For this year’s episode, “I Won’t Be Home for Christmas,” Matt Groening’s name doesn’t come up until about 90 seconds into the candy cane filled couch gag. (Nice choice on the use of said candy cane, Otto).
Eventually, the gag switches gears for an “obligatory Frozen reference.”
Don’t worry, there’s no singing involved.
The Simpsons Christmas episode airs this Sunday (Dec. 7) on FOX. Watch the couch gag, above.
