Get ready to witness time and time again how the Simpsons got it right, Absolutely SPOOKY, or Is it? Do you remember when Homer attempted to vote for Barack Obama in the general election of the United States in 2008 on “The Simpsons,” but a malfunction in the voting machine prevented him from doing so?

In 2003, one of Siegfried and Roy’s white tigers, Montecore, attacked Siegfried Horn of Siegfried & Roy during a live performance they were doing. The attack left Roy with significant injuries, yet he managed to survive it.
Mattingly winds up being sent to the bench because Mr. Burns’s policy on the acceptable length of a teammate’s sideburns was not adhered to. This truly took place in real life with the captain of the Yankees.
In 1991, Yankees boss George Steinbrenner gave Don Mattingly a fine of $250 and benched him for the rest of the season because Mattingly did not adhere to Steinbrenner’s regulation about the length of his hair.

In the universe of “The Simpsons,” it is revealed in the episode “Lisa’s Wedding” that robots have taken the role of human librarians.

In the episode from 1998 titled “The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace,” Homer Simpson is transformed into an inventor and is shown standing in front of a chalkboard with a difficult equation written on it.
