Animation, both in film and on television, has long been regarded as a playful, subversive medium that often communicates counter-cultural messages. American animation demonstrates a longstanding tradition of questioning the dominant sociopolitical ideologies that guide American citizens, both at home and abroad. This book examines FOX''s animated television sitcoms, The Simpsons and King of the Hill and discusses the satirical strategies used in these series to make viewers aware of the difficulties that arise when we try to define ‘American culture'' in an increasingly global world. Factors that complicate attempts to name general characteristics and symbols that ‘sum up'' America and the American way of life, such as regionalism, immigration, and globalization, are explored in detail as they are represented and negotiated in these popular series.
