'The Simpsons' 'Hobbit' Couch Gag Is Great

"The Simpsons" is known for lampooning popular culture, but the latest couch gag takes the cake. The epic "Hobbit" inspired opening is complete with a sweeping score, maps and the yellow-skinned family going on a long journey.

Moe as Gollum is perfect. Look for the gag to air as part of "4 Regrettings and A Funeral."

"The Simpsons" airs Sundays, 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
