(AFP) WASHINGTON — Homer may not approve but in a publishing first, Marge Simpson, the housewife with the bluest hair on television, is set to show her devilish side as the cover girl on the November issue of Playboy magazine.
Playboy released a picture of the cover shot on Friday featuring Marge, star of the cartoon series “The Simpsons,” artfully concealed behind a chair in the shape of the iconic Playboy Bunny logo.
The magazine promises a story inside on “The Devil in Marge Simpson,” an interview and more pictures, including a centerfold pullout.
Playboy said Marge will be the first cartoon character to grace the cover of the magazine, which has featured movie stars, athletes and other celebrities through the decades in addition to the usual “bunnies.”
The November issue is a tribute to America’s most dysfunctional family — Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie — who are celebrating their 20th anniversary on television this year.
