If it’s the Woodstock festival or the Americans leaving Saigon during the Vietnam war, almost every famous photo from the last 40-50 years, sometimes even more, has been mentioned or parodied by the Simpsons. Here are the best and most memorable moments of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and other Springfieldians doing their best to imitate real life.
A Window to Woodstock
Even at Woodstock, Abe Simpson didn’t really have fun.
One Way Ticket
Fleeing Springfield just like the Americans left Saigon.
Duff beer colliding and exploding just like the Hindenberg.
Millhouse doing his best imitation of a Frenchman crying as the Nazis occupy France during the second World War.
General Sherman or Nessie?
Each place has its own unique imaginary monster.
Lisa gets the Lindon Johnson treatment, while Marge acts as the widow Jackie-O.
Bart as Betty Grable
When Martin Beat Bart
The Elvis Connection
I don’t know which version of Elvis looks more ridiculous, the one with Nixon or the one with Mr. Burns.
Who really Built the Empire State Building?
The Spanish Civil War
Republican militiaman shot and killed during the Spanish Civil War. Since then, the photo by Robert Capa has been challenged for its authenticity.
