The White Stripes' appearance on 'The Simpsons' has surfaced online.

The duo were animated for the long-running US show, and join Bart behind the drumkit in a parody of their Michel Gondry-directed video for the 2003 single ’The Hardest Button To Button’.

In the clip Jack White and Meg White get angry when Bart's drumkit collides with theirs, leading Jack White to complain: "Hey kid, watch where you're drumming!" while Meg White is out for revenge, declaring: "Let's kick his ass!"

The clip can be viewed on at the moment.

The episode, which aired in the US this weekend, fulfilled a long-held ambition of the band.

In March 2003, Meg White explained: “A guest appearance would be amazing. I wouldn’t want to be in a Lisa episode. They’re kind of boring. Maybe a Homer one would be better.”
