Uh, they're not a prototype of anything. A prototype is "an original type, form, or instance serving as a basis or standard for later stages", or "an early, typical example". (The definitions were taken from an online dictionary.) Americans existed long before The Simpsons were created, so you can't call them a prototype. Maybe you meant "stereotype"? And of course they're mocking the Americans. That show mocks everyone. The mockery is what makes the show so damn awesome.
