Simpsons Movie References

A collection of films parodied by The Simpsons, including info on the episodes or episodes of The Simpsons that referenced each movie. Since its debut in 1989, "The Simpsons" has parodied thousands of popular films, ranging from one-off jokes or even brief, obscure allusions to full-on parody episodes. Some of these full-episode riffs on popular movies include "Cape Feare," a take on the Martin Scorsese thriller of the same name, "Rosebud," which redoes the plot of Citizen Kane with Mr. Burns, "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds," with Disney's dalmatians replaced by the titular canines, and "Marge on the Lam," which tackles Ridley Scott's controversial "Thelma and Louise."

Additionally, a number of individual Simpsons episode titles parody or send up movie titles or quotes. These include "Boy Scoutz 'n the Hood" (a play on "Boyz in the Hood"), "22 Short Films About Springfield" ("Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould"), "The Springfield Connection" ("The French Connection") and "Dumbbell Indemnity" ("Double Indemnity.")

A number of bloggers and TV critics have also pointed out how closely the show's animation has managed to mirror famous movie shots and sequences. Homer tumbling down the stairs takes on the appearance of the boulder crashing down after Indiana Jones in "Bart's Friend Falls in Love," for example. The field of children hurt by the Simpson family's trampoline resembles the shot of "Gone with the Wind" showing innumerable wounded Civil War soldiers. The Itchy and Scratchy short "Reservoir Cats" recreates many of the details from Quentin Tarantino's film "Reservoir Dogs," even reusing the song "Stuck in the Middle with You" from the film.

"The Simpsons" has become a cultural touchstone in many ways because it has consistently found funny ways to reimagine and reappropriate classic film characters, scenes and moments. This list compiles films that have been referenced by "The Simpsons" and the episodes featuring each reference.
