The Simpsons 26th season premiere took place last night and I won’t spoil anything for those who haven’t seen it yet (they killed off someone, just sayin’), but as you’ll see from this almost two minute opening couch gag scene it was an episode for the ages before the show barely even got started.
As for it being the longest ever? The guy who created it, amazing animator and filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt, says he was told it was the longest one in the show’s 25-plus year history. It was worth every second.
