The comedy toon is notorious for animating bits of news way ahead of them happening in real life. These include the 2014 FIFA corruption scandal, Lady Gaga’s performance at the Super Bowl, and Donald Trump’s presidency.
Adding to the shocking line of spot-on divinations is the show’s “prediction” that Disney would eventually purchase 21st Century Fox, a little rumor that eventually came true on Thursday.
A screenshot of a 19-year-old episode, which first aired on 8 November 1998, has resurfaced following the announcement.
The image shows the 20th Century Fox logo with the text, “A division of Walt Disney Co.,” stamped underneath.
Take a look at the eerie picture and see other snippets that have come true.
