Movie references in The Simpsons

A list of every film referenced, mentioned or spoofed in The Simpsons.

It includes narrative films, documentaries and shorts but no TV series or mini-series. The main source to make this list was the 'Connections' section in IMDb. Order is chronological.

This is a list under construction. I'm trying to update the description of every film that is referenced.

*Latest update: Season 6, Episode 8*

Not in Letterboxd:

- Bigfoot (1967) (Short)
S04E09. "Mr. Plow"
The reporters' video showing Barney becoming trapped begins with a spoof of this film's footage.

- The Mystery of Al Capone's Vaults (1986) (TV Special)
S05E01. "Homer's Barbershop Quartet"
Homer makes reference to the vault being empty while writing a song.

- H.M.S. Pinafore (1939)…
