The Simpsons Tribute To Hayao Miyazaki

I haven’t watched The Simpsons in a very long time, over a decade at least. But this clip, where the animators pay homage to legendary Japanese animator/director Hayao Miyazaki makes me want to watch tonight’s entire episode, at the very least. There are so many references to Miyazaki films that the 1:24 running time seems to just fly by. Well done!

If by some chance you haven’t seen any of Miyazaki’s films, good grief stop reading and go get Spirited Away to start with. You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Is the entire episode Miyazaki themed? or just that clip?

  2. I don’t know, I didn’t see the episode. In fact, I don’t even know which episode it it. I could use Google, but that sounds like work…

    Ok fine, I checked. It’s from the episode “Married to the Blob” and it’s not an homage to Miyazaki, just that clip. This is the one with Ellison and Stan Lee cameos.
