Popular U.S. animated comedy pokes fun at Japanese animation

The November 14 episode of the American animated comedy Family Guy, "Baby, You Knock Me Out," features a brief bit poking fun at anime. In the episode, protagonist Peter tries to convince his wife Lois not to quit boxing, saying that they're making money, which he needs "for bourbon and anime."

A follow-up shot shows Peter watching television and drinking. While watching, he says that "I just can't understand any of this. Everybody in Japan is either a 10-year-old girl or a monster." The full episode can be watched at Fox's official website for Family Guy in the United States. The scene in question begins at about 10:18.
