Death by Snu-Snu: Futurama to Get Mashed Together With The Simpsons for a Crossover Episode Send-Off

But who will play the Great Gazoo!?



Oh no, Futurama is over! But it’s back! But it’s over! But it’s back! Yes, Futurama is coming back one last time (again) for a Simpsons crossover of Flintstones/Jetsons proportions. It’s also going to get a little more crowded in Springfield during the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover, as it’ll serve up a delicious cameo of the week from Bob’s Burgers.

It wouldn’t be Futurama without the original voice cast, and The Wrap says Futurama voice actors will resume the roles appointed by their fate assignment officers. The episode will feature Billy West (Fry), John DiMaggio (Bender), Katey Sagal (Leela),  Phil LaMarr (Hermes), Lauren Tom (Amy), and future news anchors Tress MacNeille (Linda) and Maurice LaMarche (Morbo).

The Simpsons crossover episode will air in November of this year, though there are no details on whether the Futurama cast is coming to join us in 2014 or if the Simpsons are going to the future.

We do know that Bob of Bob’s Burgers will be crashing the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover episode, so now we’ll have a canonical shared universe for some of the best animated shows on television. I’m 90% sure this part of some plan for Fox to find a new way for their shows to get canceled but never have to actually end.

Oh! You know, I think I’ve got a solution to this cartoon universe’s lack of a Great Gazoo:


Eh? Eh?
