If you think Warner Bros. is the only outfit having fun with LEGOs right now, you’d be wrong, because Fox’s iconic animated sitcom, the Simpsons, will also get their bricks on as they prepare a new episode made entirely out of LEGO bricks.
Titled “Brick Like Me,” the episode is scheduled to be the 550th in the long running series and will focus on Homer as he tries his best to escape from a LEGO Simpsons Universe. And he’ll have to do it fast or he will be trapped in it forever. “Brick Like Me” is scheduled to air in the US on May 4, 2014.
The episode is no doubt part of 20th Century Fox’s partnership with LEGO, which was signed last January, and resulted in a Simpsons Lego house that went on sale this month.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Fox during the 25th anniversary year of The Simpsons,” said Jill Wilfert, VP of licensing and entertainment at The LEGO Group at the time. “We know our fans will love the challenge of building the Simpsons’ family home in great detail and the ability to collect quintessential characters in LEGO minifigure form will let them showcase their love of the show in a whole new way. We are also excited that The Simpsons will be created in LEGO form, truly bringing this partnership to life.”
