First appearance: Lisa's First Word

The Circus Line Couch Gag is the first elongated couch gag made for The Simpsons.


The Simpsons get up off the couch and form a line with some dancers. The wall behind the couch moves away. This reveals a lot of other circus acts such as elephants, jugglers, magicians, trapeze artists and Santa's Little Helper walking on two legs.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

This is the most commonly used elongated couch gag used. It was first used to make up for shorter episodes.
