The long-awaited crossover special between The Simpsons and Family Guy won’t be airing for another two months, but today we’ve been treated to an extended preview of the upcoming mash-up episode. Debuted at Comic-Con over the weekend, the five-minute teaser features Bart teaching Stewie how to skateboard and make prank calls, while Homer and Peter bond over beer and donuts, before getting into an all-out brawl, naturally. Cleveland and Bob from Bob’s Burgers make cameos in the hour-long (yes, hour-long) episode.

The Simpsons/Family Guy special airs on September 28, right after the season 26 premiere of The Simpsons, in which a main character is expected to be killed off. With a title like “Clown in the Dumps,” it looks like either Krusty the Clown or Sideshow Bob will be meeting their demise. You can watch the trailer for that below, too.

Will Ferrell and his producer partner Adam McKay are taking on an odd new project that is said to be a “live-action/animation hybrid” based on an extremely cheesy ’80s show named Manimal. It’s about a doctor who doubles as a crime fighter by morphing into various animals to save to the day. TV Guide even named it one of the worst show’s of all time. It only lasted 8 episodes but developed a cult following over the years.

In an interview, McKay told Deadline: “I know the movie will be funny and entertaining, but will it be the first film to win a Pulitzer? We’ll just have to see.”

Key & Peele’s Ian Roberts and Jay Martel are on board to write the script but there hasn’t been word if Will will star on the show a well. Stay tuned for more details (via Vulture).
