Ren & Stimpy Creator John K. Whips Up Manic Simpsons Couch Gag


The long and storied history of the Simpsons couch gag has just been addended to include last night’s opening, drawn by Ren & Stimpy creator/animator John Kricfalusi. It’s amazing to see how much the animation style changes the characters and tone of the show, even in a clip that’s under a minute long. Kricfalusi’s frantic, helter-skelter style makes for a remarkable couch gag, but it might also remind us to be grateful that the rest of Springfield is drawn relatively peacefully.
