Springfield may never be the same after a visit from Thanos in one of The Simpsons' infamous opening couch gags from January 13's episode.

In a brief joke mirroring a scene from Avengers: Infnity War, Thanos arrives to claim Maggie's binky for his vaunted Infinity Gauntlet.

Of course, the deaths at Thanos' hand here stick even less than we're expecting the ones from Infinity War to do by the time Avengers: Endgame is done. 

And this does raise another thought - is Thanos' appearance here one of the first Disney/Fox crossovers since Disney's purchase of Fox?

The Simpsons airs Sunday nights on Fox. Avengers: Endgame is due out in theaters April 26.
