The Simpsons


The Simpsons is paying tribute to Disney characters in the past way ever. Veteran animator Eric Goldberg, known for his work on classic Disney flicks such as Aladdin, Pocahontas and Hercules, animated The Simpsons' couch gag for the Sunday, April 24 episode.

In the opening sequence, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie all take on various Disney characters. Homer has a Jungle Book inspired look, Marge is straight out of Snow White, Lisa is Cinderella, Maggie is the classic Mickey Mouse and Bart takes on Fantasia Mickey. There's classic Disney whimsy while sticking with the Simpsons style viewers have come to know and love.

Goldberg's other credits include Fantasia 2000, The Emperor's New Groove, Wreck-It Ralph and the upcoming Monana. He served as director on Pocahontas as well.

In the episode, "Fland Canyon," Homer recalls a tense family vacation to the Grand Canyon that the Simpson family took with the Flanders clan.

Coming up for The Simpsons is a live segment. On Sunday, May 15, Homer Simpson will go live for the final three minutes of the show—on both the East and West Coasts—to comment on the events of the day. Look for the show to use motion capture technology to make the animated live scene possible.

The long-running animated comedy has already been renewed for a season 28.

The Simpsons airs Sundays, 8 p.m. on Fox.
