The Simpsons is an American adult animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series is a satirical parody of a working-class American lifestyle epitomized by its family of the same name, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television, and many aspects of the human condition.

The show was controversial from its beginning and has made the news several times. In the early seasons, some parents and conservatives characterized Bart as a poor role model for children and several United States public schools even banned The Simpsons merchandise and T-shirts. In January 1992, then-President George H. W. Bush made a speech during his re-election campaign in which he said: "We are going to keep on trying to strengthen the American family, to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons." In 2002, the show was nearly sued by the Rio de Janeiro tourist board for creating an unreal image of the city on the show.

The Simpsons Movie, a feature-length film, was released in theaters worldwide on July 26 and July 27, 2007. Previous attempts to create a film version of The Simpsons failed due to the lack of a script of appropriate length and production crew members. Eventually, producers Brooks, Groening, Al Jean, Mike Scully, and Richard Sakai began development of the film in 2001. They conceived numerous plot ideas, with Groening's being the one developed into a film. The script was re-written over a hundred times, and this creativity continued after animation had begun in 2006. The film was a box office success, and received overwhelmingly positive reviews.

The Simpsons eventually became the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program, and in 2009 it surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series. [1] Since its debut on December 17, 1989, the show has broadcast 662 episodes and its 30th season started airing on September 30, 2018.

"Brick Like Me" is the twentieth episode of Season 25. This is the 550th episode of the series overall.

Synopsis

Homer finds himself in a world where everyone and everything in Springfield are made of LEGO pieces.

Homer wakes up in a world where everything and everyone is made of LEGO, except for Maggie being made of DUPLO bricks and is larger than the other characters. While driving, he goes to purchase a LEGO castle for Lisa's birthday.

At school, Bart and Milhouse chase a skunk Milhouse brought in for "Share Day". The skunk gets in behind the walls. While trying to disassemble the wall, Willie learns of the skunk and smashes through the wall collapsing the school down. Principal Skinner tells Bart to rebuild the school.

At the Comic Book Store, Comic Book Guy hands Homer Lisa's LEGO Princess Shop. When Homer touches the box he has a flash of himself, as his normal cartoon self, giving the gift to Lisa and helping her build it, finding he likes building things of LEGO. He snaps out of it, freaking out and runs out of the store. Homer tells Marge about his vision. She tells Homer that it was a dream. Homer goes to the bathroom sink and splashes water on his face. He looks at his reflection and sees his cartoon self, thinking it is a mystical mysterious mirror. Homer walks by the Kwik-E-Mart and sees his cartoon reflection in the window and scolds at it. Apu then points his cartoon image on the advent calendar. He is shocked and immediately goes to Moe's and his beer turns to liquid instead of being plastic circles. Moe, Lenny, and Carl turn cartoon and back again. Homer runs out of the bar.

Bart has the idea to reshape the school into a better fun place and does so while Willie sleeps.

At church, Reverend Lovejoy talks about the creation of the world by the creator. Lovejoy talks about the world being plastic and Homer asks what if the world isn't all plastic. His hands turn cartoon. Everyone sees Homer's hands and turn against him. Marge stands up for him and they leave to go to the Comic Book Store for answers.

At the Comic Book Shop, Homer touches the box for another vision. In the vision, cartoon Homer and Lisa are making a LEGO Springfield in the basement. Marge gives them a flyer for a LEGO Construct contest. Lisa plans to enter. Later, after Homer builds the Duff Brewery, Lisa is gone from the basement and she is in her room with some girls talking about going to the new Survival Games movie. Homer enters and embarrasses her. Lisa plans to go to the movie instead of the contest. At the contest, Homer wishes he lived in his LEGO town, Comic Book Guy's entry falls on Homer knocking him unconscious.

In the LEGO world, Comic Book Guy tells Homer and Marge that their world is fantasy and that their world was created by Homer so Lisa will always love him. Homer likes this idea and his cartoon hands turn back to bricks. Homer then enjoys his fantasy life.

After rebuilding eleven more Springfield Elementary Schools out of Lego bricks as his punishment, Bart vows never to build what he wants again, Principal Skinner tells him he's learnt his lesson and he has got five more Springfield Elementary school Lego kits for his birthday and Bart is forced to rebuild an extra five schools, much to his disappointment.

