20+ Times Cartoons Accurately Predicted The Future.

Some of us would love to be able to look into the future so we can figure out the winning lottery numbers or change a disastrous event in our lives or the lives of others. If we had that kind of power, we might even be able to save the world or make millions of dollars by becoming oh-so accurate psychics. But believe it or not, there were a couple of times when cartoons predicted the future perfectly, like who’d be president and what new type of technology would go on sale. So, check them out. We low-key run out of words on this one. Seriously!

#1. Game of Thrones

“Game of Thrones” fans were probably nervous about someone spoiling the show’s final season. But it turns out that “The Simpsons” had already predicted a major season 8 plot twist 8 years before it aired. Are the producers of this show a bunch of time travelers? It seems pretty undeniable.

#2. Siegfried and Roy

Siegfried and Roy are a duo of German-American entertainers who appear regularly with lions, tigers, and other animals. In 1993, “The Simpsons” aired an episode showing Siegfried and Roy getting mauled by their white tiger. Unfortunately, Roy got mauled by the white tiger, Mantacore, in 2003. Thankfully, Roy survived and fully recovered. Siegfried and Roy performed with Mantacore during their final show in 2010.

#3. President Donald Trump

No one could have foreseen Donald Trump ever becoming president, but “The Simpsons” did. In one episode of the unbearably long-running series “The Simpsons,” they aired an episode that showed a grown-up Lisa talking about President Trump and a supposed debt the government will inherit from his administration. Did someone tip off the writers?

#4. Higgs Boson

Homer Simpson predicted the concept of Higgs Boson, also known as the “God Particle.” In one episode on “The Simpsons," Homer wrote an equation on a blackboard that predicted the mass of the particle years. It was discovered in 2012 by physicists 14 years after the original episode aired.

#5. Smartwatches and Skyping

Smartwatches may be the latest rage today, but they were pretty much science fiction back in the 1990s. So, in 1995, “The Simpsons” showed certain characters sporting a Smartwatch on their wrists. Twenty years later, the Apple watch went on sale. Also, Lisa reached out to her mother and father via something that looks very much like Skype.
