Barça's Twitter administrators posted on Wednesday a sneak preview of what the team’s superstars look like once they've been 'Simpsonized'.
So far Neymar, Messi, Xavi and Iniesta have received the cartoon treatment, the latter being given a lighter shade of yellow to match his paler skin.
Six more Barça players are expected to be picked to form part of the team's Simpsons merchandise.
Other top clubs that have joined the cartoon craze include Chelsea, Juventus, FC Porto, Boca Juniors, Corinthians and Zenit.
Real Madrid fans shouldn't feel left out, as their star player Cristiano Ronaldo was actually made into a Simpsons character as part of a Nike ad.
In the skit, the current Fifa Ballon D'Or holder rings Homer's doorbell to then nutmeg him.
With the World Cup set to kick off in Brazil this summer, The Simpsons' scriptwriters have put together an episode in which Homer is recruited as a ref at the tournament to then be pursued by gangsters trying to bribe him.
