YouTube Animation Factoid

This intrigues me because it's a gauge of interest in the format.

... The YouTube home for clips from Family Guy, The Simpsons, and other animated staples of the broadcast TV network witnessed a sizable week-over-week increase in views of 712%. The channel ended up with more than 12.4 million views on the week and in the #30 spot in the U.S. thanks to The Simpsons tribute to master animator and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki. ...

So who'd have thought the big driver was gonna be this:
