Family Guy And Simpsons Crossover - More Details
Special collaboration could be an hour long, Family Guy exec reveals...
Rich Appel, currently a co-executive producer on Family Guy and a former staffer on The Simpsons, leaked more details of the project at Comic Con.
"[The crossover is] gonna be the season premiere in a year, but it's a super-sized episode - it may be an hour episode," Appel explained.
"We were thrilled - [The Simpsons voice actors] Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Hank Azaria, Yeardley Smith, Nancy Cartwright... they all play their parts.
"As soon as Dan opened his mouth with his first Homer line, there was a wave of applause. [And] there may or may not be a 5-minute chicken fight between Peter and Homer!"
Appel revealed that the entire episode had been written by the Family Guy staff, with only "two notes" from Simpsons head honcho Matt Groening and execs Al Jean and James L Brooks.
