The Lego Movie is dominating theaters now, and soon the toy building bricks will invade your television sets too.

Fox announced today that it will air an all-Lego episode of The Simpsons on May 4 at 8 p.m, meaning Homer & Co. will become a different kind of yellow. The story revolves around Homer finding himself in a world where Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and the rest of Springfield’s residents are made of Lego pieces. The logline of “Brick Like Me” asks: “Can he ‘put together’ how he got there and somehow figure out how to get home before he is stuck in a world of bricks forever?”

The animated comedy has broken form before in smaller doses: For example, Katy Perry performed with Muppet versions of the Simpsons in a Christmas episode and Homer found himself in a new dimension during a “Treehouse of Horror” segment.

The Simpsons returns to the air with two new episodes on March 9, starting at 7:30 p.m.
