The Simpsons are no longer just a show, they are a television institution. A show that changed the way we look at the modern family sitcom and changed the way we look at primetime cartoons. Legos are also an institution. A brand that changed the way people looked at creativity and toys. So it only makes sense that these two institutions would meet up and do something together. Yes, you read that correctly. The Simpsons go Lego in a future episode that will be made entirely using the wonderful little bricks.
Just take a moment to wrap your brain around that. Can you even fathom what it will be like when The Simpsons go Lego? We imagine it is a result of the success of the Lego movie, as well as all the great Lego video games that have come out in the last five years. A recent Simpsons Lego set cannot hurt the decision, either. The Lego episode will be number 550 for the show (wow) and it will be entitled: Brick Like Me. It will be about Homer waking up one day to realize everyone and everything is made out of Legos. So not only will it be a Lego episode, it will actually be ABOUT Legos. How fourth-wall breaking and meta is that? Learn more at TV Line.
The Simpsons go Lego on May 4th at 8pm on Fox. Make sure to tune in.
