The couch gag for the ‘Futurama’ episode of ‘The Simpsons’ is a fun start

The Planet Express crew is back once again, thanks to the Simpsons.

Futurama may no longer be on the air, but they’re returning for a crossover episode with The Simpsons. And while we won’t know if it’ll be a hit or go the way of the Family Guy crossover episode, the first surefire test comes from the episode’s couch gag.

As you can see below, the couch gag balances the series’ usual tongue-in-cheek humor with an appearance from one of the many recognizable minor characters from Futurama. It’s both funny and awkward, but hey, Homer isn’t complaining.

When you pair this with the first clip of Simpsorama from Entertainment Weekly, it’s clear that the crossover will probably do just fine. The fact that Matt Groening created both shows probably helps, too.
