Popular animated series The Simpsons says goodbye to the talk show host with an awesome couch gag.
Television’s longest-running scripted show, The Simpsons, paid tribute to talk show host David Letterman last week, who announced his retirement on Thursday.
Letterman, who is the longest-serving late night talk show host, appears on The Simpsons’ famous Couch Gag as himself for the second time (the first was in Season Five) in his career – an achievement not many in the industry can claim.
In the tribute Couch Gag, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie travel all the way from Springfield to the Ed Sullican Theatre in New York City, to appear on the Late Show With David Letterman, where their couch is already “waiting”.
Also in the reel is the Late Show’s music director Paul Shaffer and his band, The CBS Orchestra.
