(Relaxnews) – Fox will broadcast “Brick Like Me,” a full “Simpsons” episode shot in Lego bricks, on Sunday, May 4.

The 550th episode of the animated saga will turn Springfield into Legoland. Homer will wake up in a world made of Lego pieces and have to figure out a way to get back to his animated universe.

This special episode finalizes a deal between Lego and the American network announced last month to mark the 25th anniversary of the series.

The collaboration became a reality on February 1 when Lego released a special Simpsons-themed set of bricks for building the iconic house owned by the yellow family. Several “Simpsons” characters were reshaped into Lego bricks for the occasion. One of them was Milhouse, Bart’s friend, who also has a cameo appearance in “The Lego Movie,” currently leading the worldwide box office.
