* A live-action version of the sequence, originally made as a promo on British TV network Sky1 (which, perhaps not coincidentally, was also a [=NewsCorp=] property), was eventually used as an actual show opening on the season 17 episode "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife."

* Probably the most infamous of the couch gags was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX1iplQQJTo the one]] for "[=MoneyBART=]", storyboarded by subversive and [[TheFaceless reclusive]] street artist Creator/{{Banksy}}. It started with the typical intro (with 'Banksy' written over several billboards and walls, and Bart writing "I must not write on the walls", all over the room) ending with all the Simpsons on the couch. [[CrossesTheLineTwice It then panned out to a stereotypical Korean sweatshop animating the show, with small barefoot children washing the cells in biohazardous material, kittens being ground up to stuff Bart Simpson plushies which are then carted off by a starving panda and packed in boxes sealed with the tongue of a dolphin head, and a person making Simpson DVDs by smashing out the center holes on the horn of a dying unicorn chained to a wall. Then the camera pans out to reveal]] [[BitingTheHandHumor the sweatshop being inside the 20th Century Fox logo, which has a decrepit, prison-esque look, finally panning out to the Simpsons' TV.]] Needless to say, the actual South Korean animators, despite having to actually animate the sequence themselves [[http://content.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2027768,00.html were not amused]].
* A ''Simpsons''-specific StationIdent for Creator/{{Channel 4}} produced for the channel's broadcast of the show from 2007 to 2014, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWLoYnpjcKw in which]] Homer repeatedly shocks himself trying to retrieve a six-pack of Duff, was later used in the show itself as the couch gag for "Specs and the City," updated with UsefulNotes/SuperBowl references and ClumsyCopyrightCensorship to make Channel 4's logo less obvious (it's still visible if you have a keen eye). (On that note, Channel 4 produced a new ''Simpsons''-specific ident when they rebranded to their not-showing-the-channel's-logo-on-telly era in 2015, but given [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_1hOoCagjg the ident's sheer abstraction]], it's practically unlikely to be used as a couch gag.)

* "Dad Behavior" has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h365_F5BzDg a title sequence]] that is either [[BlackComedy morbidly hilarious]] or [[NightmareFuel downright horrifying]]. It starts off with Barney breaking Bart's skateboard after being tired of Bart constantly hitting him with it in the newer opening sequence. This is unexpected and quite funny, especially when the music stops to emphasise this, [[MoodWhiplash but then in the next scene]], Homer ends up choking on the radioactive material he's handling until he collapses. After that, during the school band scene, RealityEnsues as Lisa's dancing out of the room whilst playing the sax leads to her banging her head against the wall and possibly even breaking her neck. But the worst part is when Marge falls asleep in the car and wakes up to find Maggie driving it, and her attempts to take back the wheel results in the car falling into a river, and a few seconds of silence before Marge's lifeless body floats up to the surface. And to top it all off, Bart arrives at home to find no one else there, is worried at first, [[CrossesTheLineTwice but then realises this means he gets the TV all to himself]].

* In "Four Regrettings and a Funeral", as [[InMemoriam a tribute]] to the late Marcia Wallace (the actress who provided Mrs. Krabappel's voice), Bart writes "We'll really miss you, Mrs. K." exactly one time with a sad look on his face. [[TearJerker Grab the hankies.]]
