Meet the Simpsons, now in Lego form


D’oh! This one was a no-brainer: The Simpsons are now Legos.

Lego and Twentieth Century Fox Television announced this week they had reached a much-anticipated deal to turn everyone’s favorite dysfunctional family into Lego bricks.

There are six mini-figures -- Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Maggie and Ned Flanders, as well as a two-story home that features a garage containing a dented car and the many items that Homer has “borrowed” from Ned over the years.

Among the interior features: that famous couch that figures so prominently in the Fox TV show, which at 25 is the longest-running scripted series in TV history.
