In recent years, The Simpsons has been executing some very elaborate and outstanding sequences for their traditional couch gag for the opening credits. Earlier this year The Simpsons got a Disney style makeover by Aladdin animator Eric Goldberg and last year featured references to Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty and even another opening done by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.
Now The Simpsons is getting the Adventure Time treatment, and going through Springfield in the same style of the opening credits of the popular Cartoon Network animated series that kids and adults alike rather enjoy. It’s an impressive sequence, and it’s actually twice as long as the usual Adventure Time opening credits. See which Adventure Time characters The Simpsons become and see if you can spot all the Easter eggs, including a monorail reference, in the full couch gag after the jump. Read More »

Many times it’s the voice that informs how a character is depicted, and that’s why it’s so surprising to learn that the same actors are behind the voices of many different cartoon and video game characters we know and love.
A new infographic lays out just some of the voice actors who are responsible for bringing various characters to life in video games like Uncharted and The Last of Us as well as animated series like The Simpsons, Futurama and Scooby-Doo.
