Check Out Don Hertzfeldt's Trippy 'Simpsons' Couch Gag

More interesting than the character killed off on last night's Simpsons premiere was the delightfully creepy couch gag by animator Don Hertzfeldt, which reimagines the Simpsons — or the Sampsons — in the very distant future. Be warned that this couch gag may cause nightmares and disturbing revelations about how television will utilize our exo-skulls in the years to come.

Here's a 'Simpsons' Couch Gag Animated by 'The Triplets of Bellevile's Sylvain Chomet

The Simpsons has really been getting into having guest artists animate the show's couch gags lately. Here's the latest, set to air in this Sunday's episode, from French animator and director Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Bellevile, The Illusionist). The Simpsons started using guest artists to do the credits on occasion in 2010 and has featured couch gags from the street artist Banksy, cartoonists John Kricfalusi and Bill Plympton, and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.
