We are getting close to crunch time for The Simpsons/Family Guy one-hour crossover episode, which is rolling with the title The Simpsons Guy (the animators have even created a new logo for the episode, above). The crossover will premiere on Fox on Sunday, September 28 and to celebrate the big premiere, this week Fox released a slew of photos related to the event episode. If you are totally fine with some vague spoilers, take a look at the images, below. If not, it's time to leave this article.
The crossover episode will see the Griffin family happing upon Springfield, which Lois first says “seems nice.” Soon, they meet the Simpson family, and Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin happen to bond over donuts, shown below.

Meanwhile, the kids are all spending time together. Bart and Stewie try skateboarding and Meg and Lisa don’t seem excited about bonding, though the latter is trying. However, my favorite photo is the one of Brian and Santa's Lil' Helper hanging out near the
A lot of this footage is stuff we got to see in the brief The Simpsons trailer that’s already leaked online, but the photos are much crisper and are a great reminder that we’ll get The Simpsons Guy in just a couple of weeks.
