    The Simpsons "The Parent Rap" Homer, Marge, and Lisa Production Couch Gag Cel Setup (Fox, 2001). Fans of The Simpsons eagerly await the show's opening each week to see what new surprise will befall the family, as they race toward their favorite piece of furniture. This "couch gag" is an amazing four cel setup, with the background being the fourth cel. Hand-painted on 12 field production cels, this setup is from the 2001 episode "The Parent Rap" which ran on 11/11/01, and was the second episode on Season Thirteen. The chalk board gag was "Nobody reads these anymore." Behind the couch is the painting of the boat in water that causes the gag. The setup bears the official Twentieth Century Fox seal of authenticity and includes a certificate of authenticity. Couch gag setups are impossible to find, and this one is in Fine condition.
