The 22 Seasons Banner couch gag is the first couch gag of Season 22.
The Simpson family runs in and sits on the couch as usual, but above the couch is a banner hung above the couch that says,"22 Seasons: Congratulations from FOX". A FOX representative comes in with a cupcake that has a candle on it, and Marge lets Maggie to blow the candle, so she blows out the candle. However, before the family can have the cupcake, the FOX representative eats it for himself, then leaves the room. The banner then falls down as the Simpsons turn depressed.
