The American animated show ‘The Simpsons’ is famous for many things, one of them being extremely accurate about future events. In all its years of running, the show has eerily and fascinatingly correctly predicted many future events that had not happened when those episodes aired but did occur many years down the line.

Often the predictions are on a funny or even bizarre end, like the invention of Facetime, Donald Trump becoming the USA’s president, Daenerys Targaryen’s manic rage in the last season of Game of Thrones.

There have also been instances when the predictions have been a little too real and sober than one would like. These include the prediction of the Travis Scott Astroworld tragedy or even the slight hints to the COVID pandemic that we are still experiencing.

The latest and most serious prediction though has recently been found when the show apparently predicted the invasion of Ukraine by Russia back in 1998.

The Simpsons Predicted The Ukraine Invasion?

A Twitter apparently was the first one to find out about this, posting about how in the 19th episode of the 9th season of the show called ‘Simpson Tide’ the Russian invasion of Ukraine had been predicted.

The episode was about how Homer Simpson after getting fired from the nuclear plant joins the naval reserve. It is there that during a military exercise he accidentally fires a submarine captain into the Russian waters.

This eventually leads the Soviet Union that had just come back to take action by deploying tanks and troops and rebuilding the Berlin Wall.

AL Jean, The Simpsons showrunner also commented on this saying it was not hard to predict that something like this would eventually happen. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter he said “In terms of predictions, there are two kinds we have: The trivial, like Don Mattingly getting in trouble for his hair in ‘Homer at the Bat. And then there are predictions like this.

I hate to say it, but I was born in 1961, so 30 years of my life were lived with the specter of the Soviet Union. So, to me, this is sadly more the norm than it is a prediction. We just figured things were going to go bad.”

He further said that “Historical aggression never really goes away, and you have to be super vigilant,” and added how “In 1998, when this clip aired, it was maybe the zenith of U.S.-Russia relations. But ever since [Russian President Vladimir] Putin got in, almost everybody has made it clear that he’s a bad guy and bad things are going to happen.”

On the other hand, Russian forces are steadily making their way into Ukraine’s lands with the situation just getting tenser and tenser.
