Watch: ‘The Simpsons’ Takes on ‘Frozen’ in Holiday Couch Gag

It’s only fitting that the biggest animated show is paying homage to the biggest animated film.

The couch gag for this year’s “Simpsons” holiday special contains an “obligatory ‘Frozen’ reference” one minute and 15 seconds into the opening credits.

The “Frozen” riff will precede this Sunday’s holiday episode, titled “I Won’t Be Home for Christmas.”

In the clip, the family meets Lisa on a frozen pond in front of their icy couch. When Bart hurls a snowball at his little sister, Lisa channels her inner Elsa, materializing an ice castle that grows instantaneously, trapping Bart high in the sky (ay caramba, indeed).

However, it’s Homer who steals the show as Olaf when he eats his own carrot nose.

    “Holiday” couch gag. You talk as if we knew what you were talking about. Is it December? Black Friday shenanigans, end of the year whoopee time? As far as I know there isn’t anything passing for a legal holiday till December 25th but we don’t celebrate that in public anymore. So what the heck are you referring to?
