Video of the Day: Watch Sylvain Chomet do an animated couch gag for The Simpsons

7 March 2014 5:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most enduring aspects of the long-running animated show The Simpsons has been the couch gag that is present in the opening titles of every episode. Over the years, numerous artists have been tapped to create couch gags, including the elusive street artist Banksy. The newest artist to lend their talents to the show is French filmmaker Sylvain Chomet. Known for the animated features The Triplets of Belleville and The Illusionist, Chomet’s couch gag will be featured in the upcoming episode of The Simpsons. The bit has also been released online ahead of its airing, and can be seen below.

Watch: New Awesome 'Simpsons' Couch Gag, Plus: Disney's 'Where the Wild Things Are' Test Animation

7 March 2014 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you like your movies and TV shows drawn as opposed to filled with flesh-and-blood humans, these two stories will make your Friday. After 20-plus seasons on the air, you have to wonder if Matt Groening and crew ever feel like they’ve run out of funny couch gags to open each episode of The Simpsons. We don’t know if they have, but this Sunday’s episode hands the reins over to French animator Sylvain Chomet, who's crafted what some are calling the best opening couch sequence ever. Chomet -- who is best known for The Triplets of Belleville and The Illusionist – brings his signature style and French sensibilities to the Simpson clan. Watch as Homer snacks on snails, Bart tries to make his own goose-liver pate, and Marge launches a fruitless search for...

Watch: 'The Simpsons' Couch Gag Directed By Sylvain Chomet Plus 'True Detective' Parody

7 March 2014 2:18 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

So, what are people going to do on Monday when "True Detective" is over and parodies will quickly become dated? Well, "Game Of Thrones" and "Mad Men" are right around the corner, but before that, The Yellow King needs to be found, and "The Simpsons" have done just that. Okay, not quite, with the folks behind the show winking at fans by dropping Homer Simpson reclining with a sandwich, beer and a pair of antlers. Much more interesting is a new couch gag by "The Triplets Of Belleville" director Sylvain Chomet, which reinterprets America's nuclear family through his distinct lens, and it's pretty beautiful stuff. And following the Guillermo del Toro-helmed opening from last fall, we hope this is a trend that continues on the forever-running animated show. Check it all out below. [The Wrap/Vulture]

This is great, Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville, The Illusionist) gives us his version of "The Simpsons" couch gag seen before each of the show's episodes in a myriad of forms with guest segments bright to life by the likes of Banksy, Guillermo del Toro and others recently.

The Simpsons' couch gag gets a Gallic makeover by Sylvain Chomet

7 March 2014 9:51 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The famous credits gag is given a whimsical French tinge by Triplets of Belleville director Chomet, following another recent version by Guillermo Del Toro

• My favourite TV show: The Simpsons

The couch sequence on the Simpsons is one of the most reliable and comforting introductions on TV – always different and yet somehow always the same, as the family skitter in to some kind of surreal sight gag. But after well over 500 episodes, the producers are starting to farm the gag out elsewhere.

Recently we had Guillermo Del Toro's horror-filled take, and a Hobbit-themed epic, but now things get a little more whimsical and low-key. French animator Sylvain Chomet, director of The Triplets of Belleville and The Illusionist, takes the reins which a knowingly Gallic sequence: Homer eats snails, Bart attempts to make foie gras, and Maggie goes missing in typically slapstick fashion. Take a look at the clip below, »

Watch The Simpsons Couch Gag Triplets of Belleville-ized

6 March 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Simpsons has had success over the last few years from playing with their classic opening, whether it is using it to parody (like The Hobbit one) or handing it over to a notable artist (like Guillermo del Toro’s fantastic horror one). This Sunday there will be another example of the latter, when renowned French director and animator of such films as The Triplets of Belleville, Sylvain Chomet, takes over the couch gag. Did you catch the part where we said he’s French? Because the gag is as French as a cigarette-smoking frog eating cheese in an Eiffel Tower made of baguettes. »

The Simpsons Taps Sylvain Chomet for Coolest and Strangest Couch Gag Yet—Watch Now!

6 March 2014 11:46 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This could be the strangest and coolest Simpsons couch gag we've ever seen. Done by Oscar-nominated director Sylvain Chomet of The Triplets of Belleville fame, the gag starts off in normal Matt Groening animation and quickly turns to the style of French writer/director/animator Chomet. It's a stark difference compared to how viewers normally see the first family of Springfield. The fuse goes out at the Simpsons household and when the lights come back on, everybody's looking a little different and speaking French. Marge can't find Maggie, Bart stuffs a goose to make some pâté, Lisa plays the accordion and everybody is wearing glasses. Yep, that's Homer eating snails. It's »

"Moon Man" Is Worth The Trip

4 March 2014 8:13 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Despite audiences’ well-established love of Disney, Pixar and Dreamworks, animated movies that haven’t rolled off of the studio conveyor belt are often quite refreshing. Moon Man is no exception. A colorful and quirky film based on the 1967 children’s book by beloved author Tomi Ungerer (who also narrates the movie), it is very German and so occasionally very strange, albeit in the great tradition of strangeness to be found in international animated movies like The Triplets of Belleville. The visual style is not fancy and computer-generated, but startlingly flat and retro, yet it is no less vivid than the average high-budget Hollywood hit. Rather, it manages to bring the charming illustrations of the book to life to tell the story of the titular extraterrestrial and his adventures on Earth.

Watch: 50-Minute Roundtable With Directors/Producers Of 'Frozen,' 'Monsters University' & More

28 February 2014 3:22 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2004 the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature was in it’s fourth year. Three very different films were nominated (“The Triplets of Belleville,” “Brother Bear,” and “Finding Nemo”), with ‘Nemo’ taking home the award. Since then demand for high-performing animated films has skyrocketed. In 2013, three animated features made it into the top 10 grossing movies of the year (“Despicable Me 2,” “Frozen,” and “Monsters University”), bringing in over $600 million combined. Needless to say, Hollywood plans on riding this wave for the foreseeable future, and The Hollywood Reporter recently held a roundtable discussion with some of this year’s Best Animated Feature nominees. THR film editor Gregg Kilday and technology writer Carolyn Giardina brought together Chris Buck (co-director of “Frozen”), Dan Scanlon (director of “Monsters University”), Chris Wedge (director of “Epic”), Kristine Belson (producer of “The Croods”), and Chris Meledandri (Illumination CEO and a producer of »

Will ‘Frozen’ Continue the Best Original Song Success of Animated Films?

5 February 2014 10:08 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

One of the bright spots this past film year was the success of Disney’s Frozen. On the strength of it’s more modern princesses and an infectious score, the film set box office records and has garnered two Oscar nominations, Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Let It Go”, its infectious hit. In honor of Frozen’s nomination, we figured it was time to take a look at the history of animated movies in Original Song.

The history of animated films picking up nominations and wins in Best Original Song is a tale as old as time (see what I did there?). Since the 1930s, animated films have won this award 13 times and over 50 nominations, which you can see below. This is an even greater feat when you think about the consideration that animated films get when lists of musicals are made (they »
