Historical photographs recreated in The Simpsons

Over the years we have seen the re-creation of historical photographs in The Simpsons. Here are some of the most recognizable.

The Simpsons are, for better or for worse, eternal . If I had my way the series would have ended after the ninth season, or at least a little later when it was visible evidence that the quality loss was dramatic. It would have been a series improved over time and never waned, but what can we do. Part of the legacy of The Simpsons are its continuous cultural references, and today we aim toward it, to the historical photographs that were recreated scenes from The Simpsons at some point in the series.

When newspapers were left ready at midnight

Come up with the first, which leads these lines. It is 02×19 episode in which Bart aspires to be the chief of its kind to beat Martin Prince. Although it seemed that Bart would win by a landslide result, because nobody loses their voters he is responsible enough to go to vote. After the victory of Martin, this shows a newspaper front page with the headline “Simpson defeats Prince” (“Simpson Defeats Prince). It is a reference to the US elections in 1948, when Truman beat Dewey against all Forecast . The newspapers were left ready the night before, and there was no time to change the cover of the Chicago Tribune, saying, “Dewey Defeats Truman.” The photo of Truman smiling and holding one specimen was history.

The oath

Lyndon B. Johnson being sworn in as President of the United States, aboard Air Force One after the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 .


In 1963, John F. Kennedy was assassinated. After his death, Lyndon B. Johnson had to swear the office of US President aboard Air Force One. In chapter 4 of the fourth season, Homer Lisa enrolled in child beauty contest to try to increase their self-esteem. He eventually won after the winner was to be suffering an injury. Something similar to the way that Johnson became president. Hence the “tribute”. By the way, Marge attire is like Onassis, and the facial expression of Homer also has its counterpart in the original photo. The original photo is of Cecil W. Stoughton, the official photographer of Kennedy
