If you are an observant fan of ‘The Simpsons’ then you will surely have noticed that there are many, many movie references scattered throughout the hundreds of episodes.
Take for example, the shower scene from Psycho, The Godfather horses head scene, The Shining’s axe and the door scene, not to mention the numerous Terminator 2 references, and the Sideshow Bob ‘Cape Feare’ episode is just one long homage to the movie of the same name.
Movie Simpsons Tumblr bloghas made these great collection animated GIFs to compare the scenes from the movies and show. So next time you watch an episode of the Simpsons see if you can spot any more of those movie references. Here are some of my favourites.
