Watch Homer Simpson visit South Park and Robot Chicken in this new couch gag

The couch gags are getting better and better.

While there’s been some discussion about whether or not the latest seasons of The Simpsons are finally getting their groove back, what everyone can agree on is that the opening couch gags seem to be getting better and better.

They’ve been visited by Rick & Morty, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, and even done their version of the Harlem Shake.

This time the family notice that the famous boat painting that hangs above their couch is missing, and Homer goes off in search of it through a series of classic animations.

Over the years, The Simpsons and South Park have had a few pot-shots at each other, but it’s always been in good jest. We wonder how the guys behind Cartman and Co. will react to Homer asking “Is this a TV show, or did I walk into a third-grade shoe-box diorama?”
