Simpsons matriarch Marge Simpson is gracing
the cover of Playboy magazine, becoming
the first cartoon character in
the publication's history.

The November issue sees the blue haired
mother of three posing on a chair with the
distinctive Playboy Bunny logo.

It marks the 20th anniversary of The Simpsons,
viewed as America's most dysfunctional family.

The move to put Marge on the cover is an attempt
to draw in a younger audience for
the soft porn magazine.

"We knew that this would really appeal to the
20-something crowd," Playboy spokeswoman
Theresa Hennessey says. It is not yet known how
much of Marge will be on show inside the issue,
but "it's very, very racy," editorial director
James Jellinek promises. "She is a stunning
example of the cartoon form."

Playboy owner Hugh Hefner is said to
be a huge Simpsons fan and

appeared in an episode in
the early 1990s.
