Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie animated in The Simpsons
New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords’ appearance on The Simpsons has hit the internet.
The Wellingtonians, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, recorded the episode in January which would screen later this year, but fans can now view part of the episode in a YouTube clip posted by Fox TV.
The Flight of the Conchords’ own hit US TV show ran for two seasons between 2007 and 2009 on the HBO network.
Clement and McKenzie were understood to have rehearsed lines with Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, over the phone from Wellington before recording in the United States.
Xena star Lucy Lawless and Jurassic Park actor Sam Neill are the only other New Zealanders to guest star on the show in its 21-year history.
