The Simpsons’ tribute to Studio Ghibli

The-Simpsons-Studio-Ghibli-Homage

When Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement last month, it was a sad month for the film industry and animation as an artform. But the animation house he co-founded with Isao Takahata, Studio Ghibli, lives on.

The makers of The Simpsons pays a warm tribute to the Miyazaki’s work in the next episode, which airs this Sunday in America.

The context of the scene, which you can watch below, isn’t exactly clear – Homer’s drunk as usual, but who’s the chap with him? – but that hardly matters.

The fun’s in spotting all the references to Studio Ghibli’s classic movies.
