Successful primetime cartoons have a history of taking pot shots at each other, mostly just for fun. South Park made fun of The Simpsons in "The Simpsons Already Did It;" The Simpsons shot back in "Bart of War" when Milhouse and Bart complain about an episode of South Park they're watching; The Simpsons has had more than one go at Family Guy, including a shot of Peter Griffin alongside morbidly obese clones of Homer Simpson in "Treehouse of Horror XIII;" and South Park made Family Guy the main focus of the two-parter "Cartoon Wars" from season 10.
Now a new cartoon will be honored with a quick jab to the face, literally. On tonight's episode of Family Guy, "Space Cadet," Peter and Lois are called into Principal's office, where he shows them the picture Chris tried to pass off as his advanced art project: a picture of Bob Belcher, from Bob's Burgers. Peter says, "I'm very embarrassed." Principal says, "Well, someone should be."
Congratulations for hitting the big time, Bob's Burgers, Loren Bouchard and the rest of the cast and crew!
