LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - The Fox network's animated family The Simpsons is getting a plastic makeover on May 4, as the creators team up with toy company Lego for an entire episode created out of the plastic building blocks, Fox's consumer products division said on Sunday.

The episode, entitled Brick Like Me, will see family patriarch Homer Simpson wake up in a Springfield where everyone and everything is made out of Legos, and he must figure his way out before he gets stuck in the plastic world forever.

Danish company The Lego Group first started producing the plastic construction building blocks in 1949, which have become a popular toy around the world.

The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, is the longest-running animated series in the history of US television, making the cartoon family and their catch phrases, such as Homer's "D'Oh!," a facet of American pop culture.
