The Weirdest Couch Gag in the History of The Simpsons by Animator Don Hertzfeldt

December 24, 2016

The Simpsons recently tapped Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt to animate the opening title couch gag and, well, it’s as weird as you’d expect it to be if you’re familiar with his work. To be honest, it’s not really my thing, but I like how left field it is. The show has been unfunny for so long, can anything save it?

I’ve said it before, I think it would be cool if they allowed different artists to do entire episodes.

Like the episode where they paid tribute to Hayao Miyazaki would have been so much cooler if it was entire episode produced by Studio Ghibli. The best thing they’ve done in recent years was that intro to the show by Banksy.
