Call it a D’oh moment.

The Hammers became the first Premier League club to appear on the popular American animated series. Yet, there was one small problem - the club’s colors were off. Way off.  

In the episode titled “‘The Day The Earth Stood Cool,” West Ham’s flag is colored green and not the club’s traditional claret and blue.

Ouch.

Despite the oversight, the Premier League club didn’t seem bothered by the error. “West Ham United were delighted to be featured in The Simpsons episode ‘The Day The Earth Stood Cool’ on Sunday!” the club said in the statement.

The Simpsons have broadcasted over 500 episodes in its 24 year run.
