It took a year of work, but Calgary couple Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton have finally put the finishing touches on a real-life Simpsons kitchen.
"When you come to our house you walk into a cartoon kitchen," said Andreychuk. "You could be in the grumpiest mood ever, and unless there’s dishes piled up, that’s the only time when you’re not happy to be in that kitchen."
It looks just like the TV show version — from the corncob curtains, to the green stove, to the purple cabinets.
The little details are there too, like the green utensils and purple toaster.
And that starburst clock.
And the people behind The Simpsons love it, too. Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, tweeted about it back in August.
In fact, they were so impressed that they gave Andreychuk and Hamilton a shoutout in Dec. 13's episode, "Barthood."
Executive Producer Al Jean confirmed on Twitter that it was definitely a shoutout to the couple.
It was a cool moment for Andreychuk, but for Hamilton — a true Simpsons diehard — it was basically the best thing ever.
As for the rest of the house, Andreychuk said they could turn the whole place into the Simpsons' home. But, other than perhaps a tribute to Moe's Tavern in the basement, they're done with the cartoon reno for now.
