Matt Greoning's "Simpstasia"?

There's a scene in The Simpsons Movie in which Homer and Marge are getting ready for some serious amour-making, when in fly a bevy of bluebirds to help undress the leading couple. It's a fleeting but very funny homage to the chirpy menageries of Disney cartoon classics like Cinderella and Snow White, where friendly flocks and forest critters assist the humans with their couture and their chores.

Simpsons creator Matt Groening has long talked about his dream of making Simpstasia -- a Simpsons parody of Disney's Fantasia. But given the years and years it's taken to make the leap from TV series to feature film, this little bit of The Simpsons Movie might be as close as the kazillionaire cartoonist gets to tipping his baseball cap at Uncle Walt.
