Video: 'The Simpsons' Takes on 'The Hobbit' in Couch Gag


Marge as Gandalf leads her family on a long journey through a jungle and a snowy landscape to get to their iconic couch.

It's now "The Hobbit's" turn to get a simpsonized treatment. After paying tribute to various horror films in Guillermo del Toro-created couch gag for its annual Halloween episode, "The Simpsons" spoofs Peter Jackson's movie in another epic opening sequence for an upcoming episode.

In the new one-and-a-half-minute couch gag, the yellow-skinned family goes on a long journey to get to their iconic couch. Marge, dressing as Gandalf, leads the pack as they make their way through a jungle, a narrow cliff path, where Moe's Smeagol is lurking in a cave, and a snowy landscape.

They encounter drinking buddies Lenny, Carl and Barney who depict the trolls, which get turned into stones when the sun rises, and the villainous dragon Smaug on their way home.

The couch gag will open the episode titled "4 Regrettings and a Funeral" which will air Sunday, November 3 at 8/7c on FOX. It's likely the episode that will feature the death of a character which executive producer Al Jean talked about earlier this month.

The official synopsis reads, "Four Springfielders are prompted to try to right past regrets following the funeral of a beloved neighbor. Homer regrets selling his Apple stock to buy a bowling ball, Marge worries she caused Bart's rebellious streak, Mr. Burns reminisces about a romance he gave up with a beautiful Parisian woman and Kent Brockman admits he was too afraid to leave local news and follow his former partner Rachel Maddow (guest appearing as herself) to cable news."
