Simpsons x Family Guy crossover details

Coming this September, Homer vs. Peter, Bart teaches Stewie how to skateboard, and many many laughs.

Via IGN & Zap 2 It come these amazing photos in the gallery above depict The Simpsons in Quahog, Bart and Stewie having a bro moment, and yes, Homer, Peter, and most definitely The Chicken in an all-out brawl. The news is that the episode, originally supposed to be included in a Family Guy 30 minute episode is now going to be a “Simpsons Guy” one-hour special.

Man, I really can’t wait for this. The Simpsons was my favorite cartoon, let alone show, growing up. Family Guy was the perfect cartoon for more adult years and both are still shows I watch every Sunday. I can’t see how this really fails; I’m just going to watch how high I set this bar, ha.


Community x Childish Gambino “Sweatpants”

Don’t be mad cause I’m doin’ me better than you’re doin’ you.

Tonight is a sad night. Why? Because it’s Donald Glover’s last episode on Community. 😦

The talented comedian and actor that you may know as Childish Gambino has found a cult following in his role as Troy Barnes during the past 5 years (and really, the entire cast and show has such a dedicated fanbase that I’m proud to be a part of). We had known Glover was only going to appear in the new season’s first few episodes and tonight’s all-new one is being promoted as the Troy Barnes farewell.

To appropriately commemorate the occasion, this new mix video (that went viral on Reddit, h/t to the homie Brugge once again) blends odd, lovable scenes of Troy and the Community cast with Childish Gambino’s “Sweatpants”. As the video gets going, you’ll see just how many weird moments match up perfectly with some of the weird references and lyrics from Gambino. It’s so enjoyably synched that I’m going to watch it again and run back “Sweatpants” even more with Because The Internet still steady in my rotation.

I’ll be tuned in tonight. Community won’t be the same, but the entire ensemble is great and the writers are so clever that we’ll still be in good hands. Endings are assuredly sad, but there’s always the good that comes with it. Glover is rising as Childish Gambino, and is slated to produce his own show on FX. No doubt the future is bright for Donald! …Cool cool cool.







Boyz II Men on HIMYM

On last night’s How I Met Your Mother, we saw about as unexpected of a cameo as you can get: Boyz II Men!

The context: the newest, epic chapter in the series-long “Slap Bet” episodes as Marshall (Jason Segal) owes Barney (Neil Patrick-Harris) another slap (with one final one now remaining). The episode culminates with this 1 minute 30 second rendition of “You Just Got Slapped” — a song where Jason Segal tapped into his Forgetting Sarah Marshall Dracula musical a few years ago for equally hilarious results.

Now, Boyz II Men serenades the ridiculous lyrics of the song for a remix, as the cast acts as background dancers (nice touch) with Barney sitting solemnly post-slap. I’m a fan of HIMYM, and a fan of Boyz II Men, so for me, I thoroughly enjoyed this.
