What’s the best way to promote the first LEGO set based on The Simpsons? Doing an entire episode of the long-running animated show using LEGO blocks, of course.
On Sunday, TV Guide confirmed that the episode “Brick Like Me” was made entirely using LEGO blocks. It will be the show’s 550th episode and will air on May 4 at 8 p.m. In the show, Homer wakes up to find Springfield made entirely of LEGOs and has to figure out how this happened. Otherwise, he could get stuck in a LEGO Springfield forever.
The announcement some after LEGO revealed a Simpsons set, which is priced at $199.99. That’s a high price, but worth it for fans who want their own Simpsons house. It includes figures of all the members of the family, plus a Ned Flanders figure for good measure. The set even comes with a working garage door and their car.
LEGOs cannot be more popular right now. The LEGO Movie just scored another weekend at the top of the box office, grossing $48.8 million.
The Simpsons were renewed for a record 26th season in October.
