In terms of acknowledgement that Minecraft is a worldwide phenomenon, a Minecraft-themed The Simpsons intro is about as huge as it gets.

The ubiquitous videogame has partnered up with the world’s most ubiquitous TV show for the block-filled intro sequence, with Moe even getting a look-in as a Creeper…

In terms of accolades this is about as big as it gets for Minecraft developer Mojang, with the introduction sequence reworked in the style of Markus ‘Notch’ Persson’s iconic game. The intro aired for last night's 'Luca$' episode - it's just a shame we didn't get an entire Minecraft-themed episode for Springfield's finest.

"The Simpsons did a Minecraft couch gag. I'm not sure how I feel about it," Persson wrote on Twitter.

"I STILL feel a bit like it's just this small game I made at home. It's so weird to have all these things happen. <3"
