The Simpsons: A Cartoon That Keeps Predicting the Future

The Simpsons is a cartoon that has been running for over 30 years, and it is known for its sharp wit and social commentary. But what is even more impressive is that the show has a long history of predicting the future.

Here are just a few examples of Simpsons predictions that have come true:

  • In the 1993 episode “Marge in Chains,” a group of angry citizens demands a placebo to cure their illness. This episode predicted the opioid epidemic that would hit the United States decades later.
  • In the 1998 episode “When You Wish Upon a Star,” Homer Simpson suggests an idea for a movie to 20th Century Fox executives. The movie is about a talking mouse who becomes a famous movie star. This episode predicted the success of the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille, which was released in 2007.
  • In the 2000 episode “Bart to the Future,” Lisa Simpson is elected President of the United States. This episode predicted the election of Donald Trump in 2016.

While The Simpsons has not predicted everything correctly, the show has a remarkable track record of predicting the future. This has led some fans to believe that the show’s writers have some sort of psychic abilities. Of course, the writers have said that they simply try to be ahead of the curve and predict what the world might look like in the future.

Regardless of how they do it, The Simpsons’ ability to predict the future is one of the things that makes the show so special. It is a show that is both entertaining and thought-provoking, and it always seems to be one step ahead of the rest of the world.
