I normally wouldn't like the Simpsons to get killed, but if they do THAT is the way to go about it. Wow, a totally ballsy ending. I just know the producers would never go for it.

Interesting idea, though for myself, I'm of the "they live on seperate Earths" school of thought---unless the Simpsons statue crossed dimensional boundaries into Futurama's universe somehow...
My guesses as to how the show will probably end:
1. The whole town is blown up/ruined in some huge disaster.
2. The Simpsons (and possibly the rest of Springfield) are exiled from the U.S./sent to prison/some such fate, a la "Seinfeld"'s series finale.
3. The whole show is revealed to be a fantasy of Ralph Wiggum/Homer Simpson/Matt Groening/etc., who's shown to be treated for their stupidity/insanity/etc. in a mental hospital somewhere, with the doctors dismissing his fantasies of such a show as existing. Basically, the ending of "St. Elsewhere".
4. Homer is shown waking up in a cold sweat from having a bad "nightmare" about this "awful place where he's an incompetent nuclear safety technician, deals with a bad son", etc., and tells about it to the figure in bed next to him... Mr. Burns. Basically, the ending of "Newhart". (Substitute "Homer and Matt Groening", "Mr. Burns and Smithers", or some other "ha ha, it's funny because they're 'really' gay in the 'real world'" cliche pairing...)
5. One of the endings above, only for us to see the "real" Simpsons family at home (possibly aged in real time since 1990/looking like they did in teh first season/etc.) and/or the staff at Fox dismissing the whole idea of this show as "a dumb way to end a show" or (if the Fox idea is gone with) "a dumb way to end a series/dumb idea for a series"...
6. After a big adventure involving the whole series' cast of characters (maybe a two-part episode), we see the Simpsons family at home, relaxing, discussing the events that happened---which somehow reflect on their relations to each other as a family. They all reaffirm their connectedness with each other, and then sit down to a game of Scrabble---which soon ends with Homer strangling Bart for coming up with a tacky name referring to Homer. Marge, Lisa and Maggie at first start to roll their eyes, but they soon opt to smile slyly instead, contented in knowing that no matter what happens and despite their dysfunctionality, they'll always have/care about each other---even despite stuff like the Bart-strangling going on in front of them. Cue a pull out from the scene to the Simpsons house layout, the exterior of the Simpsons home, and Springfield as a whole... and fade to the end credits (with some softly-played instrumental variation on the Simpsons theme thrown in). Basically, a variation on the first regularly aired episode's (Bart the Genius) opening scenes... or even a reference to the closing scene of the last episode of "Star Trek: TNG".
While something like #6 would be amusing (depending on what the series-ending adventure the bulk of the episode would involve), I suspect/fear it'll just be one of the first five suggestions I listed---some lame references to other TV shows' series finales and a "look it's really a dream/delusion/etc. of Homer/Ralph/etc." ending... meh...
Figures for him, the show ended around 2000 anyway, so it doesn't matter if they go with the lame "gay" joke ending I listed above...
Umm.. ,I Think The Simpsons surd End around The 20th Season/1th and only Movie but miany The Movie,Hears how The Fans and myself what the Movie to be.
1.Makesure The Movie is Done by TMS and not Rough Draft and/or Akom.
2.Makesure Everyone Loves how the movie go's,becuse some people Don't like Newer Simpson episods go.
And 3.Make sure it's Rating PG-13 and Not Rating R in in Movie so more people can Love it.
Thats all I what to say about The Movie.
I think at the final episode, someone needs to die, and the Simpsons move away from Springfield for the final time.
I can't think of any other ending. And I would really like the movie to deal with something huge and series-changing, but I doubt it will. Or like a prequel of sorts. They were always good at doing flashback episodes.
edit: I like the response this got at no-homers
Yeah, that ending is a little too dramatic for my tastes. And "south of the park" is really stretching it.
I like these two possibilities. Basically, I want something that's a subtle nod to the fact that they have been through a lot but basically not much has changed and maybe nothing will.Originally Posted by Brainatra
As long as whatever ends the series is funny and with respect to the characters (and not a big screw you to the viewers), I think it'd be okay.

Supposedly Greoning penned the finale years ago. Meaning that whatever it is, it won't account for Family Guy, etc, etc...
That doesn't seem like a decent ending at all. It's overly dramatic and that's just not fitting.
Hmmm....cartoony plot, tons of pointless guest stars....yep, Mike Scully probably wrote it. I bet this 'idea' was an episode of "The Pitts" rewritten with Groening charcters.Originally Posted by Beatdigga
can't say i like any of those ideas too much.
not that i can come up with any better idea, i mean they have pretty much already done everysingle type of ending on the run of the show already...
I hope that's true. I tend to have hoped that's true for just about every comedy show that gets derailed leading up to its final years. Certainly I know that's what I'd do if I were writing a show.Originally Posted by Beatdigga

Regarding the ending in post 1, there's a 100% chance of something like that never happening. Groening has stated many times that Simpsons is fiction, but Futurama is reality.

Normally I would say that is too dramatic for the Simpsons, but it being the ending, I don't mind it.
