Exclusive: 'Bones' plots 'Family Guy' crossover! - Featured

Suddenly, the cancer-induced ghost sex Izzie was partaking in on Grey's Anatomy isn't looking so preposterous.


As I previously reported, David Boreanaz' Bones alter ego will suffer a life-threatening health crisis this May that will cause him to hallucinate. Well, I can finally reveal the destination of his head trip: Quahog, Rhode Island. Put another way, Booth is getting a visit from Family Guy's acid-tongued baby villain, Stewie!


No joke!


"This is going to sound odd, but it is a completely believable event given [Booth's condition]," maintains executive producer Stephen Nathan, who declined to reveal the mystery ailment causing his visions. "It's not just a fantasy of ours. There's medical research to back up what's going on with Booth. There are conditions where you can see cartoon characters."


But don't expect to see Emily Deschanel's Brennan sparring with the evil tot: The cartoon cameo will be limited to Boreanaz. "We were never going to have Stewie just walk into the lab and start talking to everybody -- that would be a bald and shameless crossover," Nathan adds with a laugh. "It was always conceived to be a realistic hallucination... one that would lead us to what we wanted to do with Booth and Brennan."


In case you've been living under a rock without Wi-Fi, what they want to do is get the two detectives in bed having sex in the May 14 season finale -- an event Nathan assures me will "not be a hallucination." But first, Brennan will ask Booth to father her child on May 7, a request that leads to Stewie's first of two appearances. "Stewie will be in the sperm donation room with Booth," explains Nathan, who says Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will sign off on all of Stewie's dialogue. "Whatever Seth wants to do is fine. As far as I'm concerned Stewie can sing!"


What do you think? Is this crossover too silly even for Bones? Or do you have faith that the ends (Booth's diagnosis on May 7) will justify the means (Stewie!) Sound off below!

It seems to fit Booth's personality. Makes sense that someone would hallucinate something they are familiar with.

Woah woah woah...sperm donation? This is the first I've heard of him actually donating. Is this just a joke? I wanna know!
And I can't wait for Stewie. This is gonna be so great. I can't wait to see what they managed to come up with.

I really think they need to stop letting DB in on the directing/producing/etc. The last few eps his character has been behaving like kind of an a$$ -- strippers, cars, attitude much? I feel ED's character has been rather lacking dimension lately also, as well as flip flopping to ridiculous extremes of 'personality'. As far as Booth hallucinating, well, can we say xmas ep season 1? Seems within character, as well as within the show's 'limits' (angela's spirit guide, etc) I think they will find a way to work that in in an amusing way. My big concern is with the fact that a family man with morals and religion and such (who we all hope will realize that the stupid 'line' he drew in regards to a certain anthropologist needs to be obliterated) will be going to a SPERM BANK to create an un-love-child with his work-obsessed partner who likely wants a child as nothing more than a scientific experiment. I mean really, can any of you actually see Bones as a mom working with the basis of this show? Does anyone else think the writers need to go re-watch the first seasons and get back to the characters we fell in love with? I hope this is all a biiiiiig April fools. Why is it that most of the good dramas panic and decide they need to stick a baby in there somewhere to make it work? It NEVER works!!!! Sorry. Rant done. ;)

I actually like the idea of bones having a baby although I do think I'd prefer Angela but the baby craze has been developing over the last two seasons and in baby in the bough we saw how much Temperance is capable of caring I thing that bones will make a good mom

I wrote in a review a while ago how Crazy hallucinations have been used in tv series to draw in dwindling numbers... how crazyness and general oddness in plot tends to herald the end of a beloved programme... in this latest season which has been so hard to follow due to defragmentation and president Obama apparantly, we have already seen 2 hallucinations (the hockey player and the dead soldier) and now with the introduction of Stewie(don't get me wrong I adore him) I'm worried.... also if they're going to have sex at the end of this season then I fear my ""Moonlighting"" hypothesis may be proved... I hope it will be disproved. But I fear we could be coming to the end of a beautiful partnership.
