It appears that David Duchovny used to hound the writers of "The X-Files" to create an episode featuring animated characters from "The Simpsons".
The actor and his co-star Gillian Anderson loaned their voices to the cartoon series for an X-Files-themed episode entitled "The Springfield Files" in 1997. The episode, in which FBI agents, Mulder and Scully, travel to Springfield to investigate Homer's reports of seeing a strange glowing alien in the woods after consuming large amounts of "Red Tick Bear", became an instant classic.
Duchovny is convinced that writers on the sci fi show should have reciprocated and given the Simpson family a cameo role on the live-action series.
He says, "The Simpsons should have come on our show. I had an idea around the seventh or eighth year and thought we should try a (1988 movie) Roger Rabbit-style episode, where they crossed real folk and animation.
"We could do Homer comes to the FBI and deals with cartoon characters. I still feel it's a good idea."
Maybe Duchovny was on to something?
