One of the greatest animated series of all time pays homage to another cartoon that will undoubtedly also be fondly remembered for decades as The Simpsons recreates Adventure Time for its latest couch gag opening, airing before the first episode of season 28.
What happens when alcoholic mad scientist Rick and his grandson/sidekick Morty invade The Simpsons season finale? Well, first they manage to kill the whole family in the couch gag, meaning that the pair then have to scramble to put the whole lot of them back together.
Here's one way to make you nostalgically love The Simpsons even more: add more nostalgia by recreating the entire opening sequence in pixel animation. Animated by Paul Robertson and Ivan Dixon, this 16-bit pixelated rendition of The Simpsons completely nails it. It should totally be an official couch gag for a future…
The Simpsons rolled out a big holiday intro sequence this week, and as it's now legally required for every media entity showcasing snow, they were forced to make a Frozen reference. The whole thing is adorable.
If you ever wondered what all 25 years of The Simpsons couch gags looks like if they were all played at the same time, well, here you go. This video plays the intro from all 554 episodes from 26 seasons (even that bizarre one we just saw) and I kind of wish I could zoom in on the video to watch them all.
The Simpsons opened its 26th season with this surprisingly bizarre couch gag. Oscar-nominated animator and filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt asked himself what the Simpsons will look like in a very distant future. Well, this is what he came up with:
The Simpsons' couch gags have turned into a showcase for different directors and animators who often turn the opening credits into spectacular short films. We're particularly in love with the sublime strangeness of last night's couch gag, which imagines the animated family some 8,000 years in the future.
I love this Sunday's Simpsons couch gag because it's really dark comedy—like life itself. Take a look.
I would so watch a French version of The Simpsons that makes fun of itself as much as this couch gag. Hopefully, it could be just as beautifully animated as this too. This couch gag was made by French director Sylvain Chomet and it has Homer eating snails, Bart brutally making his own foie gras and a few other French…
C'est magnifique! Sylvain Chomet, director of The Illusionist and Triplets of Belleville, animates the couch gag for this Sunday's episode of The Simpsons. Naturally, it's both beautifully animated and hilarious, poking fun at both the characters and French stereotypes.
When you smash the world of our favorite cartoon family from Springfield with what very well might be our favorite literary fantasy world, well, you get this epic winding tour of The Simpsons traveling through Middle Earth that passes by all your favorite Simpsons characters as Hobbit characters to reach The Comfy…
Tomorrow night's episode of The Simpsons will open with a tasty tribute to Breaking Bad. Of course, it's Marge's baked goods that are the true addictive substance here. And for a change, the key couch doesn't belong to the Simpson family.
