Best. Couch Gag. Ever.

With Sunday's re-imagining of The Simpson's opening sequence my thoughts have turned to the oft-changed Simpsons couch gag. Some intrepid (insane? obsessive?) fan has spliced together all of the show's couch gags (at least up to last year) and while they may not have gotten them all, I defy you to tell me what they missed.

The video runs at quadruple time, so they kind of speed by, because other than that the runtime is 19:23, which is almost as long as a regular episode.

For that version, head to Listicles, who alerted me to this gem, and wallow in the overload. And it's a minor quibble, I don't think the video contains over 400 couch gags, as many are repeated each season. For that kind of fanboy, nitpicking pleasure, head to Wikipedia's exhaustive List of The Simpsons couch gags. I'd tell you I dodn't, but you'd know that was a lie.


  1. Whoa, that was interesting. You really don't think about how many permutations of the couch gag there have been until you watch this.

  2. I was surprised by how many of them I didn't recognize. I didn't think I had missed that many.
