After the Springfieldians have buried a time capsule a freak storm brings Bender, the robot from 'Futurama' from the future to kill Homer but he befriends him instead. Other Futurama characters then appear and point out that they must kill Bart because, due to the time capsule, he has given rise to mutant rabbits which will destroy New New York. The answer is for the Simpsons to go into the future and round up the mutants and send them into space.

Matt Groening has specifically said that in the world of The Simpsons that Futurama is a TV show set in the future. In the world of Futurama The Simpsons is a 1,000 year old TV show. This was displayed in the Futurama episode a "A Big Ball of Garbage" when Fry and Bender come upon a pile of old Bart Simpsons Dolls.
This was addressed in their first crossover "The Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis" Comic Book by referring back to the Futurama Episode "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid" we see that the Brain Spawn can transport people into the world of a book. But in this episode it is completely disregarded and assumed that The Simpsons and Futurama inhabit the same universe/timeline. See more
