There is one episode in South Park titled “Simpsons Already Did It”, and the episode depicts how Simpsons had  mocked and covered about everything there is in pop culture that is worth covering.

So, there is no need for more introduction, they’ve been on the air for almost 30 years, they are awesome and  below you can check how they’ve turned some iconic historic photos into colorful, funny parody.

Check them out:

The iconic photo of the embracing couple Nick and Bobbi Ercoline  at Woodstock appeared on the soundtrack album that immortalized them at the legendary festival.

Simpsons recreated the iconic couple in a bit different perspective in the sixth episode of The Simpsonstenth season,  where Homer becomes a hippie after a revelation about his middle name.

Simpsons mocked the iconic photo of  President Truman holding the infamous issue of the Chicago Tribune in the nineteenth episode of The Simpsons’ second season when Bart decides to run for class president, and becomes the overwhelming favorite.

Bart unexpectedly loses to Martin in the class president race, and a picture of Martin holding up a copy of The Daily Fourth Gradian with the headline “Simpson Defeats Prince” is taken, which in turn ends up on the front page of The Daily Fourth Gradian under the headline “Prince Beats Simpson”.

This is a reference to the famous picture of former President Harry Truman holding up a copy of a prematurely printed edition of the Chicago Tribune that proclaimed “Dewey Defeats Truman”, taken the day after his close victory over Thomas E. Dewey in the 1948 United States presidential election.

3. Betty Grable or “Bartty Gable”
