The Simpsons Meets Adventure Time in Season Premiere Couch Gag — Watch

In advance of The Simpsons‘ 28th season premiere (Sunday, 8/7c), Fox has released the episode’s highly anticipated couch gag, which puts the “Ooo” in “Woo-hoo[o]!”

An homage to Adventure Time, the 45-second gag turns the residents of Springfield into characters from the hit Cartoon Network series. (Mr. Burns as the Ice King is almost too perfect.)

“That was the brain child of Mike Anderson, our supervising director,” executive producer Al Jean tells TVLine, adding that Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward also recorded lyrics for the gag. “It’s a really beautiful, elaborate crossover.”
