There isn’t too much to say here other than if you missed The Simpsons last night, be sure to check out the opening sequence embedded above. (Pardon the b-roll in front) To nitpick a little: there are 19 museums and galleries, not just one; the Hope Diamond, Fonz’s jacket, Dorothy’s slippers, the Spirit of St. Louis and Jackson Pollack are not in the same building; the Star-Spangled Banner is a lot bigger. On the other hand, to their credit, they did a nice rendering of the Natural History Museum building and they even had the foresight to preview this year’s mummies exhibit (now in a sneak preview.) Did you catch anything else in the background that’s not in the collections?
