The fun thing with the Simpsons and Futurama is that the creators are 
quite savvy on many research topics*. Parabiosis is *way* older; Paul 
Bert got a prize for it 1866.

While much interest is in some of the proteins being exchanged, I 
suspect the biggest effect is correcting homeostasis. We'll see.

* The Futurama mind-switching theorem
is another cool example.

Mr. Burns becomes ill with hypohemia and needs a transfusion, but has the super-rare fictional type double O negative.  Bart is the only person in Springfield with double O negative.  The transfusion not only saves Burns' life but he feels wonderful, youthful again.  Chaos ensues.
