The Simpsons: An Unexpected Hobbit Couch Gag

Oh boy, it's actually funny!

Fox has released an early peek at the November 3rd episode of The Simpsons. Well, maybe not a peek so much as the entire minute-and-a-half long couch gag, which places Marge in the role of Gandalf and Homer as Thorin Oakenshield. Sure, he’s not as dreamy as Richard Armitage, but he still gets the job done.

The episode is entitled “4 Regrettings And a Funeral,” which apparently is not a tribute to the late Marcia Wallace, nor is it a reference to the character that’s supposed to die sometime later this season. Hopefully the rest of it will be as enjoyable as the little details in this clip, but… well, we’re sure everybody has their own opinions about the current state of The Simpsons. At least we got to see a little hobbit Maggie, though, right?
