If you're old enough to remember when The Simpsons was just a series of animated shorts on the The Tracey Ullman Show, you'll probably feel even older when you realise that as of this year the show has been on the air for a quarter of a century. And what better way to celebrate its success than by immortalising the characters as plastic over-sized toy potatoes?
Homer Simpson is the first of the family to be turned into an official Mr Potato Head figure, but since Fox seems determined to squeeze every last penny out of the franchise, it's safe to assume that Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie won't be far behind. And, at $US18 a pop, there's not much stopping the remaining rabid Simpsons fans from snatching these all up. [Entertainment Earth via GeekAlerts]
