The Simpsons are known for their Couch Gags at the beginning of each episode dating back to their first season in the 80’s. Don Hertzfeldt is known for his eccentric animations he’s been doing for a while such as Rejected (linked here with text commentary from Don) and Ah L’amour. These things combine into something that is just delightfully bizarre. As a random note too, in the 27 seasons of The Simpsons, it also turns out to be the longest couch gag time-wise. So thank you Don, for making millions of people tilt their head in confusion at the same time, which should hopefully be another record set by this video clip.

This is a short animated film by Steve Cutts, and is the current Staff Pick on Vimeo. Here we get to take a peek into the lives of cartoon characters from yesteryear, and overall I would say it isn’t pretty. The job market and bad economy doesn’t just affect us real folks. Most of the toons have fallen on hard times, and none more so than Roger and Jessica.
