season 1 - "My Three Suns"
Bender: Now, I don't like you, and you don't like me...
Leela: I like you!
Bender: You do..?!

The Simpsons, season 9 (?) - "Simpson Tide"
Naval officer: Simpson, I don't like you, and you don't like me...
Homer: I like you...

Every time i watch an episode of the simpsons, i notice a direct correlation to a joke in Futurama.  Just, they each have dozens of correlations to jokes in every other show.  I do not support this topic, but i will fight to the death for your right to post in it.

Also in the episode when Moe turns his bar into a trendy night club, I think it's in season 13 (great episode BTW), Moe says to Lisa

"Look, I don't like you and you don't like me...
You dont like me? I like you.

In 'A Tale of Two Springfields,' Mr. Burns says "We're slightly richer!" when they find gold.

In 'Three Hundred Big Boys,' Amy says "I'm slightly richer!" when she gets the $300.

Yes, that is very true, BUT since they do it in GARBAGE, it BECOMES a joke and therefore, since it is in both shows, we say it's reused, get it?

In simpsons, where Homer was helping Burns to play some bad jokes, something like:
This guy impressed me greatly, and I am not so easily impressed... Look! A blue car!

This joke has been used THRICE then, because it is also in "Fear of Flying"...
Homer (after Guy Incognito has been kicked out of Moe's): That guy is my exact double! Oh look, that dog has a puffy tail. Here Puff!! Here Puff!! (May not be exact, but the point gets through, right?)

How about "The Lesser of Two Evils" and that one episode (I think it was a Treehouse of Horror) where Bart turned out to be the Evil Bart? I think that's how it went... it's been a while. At any rate, both the episodes use the joke that the new 'twin' of the character is actually the good one and the original is evil.

BUMPITY BUMP BUMP

I noticed today on Simpsons that Homer sings the Convoy song from the beginning of Parasites Lost...  It was in the episode where Bart falls down the well so it obviously predates the Futurama reference...

The caption for the intro to Anthology of Interest 1 is "painstakingly drawn before a live audience." I believe a joke about 'live cartoons' was also made in the Simpsons, maybe in the 138th Epsiode Spectacular.

No, it was made in the Itchy, Scratchy & Poochie Show episode.

HOMER: Is this live?
PERSON WHO DOES ITCHY & SCRATCHY'S VOICE: Very few cartoons are done live, Homer. It's a terrible strain on the animator's wrists. (or something along the lines of that)

There was also an episode that started with a narrator saying "The Simpsons is filmed before a live studio audience."  Then it breaks into a short All in the Family parody.

Hmmmm. The "Convoy Song"... There's something I wouldn't call a joke since it's an actual (and well-known) song. It just fits the scene. Maybe the song is humorous in context, but just the fact that the same song is used for different things doesn't make the different things the same.. although that WOULD open up some interesting possibilities... Hmmmm- an idea starts to take form...
...no, lost it!

Both are references to 2001: A something something. (Space Odyssey or something to that effect)
