“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:

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…

The one episode where Lisa grows intelligent life in a petri dish (Treehouse of Horror VII) – is based on Outer Limits. First two episodes of the new 1995 version, called The Sandkings – in turn based on a 1979 George R. R. Martin novelette

Dammit all. I loved the Simpson’s as a kid and now even more because I can truly appreciate the humor I didn’t understand ad a child. The animation wasn’t wonderful, but the writing was top notch with a wit unmatched by most of all current shows (save for Rick and morty and older seasons of Archer).

But all of that goodwill is destroyed by each and every new episode of the Simpson’s. It’s tired, boring, unfunny, childish and needs to go away. So does family guy. That show was hilarious in its first seasons and then just plain evil and forced after it was brought back.
