‘The Simpsons’ Pays Tribute to Hayao Miyazaki


With Hayao Miyazaki announcing that his latest animated feature, The Wind Rises will be his last feature, Studio Ghibli fans can take comfort in the following news. This Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons titled “Married to the Blob,” will provide some momentary relief as the show pays tribute to the master animator himself, with a special opening sequence. The episode follows Comic Book Guy’s attempts to go on a date with a Japanese woman who is writing an autobiographical manga. Getting drunk on too much snake wine, Homer wobbles into a hallucinatory state of mind, populated by some of Miyazaki’s best-loved characters. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
