The White Stripes are set to guest star in The Simpsons.

Duo Jack and Meg White will provided their voices and appear in an episode in the new season of the long-running cartoon.

Appearing alongside Homer, Bart and co has been a long-held desire of drummer Meg White.

"A guest appearance would be amazing," Meg said in March 2003, adding, "I wouldn't want to be in a Lisa episode. They're kind of boring. Maybe a Homer one would be better."

First, Marge takes to the bench and dispenses justice with a firm hand... and a plateful of fudge, in "Judge Marge!" Then, the Simpsons win an all-expenses-paid trip to Bosqueverde, a remote Latin American country, only to find themselves in the middle of a military coup in "¡Viva Bart!" And when Homer captains a "Love Boat" of adventure and romance, his passengers will soon be "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'." Add in a "turn of the century" fair, Malibu Stacey, 10,000 packets of irradiated seeds, a very bad case of hayfever, Hank Scorpio, one prodigal son, Doctor Colossus, an epic search for kitchen curtains, and a masked brigade of vengeance seeking shopkeepers, and you've got one gut-bustin', side-splitting, spine-bursting, page-turning collection of Simp-sational comedy!
