We could easily dedicate an entire year on this blog to all the amazing jokes and references The Simpsons have made through their incredible 20+ year run and we would barely scratch the surface. That would mostly be because I am very lazy and would likely only write about 6 posts in that entire year. With that, I thought it would be fun to go over some of the amazing (near shot-for-shot) movie references The Simpsons have made. So why don’t we do that? Enjoy. The Birds Close Encounters of the Third Kind All The President’s Men Gold Rush Batman (1989) It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World Public Enemy Sorcerer Cape Fear
This is a great little chart depicting the height comparisons of DC Superheroes and Marvel Super Villains by Costume Collection. What did I learn from these charts? I am tall enough to be Batman’s sidekick or a female superhero and I’m not tall enough to be a villain anyone really knows. For those of you trying to figure out how tall I am based on these cryptic comments, let me just say I am tall enough to get on rides at theme parks…well…most rides. *You can see bigger versions of the pictures here and here.
Halloween is just around the corner which means Christmas is basically here and what better gift to get than Batmobile slippers available from ThinkGeek. The slippers are $50, but if you want to be cheap you can always hand someone nothing and claim they are Wonder Woman’s invisible jet slippers. Just a suggestion.
In the continuing journey of these bat-shit crazy (pardon the pun, I ate a lot of cheese) crossovers comes Batman and The Beatles! Well sort of. Actually, when this comic came out in 1970 I guess DC Comics didn’t actually have consent from The Beatles to be in the issue. So in true 70s fashion (I’m guessing, I wasn’t alive) DC simply stole their likenesses and renamed the band The Oliver Twists. I am assuming there big hit was ‘Twist and Yell Loudly”. The Plot of the comic was that one of the lead singers ‘Saul’ is apparently dead and Batman and Robin has to disprove it or something. The story line is clearly based on the whole Paul McCartney is dead rumor from years earlier. For more on this whole Paul is dead thing, please see this interview.
