Every episode of The Simpson’s has a new variation on the couch gag at the beginning. This weekend, Matt Groening‘s crew of animators are taking that gag to J. R. R. Tolkien‘s Middle Earth. What Hobbit characters did The Simpson’s regulars morph into?

The Simpson’s has been on the air since 1989. That’s a long time, long enough that people often joke that the latest Simpson’s episode has been done before…. on The Simpson’s. It’s amazing that the show is still on the air and although I’m not a weekly viewer, I do love the Halloween “Treehouse of Horror” specials and these couch gag reels.

Guillermo del Toro recently did a “Treehouse of Horror” opening that was fantastic.  Check out this Hobbit couch gag tribute in the video below.
