So there's going to be a Family Guy version of The Simpsons: Tapped Out.

How am I not surprised? That's basically all Family Guy knows how to do anymore. Not saying it never copied The Simpsons (It wouldn't exist without such a show!), but it's been using the same jokes and plots, and now money-making tactics for a really long while now.

Simpsons tapped out is a rip off. There was one time I left my city alone for one week and it used up all my donuts. I wasn't even there to use them. Dam you EA gnomes!

Ya, I'm with hojay on this one...those games are total jokes. Beyond the shallow thrill of references to the show, there's no joy to be taken from those games. There's no "gameplay" except either making you wait ludicrous amounts of time or making you pay real money for virtual nothingness. These types of games are an insult to gamers and fans of the show alike.

How many shows does Fox have left in its animation domination block now?

Is it just The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob's Burgers? When was the last time they only had three animated shows running at once?

Yeah, it was clearly Full English, although they never officially made any reference to it spawning from Family Guy. In case you didn't see it, it was absolutely dreadful and I'm pretty sure they yanked it from the schedule after two or three episodes which is a really huge deal given how much money they spent on producing a "high-end" animated show to compete with what American TV gives us.

Some info on the crossover (Bob Belcher has a cameo in this apparently).

The Sept. 28 season premiere of Family Guy, which sends the Griffins to Springfield, will be double-sized. In addition to featuring Homer, his family, and various Springfield residents, Family Guy will include a cameo by Bob from Bob’s Burgers, according to Family Guy executive producer Rich Appel. While the episode was written solely by the Family Guy team, the Simpsons producers and writers were invited to the table read of the script and offered a chance to give input. “We sent them the script, and I think between Jim [Brooks], Matt [Groening] and Al [Jean], they had one or two lines in the hourlong episode they asked to tweak,” said Appel. “They gave us free rein.”

And here's some of the dialogue from the crossover spectacular, courtesy of the talented, college grates from the Family Guy staff.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/20/weve-seen-new-footage-from-the-simpsons-family-guy-crossover


The Griffins walk up to the outskirts Springfield, with Lois asking, “Where are we?”

After they discover it’s a town called Springfield, Stewie asks, “What state?”, with Brian replying, “I can’t imagine we’re allowed to say.”

As they walk into town and see the citizens and begin to notice they look, well, different from the Griffins, Peter warns the family, “Don’t drink the water. Everyone here looks like they have hepatitis.”

Bart skates around the street, showing off his skills. A much more uncertain Stewie than wobbles into frame on a skateboard as well, seemingly wanting to impress Bart, as he tells him, “Oh my god, that was great!” We also see Stewie try to convince Bart he doesn’t wear diapers all the time.

 Lastly, more of the big Peter vs. Homer fight scene was shown, beginning with them growling at each other...

 Peter: “Simpson!”

Homer: “Griffin!”

The two begin comically punching each other, both of them exactly mimicking both the punch itself and their head swinging back for a while. They then begin pummeling each other and rolling around on the street, before Homer finally grabs Peter by his throat and begins to throttle him… at which point Peter freaks out and leaps back.

 Peter: “What the hell? That really hurts!”

Homer: “I do it to my son all the time!”

Peter: “No wonder he’s fat and stupid!”

Homer: “That’s your son!”


...uggghh *shivers on the ground*. That's...bad, bad fanfiction level bad.

How would people feel if Family Guy followed this up with a Futurama crossover? Obviously, it will never happen, but.. what if?

Eh, that preview doesn't sound too awful. Just two famous shows that know they're not very good anymore deciding to piss about. Not Emmy winning stuff, but original.

Yeah, I don't mind the sound of that clip to be honest. Reads more or less as expected, which is that it'll be completely throwaway jokes poking holes in the conventions of The Simpsons.

As for Futurama, it's not like it would be canon; it'd just be a Family Guy celebration of a great show. I'm not saying I'd want it either, but it's not like it would be any worse than "Simpsorama" is going to be. I certainly wouldn't mind it if Family Guy just did a balls to the wall cross-over episode with The Simpsons, Futurama, King of the Hill, American Dad and so forth all rolled into one - kind of like that cold-opening they did where they were all a recurring dream that Hank Hill was having - just for a full episode.

I think it could, and that's kinda scary. If The Simpsons are doing a crossover with post-cancellation Futurama, and Family Guy are doing one with The Simpsons, what's to stop them going after Futurama? Not to mention the fact that Futurama has been referenced many times in Family Guy.

