In episode 66 of Toon Talk Weekly, Brad and Jake talk about the weird world of cartoon crossovers and dive into the recent Family Guy and The Simpsons crossover special, “The Simpsons Guy.”
While “The Simpsons Guy" is technically listed as an episode of Family Guy, it felt right to keep this episode focused on the special and not either series respectively. It’s hard to believe that Family Guy and The Simpsons even ever got to this point in their storied histories, but alas, here we find ourselves.
This episode has everything a fan of either show can expect to see in this special mashup. The iconic moments from each series make an appearance as well as many of the characters you’ve come to love over the years.
The idea of this crossover may seem like a no-brainer in terms of marketing, but after watching the episode several times, there is definitely more that could have been done to make it even better. That said, after our discussion on the topic, we feel like maybe there was more to this than just a single viewing can provide.
