Top 15 Simpsons Prophecies That Actually Came True
With over 600 episodes, many bizarre and entertaining things have happened on 'The Simpsons' in the past 28 seasons.
However, what puzzles us the most is how the show managed to correctly predict the future in the real world over the years.
Many believe that the writers of the show are the world's best fortune tellers and that they've correctly foretold many major events. There was even an episode in which the show predicted that Donald Trump would win the elections! Take a look at these bizarre prophecies.
1. Presidency of Donald Trump
Maybe it sounded like some innocent fun and an impossible situation 16 years ago, but today, we're faced with the reality of it which The Simpsons correctly predicted!
2. It's as if They Were Able to Peek Into the Future
When Trump won, this comparison went viral and people were really confused.
3. So How Did the Creators Explain It?
Greany then stated: "That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane."
4. The Farmville Prediction
Aside from the VR aspect of it, the concept of Yard Work is extremely similar to Farmville!
5. Invention of the iPod
The device was seen in the episode "Bart After Dark," which aired exactly 5 years before the iPod's official release.
6. Future Technologies
In 1994, they predicted autocorrect so accurately, that they joked about Apple's dysfunctional programming.
7. Vegetable Mutations
Released in 1999, the episode showed us how radiation could be used to make mutated tomatoes that glow at night. In 2011, a Japanese study used radiation to create mutated vegetables successfully!
8. Lemon Tree Theft
A lemon tree was stolen in the fictional town of Springfield, and 8 years later, a similar tree was stolen from a garden in Huston, Texas.
9. Grease Thieves
In "Lard of the Dance," Bart and Homer conceived a scheme which involved stealing and selling the grease from Springfield Elementary.
10. Sigfried and Roy Get Attacked by a Tiger
Unfortunately, that prediction came true. The duo actually got attacked by a tiger 10 years after the show predicted it! Their show ended and Roy had sustained some serious injuries.
11. The One That Didn't Come True
The episode was released in 1995, but only half of this prediction is true because the Rolling Stones are definitely not in wheelchairs.
12. But It Gets Creepier: 9/11 Attacks
The price and image of the towers on the cover look like the date 9/11. The episode was released in 1997, several years before the tragic attacks.
13. Ebola Outbreak
The episode aired in 1997 and Bart draws a pretty shocking drawing of the apocalypse.
The strange thing about this prediction is that the book cover shows a monkey, and it is suspected that a monkey was responsible for carrying the virus into the USA.
14. And It Doesn't Stop There: They Predicted 3D Printing
In less than 10 years after the episode aired, 3D printing became a real thing, and people are especially fascinated by 3D printed desserts and other foods.
15. "Being Right Sucks"
In the opening credits of a recent episode, Bart writes "Being right sucks" on a board which is a direct allusion to how their prediction of Trump's presidency sixteen years ago came true.
