“Simpsons” Scenes and their Reference Movies [Updated]

by Joey deVilla on September 22, 2007

Update: Some quick notes:

  • I didn’t compile or make these images; I found ’em, thought they were neat and posted them for everyone to see.
  • You can find more images like this at Actualidad Simpson.
  • Yes, they’re stills and not scenes. Time was short when I posted the images and I used the wrong word. Anyone seriously incovenienced by that is eligible for a full refund.
  • Time was so short, that I posted a duplicate set of stills. There are only 66 in the set.
  • Time being short, I also didn’t post movie names. Feel free to identify them in the comments!

Here’s something for you film buffs who are also Simpsons buffs: 66 stills from various episodes of The Simpsons, each one beside the still from the movie scene to which they refer, courtesy of my friend Miss Fipi Lele:

Update: I’ve posted more Simpsons homages:

Yeah, you’ve done a great job here. Pity you can’t list the movie title alongside the image (for dummies like me!). Good stuff. Must of taken you hours!

I don’t know if anyone actually bothers reading all of these, but:

#22 with Mr. Burns sleeping is from the opening of Citizen Kane, I have no idea what this is supposed to be?


skip to about 3 minutes from the start and you have it

You forgot the episode where burns is shot and Lisa enters chief wiggums dream to hint at the evidence in the shooting. It’s a reference to an episode of the David Lynch series ‘twin peaks’.

What about when Maggie goes to the Ayn Rand Day Care and they reference The Great Escape. She even gets sent to the “cooler” and throws a ball against the wall of the crib. Also hilarious Ayn Rand jokes on the posters in the background “A is A” and “Sharing is Evil”

there are also a few more north by northwest references scattered throughout the series. for instance, in the episode marge gets therapy for her fear of flying…
