‘The Simpsons’ Sneak Peek: Homer Wanders Into an Anime World

“I am ruined by whimsy!” Apu declares in an adorable clip from this week’s episode of The Simpsons.

After drinking too much snake wine (and an aquarium), Homer finds himself in an anime style delirium that would make Hayao Miyazaki proud. Highlights include a walking Kwik-E-Mart, a cat bus and ghostly figures. The stylized sequence is a beautiful homage to the genre. The entire episode is an ode to comic books as The Comic Book Guy takes a wife. Comic book legends Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison guest star. Watch the sequence below, as well as interviews with Lee and Ellison about their roles.

The Simpsons “Married to the Blob” airs Sunday, January 12th at 8pm on Fox.
