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 fully pixellated couch gag from last year is just one example of the creativity that goes into them.

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.


He also helped animate The Emperor's New Groove, Wreck-It Ralph, and tons of other titles, and co-directed the beautifully animated Pocahontas.


The couch gag (and the rest of the episode) will air this Sunday, April 24 at 8/7c on Fox.
