The Simpsons Fans Discover Homer’s Real Age and It Turns Out He’s a Boomer

The Simpsons

We hope you’re sitting down because this new information about Homer Simpson is about to blow your mind.

Fans of The Simpsons have uncovered the real age of family the patriarch, thanks to a hidden easter egg in an old episode.

In a scene where Homer’s licence is shown, a close-up reveals his “birth date” and “age” — ya know, the one he’d have if the family actually aged.

In fact, the Duff beer fanatic would have turned 64 on May 12 2020, making him a baby boomer. Isn’t that just wild?

Back in January, creator Al Jean sent heads spinning when he announced that “if Homer is 39 he was born in 1980 which is when we said Bart was born [sic].”

So, that would make the only son of Homer and Marge 40-years-old. Talk about jaw drop.

Luckily for the Simpson family, age shall not weary them as ageing does not exist in Springfield, keeping them the age they were when the series began in 1989.

The Simpsons launched in 1989 and have had a whopping 31 seasons under its belt, with no signs of slowing down.

Most recently, the show made headlines for its predictive nature when fans suspected the cartoon had predicted the global coronavirus pandemic and murder hornets.

However, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former staff writer Bill Oakley said it was just a little bit of history repeating.

“I would say in general when people say The Simpsons has predicted something it is just that we were satirising real-life events from years before and because history keeps repeating it just SEEMS like we were predicting things.”

And when it comes to the coronavirus, Oakley says it was a “stretch” because it was based on past events.

Personally, we feel they are pretty spot on so we’ll keep a firm eye on the series.
