Fox has set an airdate for the all-LEGO episode of The Simpsons it has constructed.
The animated series’ 550th episode, titled “Brick Like Me,” will air Sunday, May 4 (aka the second Sunday of May sweeps, which this year starts on April 24).
In the special episode, Homer wakes up in a world where his family and everyone in Springfield are made of LEGOs. He then must “put together” how he got there and somehow figure out how to get home.
Not at all coincidentally, news of the LEGO episode comes just weeks after it was announced that the premiere manufacturer of plastic construction bricks/ouchies to the bottoms of parents’ bare feet was coming out with a Simpsons-themed set (pictured above), as well as on the heels of The LEGO Movie‘s “block”-busting success (though this episode was obviously set in motion well beforehand).
The Simpsons resumes its 25th season on March 9.
