THE Simpsons will take the pride of place in a new postage stamp to celebrate their 20 years on the box.
The yellow-faced cartoon family will be immortalised in a set of five stamps to be released in the US to mark their stretch on TV.
Mark Saunders a spokesman for United States Postal Services said: "The Simpsons are American icons, quite frankly.
"We're excited about it, and we think Cork will be, too. It's a great opportunity for us to reach a new generation of stamp enthusiasts."
The Simpsons stamps, designed by creator Matt Groening, will cost 44-cents each and will be on sale from April 9.
