Now, sure, The Simpsons' couch gags have been getting progressively more out there for a long time now - in increasingly brilliant fashion - but sometimes they can still take some pretty impressively dark turns. So much so, in fact, that they can, on occasion, leave you confused as to whether this show is anywhere near as kid-friendly as it was back in the day, when you first started watching it.

It's perhaps not too much of a surprise, then, that the newly revealed Couch Gag from the forthcoming Simpsons/Futurama crossover episode is pretty darned strange - or that it gets seriously, seriously dark:

Yup, that's right...

Hedonismbot made a Cameo Appearance...

Freaking out the entire Simpson family

Except, of course, for Homer

Who Hedonismbot then gropes

And Pretty Much Straight Up Molests... know what? That's actually pretty darned weird. And kind of uncomfortable viewing...I mean, it's The Simpsons, so it's still funny, but it doesn't really feel like it should be...


What do you guys think? Funny, or kind of uncomfortable?
