Jurassic Park

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

This article is about the list of references. For the film in the comic, see Jurassic Park (film).

Jurassic Park is a 1990 novel by Michael Crichton about a theme park where dinosaurs have been cloned and create chaos and destruction when certain things go wrong. In 1993 it was adapted into a blockbuster movie by Steven Spielberg and became the most financially successful film of all time, after Spielberg's previous releases Jaws (1975) and E.T. (1982). The success of Jurassic Park was so massive at the time that it spawned a fad around everything related to dinosaurs. Since then Crichton wrote more novels in the Jurassic Park franchise, while the film adaptation itself received several sequels. The franchise has often been referenced in The Simpsons, usually the 1993 movie.

References to Jurassic Park in The Simpsons[edit]

Picture Season Episode number Episode name Reference
Stampy Eye Window.png 5 098 "Bart Gets an Elephant" After Stampy is delivered to the Simpsons' house. When Marge opens the curtain, the elephant's eye stares at her. This is a reference to the scene in Jurassic Park where the Tyrannosaurus Rex peers through the car window to the children inside.
100 "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song" Principal Skinner tells Bart he's working on a novel about an amusement park with dinosaurs called Billy and the Cloneasaurus, which Apu rightfully condemns as plagiarism.
I&SL Jurassic Park Helicopter.png 6 106 "Itchy & Scratchy Land" The Simpsons are brought to Itchy & Scratchy Land by helicopter, just like the visitors of Jurassic Park. The image on the helicopter even resembles the logo on the Jurassic Park helicopter. Also like the film, the attractions in Itchy & Scratchy Land get out of control and create havoc.
Dinosaurs (Treehouse of Horror V).png 109 "Treehouse of Horror V" When Homer's toaster teleports him back to prehistoric times, the Jurassic Park theme music briefly plays as he says, "I've gone back in time to when dinosaurs weren't just confined to zoos". Additionally a Tyrannosaurus Rex similar to how they look in the films appears, with the same roar to boot.
Glasses shaking.png 10 208 "When You Dish Upon a Star" The water in the celebrities' glasses starts shaking when crowds of enthusiastic fans are coming near, just like the water in the paper cups when the Tyrannosaurus Rex approaches the tour vehicles.
224 "Monty Can't Buy Me Love" The Jurassic Park theme music plays as Mr. Burns flies off to Scotland to find the Loch Ness Monster.
Godzilla eye.png 226 "Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo" Godzilla peers through the airplane window just like the T-Rex did through the car window in Jurassic Park.
Los Souvenir Jacquitos.png 13 282 "The Old Man and the Key" One of Los Souvenir Jacquitos wears a Jurassic Park jacket.
22 478 "Angry Dad: The Movie" The film's theme music is played during the awards show montage.
Cretaceous Park.png 25 548 "Days of Future Future" Cretaceous Park is a parody of Jurassic Park, as well as a reference to most of the dinosaurs used in Jurassic Park being from the Cretaceous era. The board under the sign even says "Now Correctly Named".
WBT - Coffee Ripples.pngWBT - Albert Roaring.png 26 565 "Walking Big & Tall" Albert getting off his mobility scooter parodies the T-Rex scene from the films.
Geriatric Park title card.png 30 643 "Treehouse of Horror XXIX" The segment "Geriatric Park" is a parody of Jurassic Park. The helicopter passes over the gates of Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park 2, Jurassic Park 3, Jurassic World and Jurassic World 2. The song "Geriatric Park" is a reference to the "Theme from Jurassic Park". The Jurassic Park logo is seen on the jacket of one of the Los Souvenir Jacquitos.
The Hateful Eight-Year-Olds JP Brachiosaurus.png 31 683 "The Hateful Eight-Year-Olds" When Lisa finds Addy's horses, the Jurassic Park theme plays and a Brachiosaurus appears behind them.
