Cartoon character Homer Simpson has been kidnapped in Malaysia and Hollywood is offering a reward of 1,000 ringgit ($A346) for his safe return.

Film studio Twentieth Century Fox announced the bounty after a 1.2-metre statue of Homer was stolen from a cinema display in a mall in the Malaysian capital.

Motion Picture Association country manager Nor Hayati Yahaya says it was one of a set of outsize replicas of the family being used to advertise The Simpsons Movie, set for release in Malaysia next month.

"This guy is really dumb, because he must know that in a mall there are lots of surveillance cameras," he said.

"We got footage of his car, plate number, his face, everything."

The New Straits Times newspaper published grainy closed-circuit TV pictures showing two men bundling Homer out of the mall before he was driven off in the boot of a car.
