Worlds are about to collide in a big way on the season finale of The Simpsons.

Airing on Sunday, May 12 at 8/7c on Fox, the animated comedy has commissioned Seth Green‘s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, which produces the cult favorite stop-motion seriesRobot Chicken, to create a special stop-motion couch gag for the episode. “The Simpsons have been opening that up to a bunch of different artists and a bunch of different content creators to put their spin on The Simpsons couch gag,” Green says.

Between their nods to famed street artist Banksy and the critically acclaimed drama Breaking Bad,The Simpsons has continued to make headlines 24 seasons in thanks in no small part to these special intros. “We’re really pretty easy with these guest couch gags,” The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean says. “We just approach people that we admire and say, ‘It just has to have a couch’, and ‘make what you want.'”
