It Isn't Only The Simpsons That Can Predict The Future...

The creative freedom of animation allows cartoons to take their stories anywhere -- and more times than we could have imagined, many of these cartoons have predicted the future. Pokemon Go! Took the world by storm back in 2016. Well, back in 1999, South Park could see the rise of Pokemon coming and decided to take it on with the episode entitled “Chinpokomon”. The parody of Pokemon included everything from the toys to the video games. Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation from Bruce took the world by surprise back in 2015. Well, not everyone was surprised, especially the writers and animators on Family Guy. YEARS before Jenner announced she was transgender, Family Guy made direct remarks about the former Olympian. Nothing like modern technology to present an easier solution -- only to screw things up even worse. One example? The voting machine mishaps in the 2012 Barack Obama and Mitt Romney election. In real life, people were selecting a candidate like Obama, only to have Romney appear on the electronic voting screen. See how the Iron Man cartoon may have predicted a terrible disaster just a few years later.
Which show predicted the Pokemon Go craze? Which show featured the future of a scary movie franchise? And how was Inspector Gadget ahead of his time in more ways than we could ever imagine?! Time to break down these future predictions from favorites like The Simpsons, South Park, and Robot Chicken! Watch to see all these future predictions, how accurate they were, and what other predictions may take place down the line!

They don't "predict" the future. The creators are all 33rd degree Freemasons... privy to their plans and agendas for the public a long time before they pull the trigger on them.
Masonry degrees = Influence over the masses.
The world is a stage. Nearly nothing at all in TV is real (including politics and news). All an interactive scripted show. Welcome to life! Where everything you think you know to be true are intentionally misleading lies. So there's that...

FOX News is 100% fake news
In January 2016, Family Guy (Peter Griffin) suggested that everyone should invest in Bitcoin.
FOX News is 100% fake news
The Pokemon craze in the USA began in 1995, so South Park was really 5 years late.

There are so many things wrong with this video and I am going to go over a few
The concept of a dragon burning down a town has been around ever since the concept of dragons itself!
Back to the future also had flat screen TVs and video chat because these objects are just the progression of technology.
The Simpson's are poking fun at statements made by Donald Trump about running for president

The Ex-files writer Chris Carter, happens to predict (Wink Wink) that a small faction of our gov't, drones planes into the, well you know. So that an endless war will happen...

man, humans are a sorry-ass race. they are not PREDICTING events, they are orchestrating them. they are all illuminated freemasons controlling the narrative from behind the scenes. i know the replies i am gonna get from the zombies but lemme ask ya, if we were all treated equally whether a president or a pauper, if one were to say, send a tweet about a major crime, and then it happens a few months later....do ya think there might be a knock on the door???? oh wait, in the patriot act age they just bust the door open start shooting and then tell you they are the police/govt and there to help. wake up!! if this does not bet ya thinking why don't ya look into how on the morning of 9-11 people like mark walberg, borat, julia childs, edward james olmos, san fran mayor willie brown, SETH MCFARLANE, they all had miraculously made last minute change of plans and avoided 9-11 flights.

Talking about 911 conspiracies, you failed to mention the Supertramp Album called "Breakfast in America". The album cover depicts the view from an airplane window flying over NY City with the towers in the background. When viewed in a mirror you can clearly see the print as 911 over the twin towers themselves and it did happen while many of us were eating breakfast in America.
