Lego spokesman Roar Rude Trangbaek wouldn’t give any details about what characters would be included, but said the company hopes the series will “appeal to fans of ‘The Simpsons’ family.”

Lego, a privately held Danish company, has seen its sales soar in recent years after it started making series based on popular movies such as “Star Wars” and “Ninjago.”

“The Simpsons” has been on the air for 24 years, becoming the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program and a cultural phenomenon with colleges devoting courses to studying it.
