The show has been known for its predictions like the Super Bowl, murder hornets to name a couple of the more light-hearted events.
“The Simpsons” has most recently been credited on social media for anticipating something not so humorous: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
A 1998 episode in the prophetic series called “Simpson Tide.” In it, Homer accidentally fires a submarine captain into Russian waters during a military exercise, prompting a newly resuscitated Soviet Union to deploy troops and tanks to the streets and instantly resurrect the Berlin Wall.
The troubling parallels were affirmed by “Simpsons” showrunner Al Jean, who tweeted: “Very sad to say this was not hard to predict.”
