Intro Gags
The Family rushing in wakes Santa's Little Helper who is asleep on the couch. He growls at them fiercely. Scared, the family backs away.
The couch turns into a monster and eats the family.
Maggie is already seated on the couch. Homer, Marge and Bart run in and run off the end of the film strip, they run back in as Lisa joins them to sit on the couch.
The family dances a chorus line, then joined by dancers, jugglers and elephants.
Miniature versions of the family run in to a normal sized couch.
After the family run in, Eddie, Patty, Selma, Apu, Krusty, Grampa, Herman, Jasper, Jaqueline Bouvier, Lou, Smithers, Mr. Burns, Mrs. Krabappel, Principal Skinner, Princess Kashmir (with black hair), Miss. Hoover, Chief Wiggum, Ned Flanders, Maude Flanders, Barney, Moe, Dr. Hibbert, Kent Brockman, Otto, Nelson, Milhouse, and Martin all join them.
The family are crushed by a Monty Python Foot
The floor is actually water with everything else floating. The Family swim with their heads under to the couch, Bart has a snorkel.
The couch constantly retreats into the back wall, as the family chase after it.
The living room is a parody of The Labarinth with each family member running in from a different wall.
The living room is black and white, the family run, all wearing white gloves, (Bart also has Mickey Mouse's shorts) and do a bouncing dance in front of the TV.
The Family run in and their sizes are reversed, Homer is the smallest while Maggie is the biggest. Bart notices that something isnt right.
