Later this year Peter Griffin will come face-to-face with his inspiration Homer Simpson in a crossover episode that sees the two popular cartoon families meet for the first time.
Now Fox has confirmed the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode – called The Simpsons Guy - it has also released the first two images as well as a synopsis that hints at what we'll see.
Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new "albino" friends with open arms.
The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest voice Nancy Cartwright) and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa (guest voice Yeardley Smith) takes Meg (Mila Kunis) under her wing and is determined to find something – anything – at which she excels; Marge (guest voice Julie Kavner) and Lois (Alex Borstein) ditch housework for a little bonding; and Peter and Homer fight over the best beer in town – Pawtucket vs Duff.
The Simpsons Guy will air in September at the start of America's new television season, as The Simpsons enters its 26th season and Family Guy its 13th.
A look at Homer and Peter's fight can be seen above, the other picture of Stewie and Bart is below.
