|Brick Like Me|
"Brick Like Me" is the 550th episode of long-time running animated sitcom The Simpsons, aired on May 4, 2014 in both the United States and United Kingdom. It features Homer Simpson realizing that his hometown of Springfield and everyone in it have been transformed into LEGO creations and minifigures.
- The characters in "Brick Like Me" feature more traditionally shaped LEGO heads than the specially moulded ones which appear in 71005 The Simpsons Series and 71006 The Simpsons House. This is because they would be easier to animate and are more recognizably LEGO.
