Bosses behind long-running animated hit The Simpsons are inviting fans to help them design the TV show's opening sequence.

Producers want members of the public to send in ideas for its famous credits, which show the sitcom's characters taking their place on the family's couch in a different way every episode.

The best 30-second submission will end up being animated for the final episode of the current season next year.

The contest rules state, "Your idea needs to be 2D animation; it must be 30 seconds or shorter; it can't have dialogue; it can't have music; it can't have brands or commercials; it must conform to broadcast standards; and it must use all five family members. Other than that, the only limit is your imagination."

Previous 'couch gags' have featured the Simpsons arriving home to find The Flintstones on their sofa as well as a sequence made with clay stand-ins.
