Simpsons Intro By del Toro

Simpsons stillGuillermo del Toro has created the Couch Gag for this year’s “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons.

At 1:42 watch for Lovecraft, Poe, and Bradbury – daubing tattoos on the Illustrated Man while Richard Matheson (to the right) looks on.

[Thanks to John King Tarpinian for the story.]

Update 10/04/2013: Added Matheson identification. Screencap by Phil Nichols.

  1. A lot of self-promotion by “Bill the Bull” too. I can’t wait to buy the boxed DVDs … sometimes in 2019, perhaps?

  2. There are four Phantoms of the Opera–Lon Chaney, Claude Rains and Herbert Lom from the movies, plus the Phantom from the cover of the original novel. And the Phantom of the Paradise (William Finley), too.
