The Simpsons gets a Minecraft-themed intro

Minecraft gets immortalised by Matt Groening's legendary TV series

Last night in the US, fans of The Simpsons were treated to the new Minecraft-themed introduction to the show.

The intro shows the Simpsons rendered in Minecraft's trademark cubic style with Moe popping up at the end as a Creeper.

The game's creator, Markus 'Notch' Persson is still a bit bewildered by Minecraft's popularity and was a little bit unsure of the sequence.

He said on Twitter, "The Simpsons did a Minecraft couch gag. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I STILL feel a bit like it's just this small game I made at home. It's so weird to have all these things happen."