It doesn't seem like Family Guy's style. Family Guy only tends to make a big deal out of very mainstream things (The Simpsons and Star Wars) with the more obscure things being reserved for little throw-away gags and references. I couldn't see any show seeing Futurama as being quite mainstream enough to justify bothering with a full crossover episode, except for The Simpsons which has the obvious Matt Groening connection on its side.

Still, if this episode proves to be insanely successful for them, then maybe they will start pumping out crossovers with everything and anything - though, I think it's far more likely that they'd just produce a sequel to this episode where The Simpsons visit Quahog or a crossover with Bob's Burgers or something.

Or how about a proper crossover with American Dad seeing as that would actually make a bit of sense? I'd actually really like to see that.

It was advertised as an epic crossover between the three shows, but it was actually just a brief scenenear the end of the American Dad episode on the night where all three shows revolved around a hurricane where some of the characters appear.

I've always wondered. Assuming American Dad ends before Family Guy, how would people feel about the Smiths or any other AD! character moving to Quahog and becoming a secondary character? In the case of the Smiths you could explain it by saying they're in witness protection or something. Give them new last names.

Each show did an episode set on the same night in which a storm passed over all of their towns. It wasn't really intended as a crossover so much as a nice little gimmick but in the last minute of the last show (which might have been American Dad; I can't remember) Cleveland and Peter and Stan all had a little stand-off.

Conceptually, it was sort of like the meteor shower episodes of South Park from season three. Three different episodes following three different sets of characters that all take place at roughly the same time with a tiny bit of overlap.

Unless American Dad! somehow gets a lot of love and good ratings on TBS, I don't see it lasting over 2 15 episode Seasons (and depending on how the show will be with Mike Barker gone, I'd be pretty happy with it ending there, just over 200 episodes and the 10 year mark). Family Guy isn't going anywhere for a long time, it's reached the point where it's The Simpsons level of immortality, and will probably live off of merchandise and ratings until they get something else as a hit for Sunday nights, which won't be for many years.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Smiths move to Quohog after their show ends, but I also don't really see the point. Bringing back Cleveland makes sense, since he was already on the show as the 4th member of the group, and his family would add a few plots between him and the Griffins (assuming they do show off the rest of his family in future episodes). The Smiths belong on a separate show and possibly universe from Family Guy, and I'd rather they keep it like that than cheaply make them characters of Macfarlanes other show. A full crossover or 1 time episode I wouldn't mind, but for the rest of the series, no.

As for a Futurama/Family Guy crossover...sure, why not. If they want to show off the characters again on TV and get the cast together, I'm all for it. It'll probably suck, especially if it's just the Family Guy staff free writing it (Simpsorama at least is being done by some people who worked on the show before), but like Simpsons Guy, it's not gonna be a Futurama, but a Family Guy episode, so it won't bother me AS much to see Bender and Peter in a 5 minute long chicken fight, or seeing Professor Farnsworth make a machine that creates big titted robo women for Chris to have sex with.

I'm pretty sure it'll never happen, but meh, I'm not against it (also, I bet 5 bucks that there's gonna be a joke in the Simpsons crossover about Futurama being better/Futurama having to go through more shit than these shows).

That is the problem. Their characters are too developed for them to be relegated to secondary, one-dimensional characters. I think I'd prefer that though, if the other option is not seeing them at all.

I'd love it if they made an American Dad! movie. It's one of few animated sitcoms on the air at the moment that I feel could pull off a theatrical venture well enough to justify it.

So yeah, when the show gets cancelled, I'd like them to make a movie rather than retiring the cast to Quahog.

No fucking way should they move the American Dad characters into the Family Guy universe when it ends. That is a fucking terrible idea. Let them go out with some god damn dignity rather than relegated to supporting characters for the fucking Family Guy writers to play around with.

Having said that though, I would quite like to see an American Dad movie.

Oh yeah, they talked about making a theatrical movie at some point around 2011, one of the ideas for it being around Roger's homeplanet (which was somewhat used for Lost In Space). Not sure how well the chances are for it to happen now, especially with Mike Barker gone.

Going back on topic,

http://www.theprovince.com/entertainment/television/Simpsons+open+season+with+Family+crossover+with/10055627/story.html

“We said, ‘Can you cut just one rape joke?’” Jean recalled, straight-faced. “They said, ‘No,’ and we said, ‘OK.’”

So yeah, expect at least 1 rape joke in this.
