Below, watch a sneak peek at a special tribute to anime, featured on this week's episode of FOX's THE SIMPSONS.

In the episode titled 'Married to the Blob,' Comic Book Guy realizes his comics are nothing if he can't share them with anyone. Then he meets Kumiko, a Japanese woman writing an autobiographical manga, and he seeks out Homer's advice on how to date her, ending happily for everyone.

The episode airs Sunday, Jan. 12 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Comic Book Legend Stan Lee and Award-Winning Author Harlan Ellison Guest-Voice.

The Simpsons continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything. As the longest-running scripted series in television history, which Entertainment Weekly called the "No. 1 Greatest American Sitcom." The Simpsons has become one of the most consistently groundbreaking, innovative and recognizable entertainment franchises throughout the world. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members, HOMER, MARGE, BART, LISA and MAGGIE, are television icons.

The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. HOMER (Dan Castellaneta) works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; MARGE (Julie Kavner) tries to keep the peace in her family; BART (Nancy Cartwright) is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; eight-year-old LISA (Yeardley Smith) is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby MAGGIE conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.

The critically praised series has been bestowed with numerous honors, including a Peabody Award, 28 Emmy Awards, 29 Annie Awards, five Genesis Awards and seven Environmental Media Awards. The Simpsons has been the subject of a hit feature film; created The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios; received a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame; was honored with five U.S. postal stamps personally designed by Matt Groening; was named the "Best Show of the 20th Century" by Time magazine; and, most recently, won Vulture.com's Sitcom Smackdown, earning the title "The Best Sitcom of the Past 30 Years."
