‘Family Guy’ Crossover Event With ‘The Simpsons’: Meg Griffin & Lisa Simpson Butt Heads
Family Guy and The Simpsons collide for the animated crossover event of the season, but it’s not all fun and games. (Okay, it is, but a girl fight is part of the fun.)
Yeardley Smith, the voice actress behind Lisa Simpson, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what to expect when the two sisters cross paths.
“I don’t know what happens to the other characters, but I know what happens with me and Meg,” Yeardley, 50, exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com. “We try to figure out what Meg is good at, which you know isn’t very much, but it turns out it’s the saxophone, and Lisa Simpson is having none of that. She’s not going to take it laying down.”
Ouch! Saxophone fight! As for the other characters, you can expect laugh-out-loud jokes, and the usual…donuts.
Peter Griffin & Homer Simpson Hang Out In ‘The Simpsons’ & ‘Family Guy’ Crossover
As seen in this 5-minute teaser, which was revealed at Comic-Con, Peter Griffin says that the entire town looks like they have hepatitis, while Homer greets the “albino” Griffin family with donuts. It’s a match made in heaven! (Until the dads fight at a bar. Typical.)
Meanwhile, Stewie and Bart make prank phone calls on the hour-long Family Guy premiere (Sunday, Sept. 28, 9/8c on Fox, right after The Simpsons Season 26 premiere.)
The Simpsons showrunner Al Jean told HollywoodLife.com that he’s seen the full episode and he loved it. “I don’t want to reveal the jokes in it – but I thought it was actually sweet, and it made me laugh multiple, multiple times, so I’m glad it exists,” he said. “If they sold a DVD of it, I’d buy it.”
