30 Times Cartoons Predicted The Future Better Than Any Psychic

#21 The Shard Building In London

A Simpsons episode called “Lisa’s Wedding” predicted the Shard Building in London 14 years before it was actually built – they even guessed the location pretty accurately!

#22 The Birth Of Autocorrect

Character Dolph was shown using a device called Apple Newton in a 1994 episode of The Simpsons. He tries writing ”Beat up Martin” only for the machine to turn it into “Eat up Martha”. After autocorrect launched in 2005, the creators admitted they referred to this episode when creating the product.

#23 The Rise And Fall Of Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus’ breakthrough and eventual meltdown was predicted by the creators of South Park in a 2008 episode called “Britney’s New Look”.

#24 The Death Of Osama Bin Laden

An episode of South Park that aired on October 13, 2010, showed Osama Bin Laden being shot by special forces – something that would happen in real life eight months later.

#25 The Fall Of The World Trade Center

A 2001 episode of Johnny Bravo eerily managed to predict the 9/11 events in a poster shown in the background. Four years before, in an episode of The Simpsons, Lisa was shown holding a magazine with a huge number 9 shown next to the Twin Tower. Even though it sounds a little far fetched, you have to agree that the coincidences are rather strong.

#26 Financial Crisis In Greece

Homer was a guest of a news show in a 2012 episode of The Simpsons called “Politically Inept With Homer Simpson”. A line on the bottom of the screen said ‘Europe puts Greece on eBay’ and three years later Greece became the first developed country to enter a debt crisis.

#27 Ebola Outbreak

A few days before the Ebola outbreak in USA, it was correctly predicted in a South Park episode called “Gluten Free Ebola”.

#28 First Generation Ipod

In a 1996 episode of The Simpsons, a device strangely familiar to the iPod was shown on a gate. Five years later, Apple released the first generation iPod.
