    They show that one where the Simpsons run in and meet themselves sitting on the couch so many damned times, here's a spinoff idea.

    Have them run in and meet their voice acting counterparts, with a mini Nancy Cartwrite doubling for Maggies Seat...

    Too bad they don't read this forum [​IMG].

    Or how about just not having it. That'd throw people off. I don't ever remember them not having it in some form.

    But Elizabeth Taylor provided the voice of Maggie.

    What I have heard is Matt Groening provides the sucking sounds for Maggie's pacifier (or at least he used to early in the run). Maybe they could use him in Maggie's seat.

    Speaking of Groening, he'll make his first ever appearance on the show Sunday as himself. I saw the clip today on that horrid show "Good Day Live" while channel surfing this afternoon. Pretty funny clip, with references to his "other" animated creation.

    There have been numerous episodes with differently themed openings, or no openings at all. See The Simpons Nuclear Power Plant For information on all couch gags

    My idea for a couch gag is have them animated to look like The Sims. Click on the family, and we see the option "Sit." It's clicked and they all sit down.
