The Simpsons has revealed the couch gag for its Christmas special and it does not disappoint.

In 'The Couch Gag Before Christmas', the entire opening title sequence has been given a festive makeover, with as many Christmas references thrown in as possible.

Maggie has pointy elf ears, Bart surfs down the street on a snowboard and Homer pulls a candy cane that got stuck in his clothes at work from out of his shirt. Lisa still plays the saxophone, but it’s a version of Jingle Bells she free-styles over before getting covered in snow.


The animation then cuts to a message reading: “Obligatory Frozen reference”, before cutting to a snow couch, where Lisa, appearing as Frozen’s Elsa, is sitting. Bart hits her with a snowball and she immediately creates a giant ice palace, with Bart stuck at the top. Homer appears as Olaf, and bites his own nose, disappointed to discover it is simply a carrot.
