Are you ready to get "Happy" for a brand new episode of The Simpsons starring Pharrell Williams? Well, we're all about to "Get Lucky" as we've got some sneak peek pics to give you a taste of what to expect from "Walking Big & Tall", which will air this Sunday February 8 at 8 p.m. on Fox. It will feature special guest star, genius songwriter, singer, production whiz and The Voice judge Pharrell, who visits Springfield and helps Lisa compose a new city song for the citizens of Springfield.

In between having songs dominate a full 12 months in Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," as well as his own "Happy", as well as Robin Thicke's date-rapey "Blurred Lines" which Pharrell-produced, he also featured as a judge on NBC's The Voice alongside Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. It's a wonder Pharrell has any time left for anything else in his life; but who could ever say no to a cameo in The Simpsons?

According to the synopsis on Fox, the episode covers two classic Simpsons storylines: Homer's weight and music. It reads: "When Lisa learns Springfield's anthem was stolen from another town she writes a replacement. Meanwhile, Homer learns the meaning of "Wide Pride."

As EW.com explain, the episode's plot is based on a true story involving a "Milwaukee TV station in the 1980s hiring a composer to write a city-pride song, and he ended up shopping the same song to other cities."

As longtime Simpsons producer Al Jean told EW, "Pharrell offers to write a new anthem for the town."

Better yet, one possible new anthem -- composed by episode writer Michael Price and Asa Taccone from The Lonely Island -- has just debuted.

In the clip the Bart, Lisa, Mulhouse, Nelson and the rest of Springfield's kids sing about the things that city doesn't have to recommend it, including the sinkhole, that they demolished the library, and that the hashtag #SpringfieldPride has never trended, along with other twitter things that are "not-trending" such as #C-Batteries and #TrustFoxNews.

They also list off some of the dubious advantages of Springfield. For instance, they've only had a hurricane once, nor has there been a circus fire "in months," and they haven't had small pox for seven years.

You can watch "Walking Big & Tall" straight from Springfield - where "their cops are easily bought and dentists all self-taught" - this Sunday Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
