Your Next Simpsons Crossover Episode Is With Futurama

pretty much every character who ever appeared in futuramaAnnounced at this afternoon’s Comic-Panel for all things four-fingered with the patented Groening overbite, there’s to be a crossover episode mashing up The Simpsons and Futurama.

The voice recording session will take place next month and the episode should air as either the last episode of this season of the Simpsons or the first episode of the next. Either way, this will be after Futurama has taken its final bow.

Consider it an epilogue, maybe. Or perhaps this will be the real final chapter. I can see how that might work – at least until Futurama gets resurrected again. Please?

You know, it seems like Springfield’s borders are getting less and less secure. It’s just a few days since we heard about plans for a Simpsons and Family Guy crossover.

Of the two, I’m happier about the Futurama tie-up, for sure, but these episodes so rarely come off, and even when they do, they’ve often felt quite compromised to me.
