The Simpsons pay homage to anime director Hayao Miyazaki

The Simpons pay homage to Hayao Miyazaki

Incredibly, The Simpsons turned 25 in December (how has it been that long) and yet it still seems to find ways to prove itself relevant through it’s creative, referential segments. Recently The Simpsons paid homage to the great anime director Hayao Miyazake and the incredible films he’s made over the last 35 years. It’s only a minute and a half but the team has managed to pack in references from Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Totoro – you name it, it’s in there. My favorite reference though is the Kwik-E-Mart turning into Howl’s Moving Castle.
