This Week's "Simpsons" Couch Gag Is Disney-Style And It's Amazing
It's pretty magical, tbh.
The couch gags on The Simpsons have become so complex over the years that they're a reason to tune in on their own.
This week, The Simpsons brought in legendary Disney animator Eric Goldberg head up the couch gag, and it's pretty magical:
Goldberg was the lead animator for the Genie in Aladdin, as well as for Phil in Disney's Hercules.
The gag starts out old-school, with Maggie dancing around Steamboat Willie-style.
Lisa gets a pumpkin carriage and her own Cinderella dress.
Marge has a Snow White vibe going, sweeping with her vacuum while Santa's Little Helper does the dishes.
Homer's in there as a Baloo-like bear that really does look exactly like Homer.
And Bart channels a little bit of Yen Sid, zapping the family back to their reality.
It's a treat for anyone who nerds out over Disney animation. Genie approves!
The couch gag (and the rest of the episode) will air this Sunday, April 24 at 8/7c on Fox.
