Watch The Simpsons' Snowy 'White Christmas Blues' Couch Gag

The Simpsons is decking the halls this Sunday night with “White Christmas Blues,” and to tease the holiday episode, Fox has given us an early look at the episode’s couch gag, which shows Springfield covered in snow, and many of its residents looking more elfish than usual.

Here are the details for Sunday’s episode:

Springfield is inundated with holiday revelers after the nuclear power plant springs a radiation leak, causing snow to fall all over town. When the tourists drive up Christmas shopping prices, Marge (Julie Kavner) opens up the Simpsons’ house to boarders in the all-new “White Christmas Blues” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Dec. 15 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

As for what went on in the couch gag, since some of it moved a bit quickly, we grabbed some screenshots to showcase the signage. That includes Grandpa finding a silver lining (in a sad sort of way).


While Bart does time for calling his teacher "Prancer" and "Vixen"...

And Springfield plans a production of Krusty's Kristmas Karol (with Sideshow Bob Hatchet):

And here's the title card:

And apparently, North Pole Springfield discriminates against dwarfs the way Middle Earth Springfield (opens in new tab) discriminates against dwarves...


Meanwhile, Lenny and Karl countdown to the real birth of Christ:


But not everyone in Springfield celebrates Christmas. Some eat Chinese food...

While others celebrate Kwanza or in the case of Comic Book Guy, Festivus (for the rest of us!)...


That's a mighty Festivus pole he's got there.