Homer enjoys a tea party with Lisa, talking about nothing will ever change including his job and realizes he can't live a fantasy. He goes to the Comic Book store and tells Comic Book Guy he wants to go home. All Homer has to do is open the LEGO castle box he wants for Lisa, but CBG won't let him. Comic Book Guy becomes furious and he is now the villain. He builds a fort around the store and has pirates and ninjas attack Homer. Homer cries for help and Bart comes to the rescue in a giant Power Rangers type robot and takes down the pirates and ninjas using lions. The robot breaks down and falls on the Comic Book store.

In the rubble, Homer finds the box, opens it and changes back to his normal cartoon self, kisses Marge goodbye and jumps in the box.

Homer regains consciousness at the LEGO contest. He tells Lisa about his dream and the lessons he learned. Lisa thinks that was the plot of "The LEGO Movie", but Homer dismisses that notion. He tells Lisa to go to the movie knowing he can't stop her from growing up. The episode finishes with a pan out above the city into space and goes up until a LEGO man is building the universe.

In the credits, Homer and Marge sit behind Lisa at the theater. Homer hates the movie but Marge likes it. He keeps talking to her so she shushes him so she can enjoy and watch it.

"The Simpsons" episode "Brick Like Me" was one of the family's most fun and creative adventures in years. With the whole town turned into LEGOs, the writers took every single opportunity to make as many clever LEGO jokes as they could.

But just how many LEGO puns and gags are hidden in the episode? We found all 52 (we think):

1) Homer says that Marge gave him her hand in marriage, and literally takes off her hand.


Luckily, she has a special champagne hand that she last used on New Year's Eve.


2) Homer on LEGO Maggie: "They're so cute when they're Duplo."


3-5) 99-Stud Store, Lard Fig Donuts, Brik-E-Mart


6) H and R Brick


7) BS - First Brick Of Springfield


8) Brick, Block, & Beyond


9) Adult Blocks


10) Basic (LEGO) Human Anatomy


11) Bart rebuilds school following LEGO playset guidelines.


School playset is 15,000 pieces, for ages 12+, though as Principal Skinner says, "Age guidelines are conservative. Everyone knows it."

12-15) Philip K. Brick Books: "UBrick"; "Minifig In The High Castle"; "We Can Bulid You"; "The Three Stigmata Of Timothy Archer" (with a LEGO eye on a LEGO hand).

16) "Block Runner"

17) "Radioactive Fig"


18) "Bloc-quaman"

19) "Block-Go Comics"


20-23) More Philip K. Brick Books: "Sort My Pieces, The Policeman Said"; "Beyond Lies the Stud"; "A Scanner Blockly"; "Do Mini-Figs Dream Of Plastic Sheep?"


24) Brick iPhone


25) "Everything fits with everyone else and no one gets hurt" is both Lego movie reference and part of theme of the episode.

26) Homer isn't bleeped when he says, "Oh Brick Me"

27) Apu, when he thinks he is insulted, becomes righteously indignant by telling Homer that he's on the LEGO Advent Calendar (he's December 18).


A bunch of other classic "Simpsons" characters make an appearance on the calendar too.

28) The 5 Degrees of LEGO Love Tester At Moe's Tavern: Grey 1x1, Blue 3x1, Yellow 4x2 Flat, Orange 6x2 Brick With Holes, and, the granddaddy of them all, Red 8x2 With Slanty Part And Hinges.

29) Moe's has a "Hats and Hair Dispenser" by the exit.


30) When LEGO Willie falls asleep, brick thought bubbles emerge from his head, with brick lettering spelling "ZZZ".


31) Sign outside Church: "The Bible: The Best-Selling Block In The World"


32) Behind the reverend is a long brown block that seems a lot like a LEGO crucifix.


33) The Reverend's sermon tells the LEGO view of existence.


Before the world was only the table; the Constructor scissored open bag one and dumped out the universe, which led to the Time Of Great Sorting, color to color, shape to shape, and, of course, a pile of windows and doors on the side.

34) The LEGO bible says that all people are made of "Acrylonigrile Bydiene Styrene," or plastic, for short.


35) Hymns 1x6 and 2x4

36) Rehab World (why is this not a thing in real life?)


