Analysis: Are Cartoons Now Predicting The Future?

A 2016 Comedy Central cartoon depicts Kobe Bryant in a fiery helicopter crash.

The 20-series cartoon “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” premiered on Comedy Central on September 14, 2016 and lasted for two seasons, according to news sources.

Episode 8 titled, “End of Days” written by Grant DeKernion and directed by L. Todd Myers, appears to eerily foreshadow Kobe Bryant’s death with a scene ripped straight from today’s headlines.

In the 2016 episode, Kobe appeals to three of the main characters – Grover, Jamal and Milk – for help while still clutching two NBA trophies, after his helicopter crashes. In crass Comedy Central fashion, Jamal – voiced by Quinn Hawking, one of the show’s creators – says to Kobe: “Just pass me the trophies and we’ll pull you out.”

Kobe, appalled by Jamal’s response, disappointingly asks “Pass?” to the characters, upon which his helicopter blows up and he’s ingulfed in a ball of fire that ejects five championship rings that roll over to their feet.

Comedy Central and Legends of Chamberlain Heights have removed most references to this event from their social media plaforms, according to a media report. You can view multiple clips here on other websites.

Predictive Programming

Alternative media researcher Alan Watt who runs the Coincidence Theorist blog defines “predictive programming” as a, “theorised method of mass mind control,” whereby people are being conditioned, “through works of fiction, to accept planned future scenarios.”

Watt’s blog highlights many examples of “predictive programming” where celebrities and tragic events were referenced in art and pop culture prior to the actual events occurring in real life.

Take for example, Seth McFarland’s award-winning comedy Family Guy, which referenced the death of actor Robin Williams in an episode that featured a suicide plot line that aired on May 20, 2012.

Williams, years later, reportedly took his own life on August 11, 2014 by suicide, according to media reports.

People are being conditioned, “through works of fiction, to accept planned future scenarios.”

In yet another episode of Family Guy, which aired during Season 4 in 2005, baby Stewie is running through a shopping mall naked. Apparently terrified, he yells at the top of his lungs: “Help! I’ve just escaped from Kevin Spacey’s basement. Help me!”

In 2017, the actor Anthony Rapp publicly accused Spacey of sexual advances when he was just 14-years-old. Subsequently, numerous other alleged victims of Kevin Spacey decided to come forward with their stories of sexual abuse.

Kevin Spacey has denied all the allegations through his publicist and on his Twitter account and has not been prosecuted fully, to date, for any of the alleged abuses.

Watts refers to these unique circumstances as “the power of suggestion” whereby “using the media of fiction to create a desired outcome.” That desire he submits is to have a population that is conditioned to accept this reality and not to ask too many questions about the pre-planned outcomes.

Predictive programming is therefore thought to be a means of propaganda or mass psychological conditioning that operates on a subliminal or implicit level, according to alternative media personalities like David Icke and the controversial Alex Jones who both have been accused of peddling and profiting off of conspiracy theories.

Nonetheless, as information spreads about these seemingly odd coincidences that dominate our news feeds and social media platforms, the questions and curiosity will only increase as people seek the truth and want answers.

Answers that don’t fit comfortably within the MSM’s narrative and oftentime fall outside their scope of reporting.

Stay tuned to this developing story . . .
