Watch the first teaser for The Simpsons' LEGO episode

When your TV show has been on for 25 seasons, how do you come up with a fresh idea? The creative team behind The Simpsons has hit upon exactly the answer they would have openly mocked 15 years ago: corporate synergy!

This Sunday's episode will transport Springfield to the LEGO universe, offering block versions of many of the show's familiar characters. The first teaser promises "the adventure of a lifetime" when the LEGO version of Homer begins to experience mysterious visions of his traditional cartoon-y self.

It looks pretty bizarre, but it's yet another sign that they'll never stop The Simpsonshave no fears, they've got stories for years. --Scott Meslow
