FOX has released the opening couch gag and clip for this weekend's Simpsons and Futurama crossover episode called "Simpsorama," which will send the Simpsons to the 31st century. The episode follows a "Terminator-esque story that involves Bart blowing his nose on a sandwich that he places in a time capsule. When that mixes with Milhouse’s rabbit’s foot and some radioactive ooze, it creates a global catastrophe in the future, prompting Bender to travel back in time to kill Bart and prevent this mega-mess." The episode also has a great tagline that reads, "A show out of ideas teams up with a show out of episodes."
This is going to be quite the epic event for fans of both series. It will definitely be good to see the return of the characters from Futurama. The episode will also reunite the Futurama voice cast of Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice LaMarche.
The episode is set to premiere on November 9th, and the couch gag they came up with for it is quite humorous.
