On a related note the new Disney Pixar film Onwards currently in the cinema starts with a Simpsons mini-episode. The opening shot is of a Mickey Mouse silhouette, which turns out to be Homer with two donuts. It also said something along the lines of "Disney welcomes The Simpsons", and Mickey's shadow was also present in the Gracie Films end cap of the mini episode.
