Marge buys Krusty-O's, Mr. Sparkle, and Tomacco Juice.

After 19 years The Simpsons finally got a new opener—all to highlight the show's first-ever episode in HD, which aired Sunday, February 15.

Even the most casual Simpsons viewer knows that food and drink has played a huge role in the show over the years, so it's not surprising to see a number of references to edibles in this intro. Watch video of the new opener, after the jump.

A giant Lard Lad Donuts sign is new. Lard Lad is, of course, a nod to both Big Boy and L.A.'s Randy's Donuts.

Bart skates out of school and lands on Barney, passed out under a pile of leaves—no doubt drunk on Duff beer.

The grocery store scene is still there, but now Marge is buying Frosty Krusty-O's, Mr. Sparkle dishwashing detergent, and Tomacco Juice—all references to stand-out episodes ("'Round Springfield," "In Marge We Trust," and "E-I-E-I-D'oh!" respectively).

Comic Book Guy can be seen very briefly with a bag and soda from Krusty Burger.

And that's all, folks. But, hey, here's the whole episode if you want to watch. There's a scene where Homer looks into a huge pot of spaghetti sauce to see what his life would have been like had he won senior class president in high school.
