The couch gags that open each episode of “The Simpsons” have become legendary, ranging from special sequences crafted by celebs ranging from Banksy and Guillermo del Toro to a “Game of Thrones” spoof to another that crossed over with “Rick and Morty”.

With Christmas right around the corner, this week’s episode of “The Simpsons” (airing Sunday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on Global) brings fans a yuletide couch gag guaranteed to put the ho, ho, ho in your holiday.

Things kick off with Santa soaring over the skies of Springfield in a rocket-powered sled, segueing to Bart in class for his traditional show-opening detention, writing on the blackboard: “Snow angels are not frozen hobos.”

From there, the rest of the opening serves up a distinctively festive twist, with such added features as Homer toiling in Santa’s workshop instead of a nuclear power plant, bus-driver Otto attempting to light a candy-cane bong, and an epic sleigh chase in which Marge’s sleigh (pulled by a gang of Santa’s Little Helpers) is joined by Mr. Burns’ sleigh (pulled by his fierce Dobermans) and other sleighs piloted by the Crazy Cat Lady and her felines, the Sea Captain (pulled by penguins!) and Krusty the Clown’s monkey-powered sled.

You can see the couch gag in all its holiday glory above; and don’t miss this week’s episode of “The Simpsons”, airing Sundays at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
