“The Simpsons” showrunner Al Jean said the show’s prediction of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine in a 1998 episode is “very sad.”
“In terms of predictions, there are two kinds we have: The trivial, like Don Mattingly getting in trouble for his hair in ‘Homer at the Bat,’” Jean told the Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Thursday. “And then there are predictions like this,” he added. “I hate to say it, but I was born in 1961, so 30 years of my life were lived with the specter of the Soviet Union. So, to me, this is sadly more the norm than it is a prediction. We just figured things were going to go bad.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The animated episode he was referring to happened 24 years ago in a part of a show called “Simpson Tide.” It was after Homer Simpson accidently fires the sub captain out of the vessel of a nuclear submarine. The cartoon then cuts to a clip of Russia at the United Nations showing that the USSR was alive and well. Then-Russian leader Boris Yeltsin pushes a button on the desk, and troops and tanks suddenly descend upon the streets as the Berlin Wall is instantly resurrected, News18.com noted.
Jean posted a picture on Twitter Friday of the Simpsons family holding a Ukrainian flag and wrote, “Very sad to say this was not hard to predict.”
