The search for the Titan submersible, operated by OceanGate Expeditions, continues and new questions have emerged amid the probe. However, amid the unfortunate incident, the world is unable to fathom the fact that the Simpsons has already predicted the missing Titanic submarine incident in 2006.
Now, a slew of fans have claimed that the cartoon show had already predicted the shocking incident in 2006 in an episode produced by Mike Reiss who took a trip himself in the missing Oceangate sub.
The classic episode of the show perfectly showed how Homer Simpson’s long-lost father Mason Fairbanks gives a speech about their mission before starting their expedition.
“Today I am filled with joy. Searching for treasure with my long-lost son. My dream for each of you is that you find the happiness I feel today,” he tells before descending deep down into the ocean with Mason explaining.
Towards the end of the episode, a low-oxygen light flashes on the screen and Homer begins to drift out of consciousness. As a result, he later finds himself in the hospital after being in a coma for three days surrounded by his family.
The missing submersible has sparked widespread concern and debate on Twitter and many have shared the viral clip from the cartoon claiming that the Simpsons predicted this incident.

The Titan submersible set out for an expedition to explore the wreckage of the sunken Titanic off the coast of Newfoundland on June 18. However, two hours later it lost communication.
The missing submersible was hosting a renowned British billionaire Hamish Harding and Pakistani tycoon Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, who also have British citizenship, on $250,000 tickets. Also on board is the company’s CEO, Stockton Rush, and a French submarine operator Paul-Henri Nargeolet, nicknamed “Mr Titanic" for his frequent dives at the site.
Meanwhile, ships and planes have scoured over 10,000 square miles of surface water for the submersible. However, no evidence of the lost submersible was discovered.
