I've seen every episode so far, most of 'em only once tho.   hmpf

Was wondering if anyone's ever seen those lovable aliens from The Simpsons pop up on Futurama...

Don't think so - actually, I'm almost certain they don't show up.

Yeah, but only because it was a Crossover comic!
Also Futurama has enough weird aliens already, they simply have no need for some Simpsons Aliens...

maby simpsons are considered considered fiction to the futurama people. remember in "a big piece of garbage" when bender picked up a bart simpson doll on the garbage ball.

I believe I've seen animals that resemble Kang & Kodos. In one or two episodes I've seen (usually a trio I think) blobbish-like aliens that resemble Kang & Kodos but are missing the helmets and some other things. Anyway, I would know. I'm an expert at whatever Kang & Kodos are. Okay, all I really know is how you can determine which one is a boy or girl by just looking at them (Hint: It has to do with a part of their eye).

That is almost exactly what they said on the commentaries (or something), that The Simpsons is a fictional show from the past, they don't want to be bringing in Simpsons characters etc to the show.

hehe yeah, David X. Cohen said that in the commentary.

something along the lines of "The Simpsons are fictional characters, while Futurama is real. (snicker)"

What!? ::throws his 52864 points into the gutter::

Matt once jokingly sugested the Simpsons would still be on the air in the year 3000. Fans generally agree the last 500 years is no where near as good as the first 500 years.

I dunno, would one eyed aliens really work on Futurama?

Yes, I know Leela's a mutant.  It was a JOKE!  I was trying to bring a ray of sunshine into your otherwise grey lives!  But no, you had to be all smartarse and Cuberty and point out the flaw in my joke.  That's it!  Screw you!  Screw all of you!  This stinks!  This is total BS!  I quit!  (slams door)

As said by Zozer they haven't popped up beacuse they are fictional for the Futurama people to.

I think that HG Blob is similar to Kang and Kodos.  Maybe that was the inspiration for HG Blob.

I recall a Simpsons episode where Bart is about to vandalise unset concrete, we see a dream where in the future a guide tells a tour about the meaning of the words 'bart' they use a ray gun on minute traces of DNA to resurrect bart, he flings a yo yo and they make him their god.

I was always hoping to see Burns and Smithers in Futurama in head jars.
Not sure why.

Also, it doesn't matter if there have been Bart Simpson dolls or Homer Simpson T-Shirts around as Bart became famous in an episode for his line "I didn't do it", Homer was a popular freak, Marge was a wanted criminal, Maggie shot a rich powerful man and Lisa... did something I'm sure.

They've all had their moments.

I had heard something similar to the theory that The Simpsons is a cartoon from the past in Futurama. I thought I'd read it in an interview with Matt Groening. If we need any further evidence that the Simpsons are fictional, just look at their skin colour - They're yellow, dagnabbit!

However, wouldn't it be freaky if Futurama was a cartoon watched by the Simpsons?! It'd be like that chinese guy in the old fable - A butterfly dreaming he's a man, or a man who dreamt he was a butterfly?

Or like that excellent episode of DS9, "Far Beyond the Stars" (and the equally good novelization by the same name). Is the future experienced by Ben Sisko real and he's merely plauged by odd visions, or is his relaity really just the writings of a seemingly insane 40's era sciene-fiction writer from Harlem?

Then Jeremy and LAN get stuck in a floating all-girls Catholic school and have to pretend to be gay janitors!

I can't be bothered reading this whole thread, but why would Kang and Kodos appear, as The Simpsons is fictional in Futurama?

I know it was probably said up a bit.

Journalism is fictionier than fiction.
And it is non-fiction that truth is fairly "out-there"
Bart can hallucinate what he likes; he's fictional! But is no one going to say "What about Disco Stu?"
Disco Stu is of course real. I used to share a house with him (not in the biblical sense, you understand) and he is being lampooned in The Simpsons.
However, being real he can still have his head cryogenically frozen (as if you can do anything else cryogenically!) to be revived as a disembodied head in a thousand years, and while this is stranger than fiction it is not entirely truth.

The "Real Kramer" had a bus tour (which was parodied on Seinfeld). So, the "Real Kramer" and the actor who played Cosmo Kramer could both be heads in jars, but Cosmo Kramer could not. Matt and Trey could be heads in jars, but Stan and Kyle could not. And so on.

In the same way, the "Real Disco Stu" could be a head in a jar (famous for being "the guy they based that character in that famous 20th century cartoon on" ), but Disco Stu could not.
