The Simpsons Knew It Would Happen!
Remember the episode of South Park where professor Chaos struggles to find an evil scheme that hasn’t already been done on The Simpsons? Anything the poor guy tried to invent turns out to be done by the yellow characters of the famous show.
Back in 1989 when the first episode was shown, nobody could even think the TV show would become popular and loved by society. Now it hits season 30 as one of the highest rated animated series in history. However, fans find The Simpsons the most mysterious show as well. They have found tons of scenes that became a reality in future.
If you still have your doubts – check out our list and leave them all behind:
1. Donald Trump
Back in 2000, when Season 11 was running on TV, there was a cool episode 17: Bart to the Future. When Bart flashes forward into adulthood, viewers learn that Lisa not only becomes president but inherits “quite a budget crunch” from her predecessor, Donald Trump. “The country is broke?” she asks her aides in one scene. “How can that be?” did they actually warn us?
2. Election map
Even the presidential election map looked almost alike in 2000 Simpsons and in reality back in 2015. How could that happen?
In 1995 we could only dream of smartwatches, but the Simpsons have shown one in their episode. He shows jumped in a flash-forward episode to the wedding of Lisa and her fiancé just had one.
4. 13 Reasons Why (2017)
Yep, they are cool enough to predict films and TV shows. Here is the proof. Just look! Marcus and Courtney are at the back.
One of the most controversial moments in The Simpsons occurred when Lisa held up the front page of a newspaper. They knew it years before the tragedy.
6. Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance
In 2012 episode of “The Simpsons” called “Lisa Goes Gaga” appeared to predict pop star Lady Gaga’s halftime show during the 2017 Super Bowl. The costume and her dance were almost identical which is more than amazing.
7. Crisis in Greece
In the episode ‘Politically Inept, with Homer Simpson’, which first aired in January 2013, Homer appears on a tongue-in-cheek version of Fox News.
During his appearance, the news ticker shows a headline which reads: ‘Europe puts Greece on eBay.’ Three years on this off-the-cuff joke has become eerily true.
8. Pokemon Go
Although this might cause some doubts. What if the Simpsons simply inspired the developers? Season 14 episode “How I Spent My Strummer Vacation,” in which Homer and company go to a Rock and Roll summer camp – that’s where we see Pikachu on his phone screen.
9. Nobel Prize winner
Back in 2010, Milhouse predicted MIT Prof. Holmström would win a Nobel prize. 7 years later it happened for real.
10. Siegfried and Roy tiger attack
It happened in season 5, episode 10. The Simpsons parodied entertainers Siegfried & Roy in a 1993 episode called “$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalised Gambling).” Two musicians get terribly mauled by a trained white tiger during their casino performance. In 2003 this prediction turned real.
