Think you have a great idea for an original THE SIMPSONS Couch Gag?
Contest Runs Through November 15
In celebration of the 24th season of THE SIMPSONS, FOX is giving fans of the animated series the opportunity to submit their written ideas for the iconic “couch gag” that appears during the opening credits of THE SIMPSONS. One lucky contest winner will have his or her submission brought to life in the season finale episode airing in May of 2013.
Announced during the season premiere, fans can submit a description of their couch gag ideas to thesimpsons.com/couchgag by Thursday, Nov. 15 at 11:59 PM (ET).
Tune in next Sunday, Oct. 7 (8:00-8:30 PM) for THE SIMPSONS’ 23rd annual “Treehouse of Horror.” In the opening segment of yet another Halloween-themed classic, THE SIMPSONS goes back to ancient times when a Mayan Homer and Marge are witnesses to the prediction by ancient calendar makers that 2012 will be the end of the world.
In “The Greatest Story Ever Holed,” the first of three spine-chilling stories, the Springfield Subatomic Supercollider creates a black hole that terrorizes the city, sucking up everything in its path.
Then, in “UNnormal Activity” the Simpsons install cameras all over the house when things start to go bump in the night, and Marge discovers it may have to do with an unholy pact she made some years prior.
In the final thrilling tale, “Bart & Homer’s Excellent Adventure,” Bart time-travels back to 1974 to buy a comic book at cover price, but inadvertently disrupts Homer and Marge’s courtship and becomes the son of Marge and Artie Ziff (guest voice Jon Lovitz) in present-day Springfield.
