Usually, we can't help but wait in anticipation to see what the final seconds of The Simpsons opening sequence will bring, but for the first time in over two decades, the entire opener received a full makeover to coincide with its switch to HDTV.

The opening follows all the same motions, but with subtle extras added throughout: Bart still zips by on his skateboard, but now he uncovers a belching Barney under a pile of leaves raked up by an unhappy Groundskeeper Willie. Maggie still gets rung up at the supermarket, but the camera pans out to show her shaking fists with her baby nemesis, Gerald.

We see the family capture their couch, which was on-the-run for about a solid minute of credits, and then learn that they've upgraded to a new flat-screen television.
