Hopefully Springfield is all stocked up on beer and donuts.
The Griffins and the Simpsons will finally meet face to face in fall 2014, in a special crossover episode of the two Fox "Animation Domination" cartoons. While Homer, Marge and the gang will have homefield advantage, the crossover will occur on an episode of Seth MacFarlane's "Family Guy."
"Fox hasn't spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight t-shirt shopping," said "Family Guy" patriarch Peter Griffin in a statement from Fox.
"Finally I can get my hands on this guy!" added Homer Simpson.

In "The Simpsons Guy" episode of "Family Guy," Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins 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.
"Family Guy" is entering its 11th season. "The Simpsons" is the longest-running scripted show in television history, currently in its 25th season.
