Cartoons on FOX are coming to an end, sort of. It's going to be one exciting season finale Sunday for three of the network's acclaimed animated series. The comedy begins at 8pm with The Simpsons, (then King of the Hill sneaks in with its series finale), followed by Family Guy and finally American Dad.
Tonight's episode of The Simpsons is titled "Coming to Homerica," an obvious parody of the 1988 Eddie Murphy film. Though the series is nearing the end of its 20th season, we won't be surprised if it would return for another run.
The economy of nearby town Ogdenville crumbles, all because of tainted barley found in Krusty's veggie burgers. This causes the unemployed workers to head over to Springfield to search for means of livelihood. Of course, the ever-selfish Mayor Quimby decides to close off the borders of his town instead. He enlists private citizens to help in patrolling, leading Homer to organize his own border patrol group.
Meanwhile, on Family Guy
, Peter discovers an interesting past life of his. The episode "Peter's Progress" follows the patriarch as he has his palm read by a psychic. This reveals that he had a fascinating incarnation in the 17th century - a dignified gentleman who goes by the name Griffin Peterson. At that time in England, Griffin vied for the love of Lady Redbush at the newly founded American colony of Quahog.
Finally, a rowdy evening is the perfect way to wrap up the hilarious hour-and-a-half, as American Dad!
completes Finale Sunday with "Stan's Night Out." Stan decides to leave Francine at home for a night out with the boys. It starts off with a few drinks, but ends recklessly when compromising situations keep getting in the way. Also on the episode, Roger and Hayley try to attract a frat boy using their charm.
