Now that it’s almost 29 seasons in, and busy celebrating its 30th anniversary (bring on the pearls – wait, Lisa already has them), summarising every episode ever of The Simpsons in a matter of seconds is, well, kind of impossible.

Still, this didn’t prevent the show’s producers from having a bash. A big bash. Or, more accurately, a Big Bang.

Yes, the intro sequence to Chuck Lorre’s crazily successful show that pokes all manner of fun at nerds, geeks and pretty much anybody else with a brain (that’d be The Big Bang Theory, duh) has been Simpsonified in The Simpsons‘ latest couch gag.

Ah, it’s always a treat to see Kodos and Kang moving forward, not backward; upward, not forward and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!
