Marge Simpson is about to do something Homer might not approve of.

The matriarch of Springfield's first family will appear on the cover of Playboy.

A cartoon character is a first for the magazine, which has had everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Cindy Crawford to the Girls of Hooters and even the likes of Jerry Seinfeld on the cover.

Marge and her pile of bright blue hair are set to grace the cover of the November issue. It will hit newsstands next Friday.

Marge isn't going to bare all, though, as the magazine says, there will be "implied nudity" in the three-page pictorial.

New Playboy chief executive Scott Flanders said the idea is to attract readers in their 20s to a magazine where the average reader's age is 35.
