Family Guy, The Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers Crossover: Watch the clip

Peter Griffin does his best not to hear about Lois’ dream.

What’s the biggest TV event on March 12? Some say it’s the Oscars, while others may be referring to the season finale of “The Last of Us.” But Fox wants to give them both a run for their money with the latest episode of “Family Guy,” in which the smash-hit animated program features a three-way crossover with its Fox channel siblings, “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers.”

“Family Guy” previously crossed over with “The Simpsons” in 2014 during the show’s 13th season premiere, “The Simpsons Guy,” but this is the first time the two shows’ younger Fox sibling, “Bob’s Burgers,” has been added to the for mixture. . However, unlike “The Simpsons Guy” — an extra-long 44-minute extravaganza for the two rival shows — the upcoming episode (titled “Adoption”) doesn’t appear to focus on the interplay between the three shows, instead featuring characters from “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers” in a scene released as a clip by Fox ahead of the broadcast. According to Fox’s episode description, the rest of Adoption will focus on Lois’ father Carter (MacFarlane), who adopted a young girl from an orphanage to save his reputation, making Lois jealous.

In the released clip, Peter (Seth MacFarlane), receiving an earful from his wife Lois (Alex Borstein), slowly backs out of their house to end up at the titular “Bob’s Burger” restaurant. There’s also Bob Belcher (H. Jon Benjamin, who makes a cameo as a singer) who runs the diner himself, and Homer Simpson (Dan Castellaneta, who doesn’t lend his voice to the scene) eating a hamburger. “I’ve been backing away from the show before us,” Peter says before sitting down.

“Why are there two sets of prices,” he asks Bob, who replies, “One is the Emmy discount.” “Ahh,” Peter — whose show is the only one of the three not to win Outstanding Animated Program at the Emmys — says dejectedly before ordering black coffee and toast.

The scene brings together three of the four shows in Fox’s long-running Sunday night Animation Domination block — the fourth, “The Great North,” premiered in 2021. And all three shows have had serious staying power for Fox: “The Simpsons” ran for an astounding 34 seasons since 1989 and was renewed for 800 episodes in 2025, “Family Guy” is in its 21st season, while “Bob’s Burgers” is still season 13 only. Last January, all three shows were renewed for two seasons. Both “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers” spawned feature films, with “The Simpsons Movie” hitting screens in 2007 and “The Bob’s Burgers Movie” debuting just last year.

“Family Guy” airs Sundays at 9:30 p.m. on Fox. Check out the first look from the episode below.
