Fans of both 'The Simpsons' and the late Marcia Wallace had known that FOX would pay tribute to the fallen actress this past Sunday, both in re-airing classic Emmy-winning episode "Bart the Lover" and the placement of a credits card in new episode "Four Regrettings and a Funeral." But those aren't the only ways 'The Simpsons' mourned their fallen friend this past Sunday.

Months ago we learned that horror master Guillermo del Toro would craft the couch gag for 'The Simpsons'' 2013 "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween special, previewing the sequence at Comic-Con 2013. But are you ready for the whole enchilada? From Hellboy to Harryhausen, see what the 'Pacific Rim' creator unearthed for what might be the most impressive 'Simpsons' gag yet!
We've heard quite a bit about 'The Simpsons'' twenty-fifth season, from its rich vein of celebrity guest stars, to the 'Homeland' parody that gripped this past Sunday's premiere, but is the spectre of death once again lurking about Springfield? Like Maude Flanders before, it seems one long-running 'Simpsons' character has been targeted for a permanent exit for the aging animation staple.
Twenty-five seasons on the air, we'd imagine 'The Simpsons' to have covered just about everything under and shielded from the sun, but it seems our favorite Springfield family has at least one new animation style to boldly go: LEGO!
