The funny thing about this is that the fake English has a Japanese accent.

She's not a little girl, she's a teenager.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2013-09-01

So is it just me or does the little girl sound French?

She's not a little girl, she's a teenager.

The Japanese study English in high school. In every anime where a foreigner speaks English everyone panics until "the smart one" speaks English back.

I think the joke at the end is that she doesn't like being called a little girl.

How people speak or act in America is a long-standing Anime trope. Just as we released some really racist stuff both during and after WWII, there were some animes that took a similar standpoint.

A famous manga (and later anime) for promoting multiculturalism while still managing to be rather incredibly racist was Cyborg 009. Every single cyborg was from a different country and tended to caricature as such.

The thing that always gets me about this clip is that it's intended for a Japanese audience, yet they bleep out the curse words which are spoken in english that few people understand.

"Fuck" and "motherfucker" are universally-known English swear words.

MrBuddy - 2013-09-08
Come to think of it, even 009 is a caricature of the Japanese isn't he?
(I'm not being sarcastic.)
