For those of you wondering which members of The Simpsons would play which characters from The Hobbit, the US animation's latest extended opening sequence is about to give you an answer.

In the 'feature length' couch gag opening for the episode '4 Regrettings and a Funeral', Marge takes on the role of Gandalf, Moe becomes Gollum and Mr Burns plays the treasure obsessed dragon Smaug.

It comes a few weeks after the The Simpsons team allowed Pan's Labyrinth and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro to create the opening titles for latest Treehouse of Horror episode.