37) The big LEGO competition is "Brickstock"


38) Milhouse builds a LEGO Bart with a pathetic LEGO thought bubble


39) Comic Book Guy builds a LEGO version of Keendah Wildwill, the heroine of "The Survival Games."


After Comic Book Guy goes into a diatribe about her being a strong female character, Homer asks him why he built her breasts so big.

40) The LEGO statue of Jebediah Springfield reads "A noble spirit embrickens the mini-est fig."

41) Elements Of Style: Fine Torsos For Men


42) The Plastic Surgery Center works on multiple levels.


Obviously the LEGOs are all made of plastic, but even cooler, there is a Before and After picture of a female LEGO in a red bikini where the only difference is that in the Before photo, she's frowning, while in the After photo, she's smiling. It's a great message about accepting you for who you are.

43) When Homer destroys a police helicopter, the cops place the wreckage in tupperware so they can rebuild it later.


44) Skinner has a ton of schools for Bart to build, because he always gets the same set for his birthday.


We've all been there, Seymour.

45) Behind Lisa's bed is a LEGO Bleeding Gums Murphy. RIP.


46) All Plastic Comic Book Guy has to do to go from good to evil is turn his face around.


Homer comments, "You're the bad guy? I thought you were the rule-explainer guy!"

47) LEGO Comic Book Guy is, of course, the ultimate LEGO collector, owning every playset, including classic pirate playsets and ninja playsets.


Homer calls the ninjas "Pajama guys."

48) Mecha-Bart is part "Spongebob Squarepants," part "Batmobile," part "Hobbit Hole," and all awesome.


49) "You're going back to where you came from: Denmark." — LEGO is based in Denmark.

50) Bart exclaims, "I'm a creative but undisciplined builder" when his creation breaks.


This is probably a bit of an homage to "The Lego Movie," which shows us two types of LEGO builders.

51) Homer vehemently denies ripping off the plot for "The LEGO Movie".


. Even as Emmett and Wyldstyle are seen behind him.

52) At the end, it's revealed the whole universe is 1 big playset, for Age 13 Billion+, and contains 10 80 pieces.


BONUS: "Hunger Games" Parodies

1) The books young girls read are called "The Survival Games," whose subtitles are "Braving Courage" and "Destiny Daring," and which star famed heroine Keendrah Wildwill.


2) Keendrah has to pick between two perfect men, Thayson and Joshuel (one blonde, one brunette), who will love her "even if you string us along forever."


To make matters worse, one is "dangerous but good-looking," while the other is "strong but super cute."

The Simpsons says kiss my flat plastic butt to reality in the Lego episode, Brick Like Me.


The Simpsons’ “Brick Like Me” episode is one of those highly anticipated episodes that scare me. It’s a milestone episode, number 550 and it’s also a tie-in to a popular movie. What’s worse is that it’s a real kids’ movie, The Lego Movie, and it was paid for, brick by brick, by The Lego Corporation. Lego has been courting The Simpsons for years, creating a Lego Springfield a few years ago and The Simpsons have been flirting right back, with a Lego couch gag.

I’m always wary of episodes that feature guest stars (or 3D Tron realities) on The Simpsons. I don’t mean the guest stars who are playing a character, I’m talking about the ones who play themselves. Sometimes The Simpsons team can get their guests to poke fun at themselves. Other times they pander. And when The Simpsons panders it’s not always pretty.

But not here. Here it’s a Lego universe and the Simpsons only live in it. But they make themselves at home. The Simpsons lose nothing in welcoming the Lego demographic. You can barely tell that they’ve made it ever-so-slightly more kid friendly. The series still heaps subtle scorn on religion, ridicules about The Hunger Games by saying, “oh when to they get to the part where they kill the children?” and Homer and Marge really let themselves fall apart during sex in a joke that went by much faster than I thought it would. Sometimes faster isn’t better, as I learned from Mad magazine (RIP Al Feldstein).

“Brick Like Me” opens on Marge’s smiling face and immediately shows the possibilities of working with Legos. Homer pulls off Marge’s hand. It works as both an establishing shot and as the setup for all the gags to come. When the bedroom is destroyed and Marge’s hand looks lost, we immediately see how easily things work out in Lego Springfield. As Marge says, “Everything fits with everything else and no one gets hurt.” This frees the Simpsons team of their already free animated reality, bullies can be disassembled and reassembled at will, an entire school can be rebuilt by a 12-year old.

