Watch: "The Simpsons" takes on "Breaking Bad"

"The Simpsons" spoof "Breaking Bad" in the opening credits for its episode airing April 14, 2013. Fox

"The Simpsons" are "Breaking Bad" in the opening credits for the Fox comedy's Sunday episode.

Marge plays the cook, whipping up a batch of cupcakes (blue ones, naturally), which Bart takes away in a briefcase.

Homer, meanwhile, channels his inner Walter White (hey, they're both bald, right?), wearing a Heisenberg hat and spying from the car -- when he's not sleeping on the couch, that is.

The whole bit, set to the 1960s tune "Crystal Blue Persuation," pays tribute to a memorable "Breaking Bad" sequence that used the same song. And it ends with Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman watching the animated series on TV.

"The hardest part was making sure there were elements whose symbols were Th and Si," "The Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "Once we had that, we were off to the races."

Sunday's episode of "The Simpsons," titled "What Animated Women Want," airs at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
