"The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" animated characters will meet on small screen for the first time next season in a special crossover episode set to air on Fox in the fall of 2014.

The encounter will occur on an episode of Seth MacFarlane's "Family Guy," however Homer and his family of yellow-tinted misfits will have homefield advantage, The Wrap reports.

"Fox hasn’t spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight t-shirt shopping," said "Family Guy" patriarch Peter Griffin in a statement from Fox.

In the same release, Homer Simpson added, "Finally I can get my hands on this guy!"

In what is being referred to as "The Simpsons Guy" episode, the Griffins somehow wind up in the town of Springfield where they are greet by Homer Simpson who refers to them as his new "albino" friends, The Wrap notes.

The two animated families reportedly hit it off and bond throughout the episode, as each character connects with the character most similar to them on the opposite show.

For example, the Family Guy’s intelligent, mischievous baby Stewie gets along famously with Bart Simpson, relishing in his old-fashioned pranks, while Lisa Simpson attempts to guide the always struggling Meg Griffin, helping her to find something she can excel in, AceShowbiz.com reported.

While the kids play, the adults, if they could be called that, also link up with Marge Simpson and Lois Griffin ditching the housework to bond while Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin debate which beer is best, Springfield’s Duff or Quahog’s Pawtucket brew, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Actors Dan Castellaneta and Julie Kavner will remain the voices of Homer Simpson and Marge Simpson, respectively, while Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson) and Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson) will also be making guest voice appearances on the "Family Guy" episode.

As for the Griffins, "Family Guy" creator, comedian Seth MacFarlane, will remain the voices of Stewie and Peter Griffen, while actresses Mila Kunis and Alex Borstein will continue to be the voices of Meg and Lois Griffin, respectively.