The construction of Springfield is minutely detailed. It better be, it took two years to make this episode and Lego donated thousands of building blocks. The entire boulevard is now lined with shops that reflect the Lego existence, detailed below. Even Marge and Homer’s wedding picture is lovingly recreated. The Love Tester game at Moe’s is now color coded according to Lego Bricks. There are some great details, like the shine on the Lego-Springfieldian’s head’s, like plastic reflects light. The meshing of Legomation and animation doesn’t only happen during the shared realities. Small details that are un-Legoable, like the skunk and Homer tossing down a beer, are animated, not Legoized.


The Simpsons have a few themes that run through the program. In “Brick Like Me,” the writers choose the most positive: That Marge is Homer’s one redeeming quality and that he’s always trying to win the love of his daughter. Homer and Lisa’s relationship is probably the most complicated on The Simpsons. Homer’s repeated attempts to bond with Lisa make him a great dad. One of the best on TV. I mean, he spent a whole day at work making a mini brewery for her Brickstock construction that really brews. He never stops trying, no matter how much he’d rather be doing anything else. And he’s an honest father, he tells Lisa the truths behind parenting. (And fiction in The New Yorker.) Namely that he’d rather be doing anything else. Homer has always been more honest with Lisa than any other character. He might collude with Bart, Marge may love and abet, but Homer never candy coats reality with Lisa.

Without giving too much away: Of course Comic Book Guy is the catalyst. The twist makes perfect sense because Comic Book Guy is a collector. He is the imagination that is unleashed by Legos. It is also perfect that it is Bart who is most attuned to Homer in his time of need, in a Lego nutsack no less. I particularly liked the refitting of the Bible myth to Lego parameters that prove that religion can’t be true.

The Simpsons, as I’ve pointed out before, are very self-referential and self-aware. They’re a cartoon. They know they’re a cartoon and they wink at the audience by making jokes about being a cartoon. Here the Simpsons make fun of the never-aging nature of animated characters by pointing out that Lisa will never really age. They make the audience know that they’re self-aware as Lego creations too. As Abe points out about Homer, “He’s a freak. Take him apart and leave the pieces under the couch.”

So, I came in wary but no, it’s a good payoff. Not jam-packed with jokes this time, but no misfires. On a show like The Simpsons, as long as it’s been running and with so many jokes packed per animated cell, we forgive a lot of misfired jokes. Overall, the balance is always tilted toward funny and they didn’t lose their subversive core. “Brick Like Me” has no groaners. It will be considered a classic, yeah. Not my favorite classic, but it is already memorable, lest I forget, and satisfying. In five years, fans will instantly recognize “the Lego episode.” It was strangely exhilerating. Everything fit and no one got hurt.

“Brick Like Me” was written by Brian Kelley. The Simpsons stars Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson, Groundskeeper Willie and Principal Skinner, Julie Kavner as Marge Simpson, Selma and Patty Bouvier, Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson and Nelson, Yeardley Smith as Lisa Simpson, Pamela Hayden as Millhouse. Hank Azaria plays Comic Book Guy and Moe Szyslak.

But It All Went By So Fast: Springfield Businesses: Lard Fig Donuts, The 99-Stud Store, Brik-E-Mart, H&R Brick, First Brick of Springfield, Brick Block and Beyond, Adult Blocks.

At the Android’s Dungeon and Baseball Card Book Shop: Posters – Block Runner, Radioactive Fig, Block Go Comics, Books – We Can Build You, the Minfig in the High Castle, UBRICK by Philip K. Brick, Beyond Lies the Stud, Do Minifigs Dream of Plastic Sheep, A Scanner Blockly, Sort my Pieces by Philip K. Brick. The ad on the back of the zine Comic Book Guy is reading is for X-Ray Specs.

Moe’s Love Tester: Red 8X2 with slanty part and hinges, Orange 6X2 brick with holes, Yellow 4X2 flat, Blue 3X1, Grey 1X1. Hats and Hair game.

Church – Hymns 1X6, 2X4. Jebediah Springfield Statue: A noble spirit embiggens the miniest fig. Elements of Style sells fine torsos for men.
