(Kimba the Jungle Emperor)
In a Simpsons episode about a tribute to 'Bleeding Gums Murphy' by Lisa Simpson, a reference is made to Kimba. What was the reference?
In the final scene, a stately lion appears among the heavens and intones, "You must avenge my death, Kimba... er, Simba!" It appears that even the animators of the Simpsons were aware of the obvious influence of Tezuka's work on Disney's The Lion King.
