Over the years, people have noticed that The Simpsons seems to be successful with predicting the future, with many spotting events happening in real life which mirror events from the cartoon.
However, one of the writers, Bill Oakley, downplayed claims that the Simpsons could predict the future, saying:
“There are very few cases where The Simpsons predicted something. It’s mainly just coincidence because the episodes are so old that history repeats itself. Most of these episodes are based on things that happened in the 60s, 70s or 80s that we knew about.”
Either way, people have enjoyed spotting similarities between the show and real life events, and many take to Twitter to share their findings.
