A Funny Episode with Very Creative Animation,
31 May 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Married to the Blob is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and a ton of very funny scenes.I liked seeing an episode revolving around Comic Book Guy,he dosen't get his own episodes very often but when he does they're usually great and unique episodes,and this one is no exception.I really loved some of the creative animation in this episode,you could tell the animators lived experimenting with animation you wouldn't usually see on the Simpsons,and they were clearly big fans of Hayao Miyazaki.I also really loved comic book legend Stan Lee's two scenes on this episode,he is always gets really good cameos in Marvel films,and he got a great one in this episode too.Married to the Blob is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

Spurred on by Stan Lee,Comic Book Guy plucks up the courage to ask out a Japanese manga artist who stops by the comic book store.
