Simpsons' LEGO Episode to Air in May Sweeps

The Simpsons LEGO EpisodeFox 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).

    I think this is cool!

    I thought The Sinpsons was on Nickelodeon? No offence but it’s a show for 10 year-olds like Dr. Who. Anyone who watches it or this episode needs to mature.

    • Esaul says:

      I’d make a comment about your grammar, but anyhow…The Simpsons’ has always had a family feel aspect to the show, especially since it’s been on for over two decades. There are some of us who were born the same year the show debuted. There are others who were young teenagers when it premiered. This is a show that’s been around for a lot of people’s life. Sure the quality has changed, but the idea that it’s been around this long is still imminent. Also maturity has nothing to do with what people watch. If we define maturity by what society watches, we’d be screwed by now. As for Doctor Who (despite the fact that your analogy doesn’t work), it doesn’t cater to ten year olds. I can name a few dozen examples that trumps your notion that Doctor Who’s for ten year olds.

      Nickelodeon? What are you, 12? Oh wait, this is the internet.. you probably are 12.

      Most of the humor in The Simpsons was based on the politics and celebrity’s of the time. When I was young I didn’t watch The Simpsons because I thought it was boring and not funny at all. Now that I’m 27 I actually laugh out loud at the show.

      You are too funny!

      Shouldn’t you be hiding under your bridge waiting for three goats to trit trot over it?

    • ben says:

      Since when was Doctor Who a 10 year old?

      • Heather says:

        Doctor Who was actually originally a children’s show. The new series that started in 2005 swayed from that just slightly. My son is 7 and loves Doctor Who.

        The Simpson’s on the other hand is far from appropriate for anyone under 16.

      Anyone making such an ignorant comment like this first needs to grow up themselves. No offence but maybe you need to go back to school.

    • dee123 says:

      Obvious troll is obvious.

    • Ian Dack says:

      Hi, I’m 45 and watch the Simpsons and Doctor Who. I also watch Family Guy, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. Your argument is invalid.

  3. David4 says:

    The Simpsons’ house set has been release, it’s $200. Around the time this episode airs there will be a mini figure collection of 16 Simpsons characters in a grab bag.

  4. Just a little FYI to the author: the plural of LEGO is LEGO, or LEGO bricks. Never LEGOs. And that’s from the makers themselves.

    • David4 says:

      I have 7 million LEGOs, I really don’t give a f— what you call them.

      This is like when Nintendo came out and told everyone the correct spelling of the Gamecube was actually “Nintendo GameCube”.

  5. Andy Mercer says:

    To echo a previous comment … there is no such thing as “LEGOs”. There are LEGO pieces, LEGO bricks, etc. TLG (The LEGO Group) is very specific about this, and for good reason. Trademarks depend on a name not becoming synonymous with the item. MegaBlocks is a copycat, but it can’t use the word LEGO because of the trademark. People saying LEGOs puts that into jeopardy.

  6. Androme says:

    Wow. When I was a kid, I watched the Simpsons… for the colors and humor I could get. Today, I still watch for the colors. And ALL the humor that I can get.
