The Simpsons Get the Disney Treatment in This Week's Opener
Lisa gets a chance to step into Cinderella's glass slippers and take a ride in a pumpkin carriage
Oh, the things this orange couch has seen!
For this Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons, the beloved animated family is paying homage to Disney classics during their signature orange couch opener. Veteran animator Eric Goldberg, who worked on multiple classic Disney flicks, gave each iconic yellow character different Disney makeover – including their pets.
Lisa gets a chance to step into Cinderella’s glass slippers and take a ride in a pumpkin carriage; Marge takes on the role [and chores] of Snow White and Homer gets to play the role of Baloo from The Jungle Book.
Then there’s baby Maggie, who plays the lovable classic Mickey Mouse while her brother portrays the eerie version of the Mouse House mascot from Fantasia.
The episode, titled “Fland Canyon,” will revolve around Homer recalling a disastrous trip to the Grand Canyon with his neighbors, the Flanders family.
The Simpsons airs Sundays (at 8 p.m. ET) on Fox.
