futurama adventure time crossover 'Adventure Time' and 'Futurama' crossover episode coming this week

This week’s “Futurama” episode is going to add a whole lot more credibility to the theory that “Adventure Time” is set in the same universe. The two cartoons are getting an epic crossover episode that is set to air Aug. 7 at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.

The above image, courtesy of the “Futurama” Facebook page, is a sneak peek at what the crossover will look like. It’s worth noting that John DiMaggio voices both Bender and Jake the Dog, so hopefully there will be at least one nod to the fact that the two characters kind of sound like each other. Considering this last season of “Futurama” seems to be going out with a bang, our assumption is that it will likely be even more meta than that.

Meanwhile, a new episode of “Adventure Time” airs tonight on Cartoon Network at 7:30 p.m. ET.
