As BTC’s USD exchange rate settled Thursday from a Tuesday high above $30,000 to the mid-$29Ks, a Family Guy crypto meme started making the rounds on X.com:

A $100 investment in Bitcoin the day Peter Griffin said, “Bitcoin” on Family Guy would be worth $6,637.08 at today’s exchange rate. Apparently, the hit television cartoon mentioned Bitcoin very early on (Feb 2016.)

Here’s BTC’s ROI Since Simpsons did it in 2020

Asking Google Bard if “Simpsons did it first,” the large language model chatbot said:

“In the Season 31 episode “Frinkcoin”, Professor Frink creates a cryptocurrency called Frinkcoin. The episode aired in 2020, and some people believe that it is a prediction of the rise of Bitcoin.”

At first glance, it appears that Simpsons did it long after Family Guy on this one, Feb 23, 2020.

But still, any Family Guy fans who became Bitcoin investors with $100 that day could exchange their sats for $2,966 today and bag a 2,900% ROI in under four years.

Family Guy’s Bitcoin mention was remarkably early. Simpsons’ was later, but it also included a very subtle easter egg joking that the Simpsons creators know who Satoshi Nakamoto is.

Ok, Bard, When did the Simpsons Predict Bitcoin?

Bard did also mention a wild fan theory that the Simpsons predicted Bitcoin in early 1997:

“The Simpsons have been known for their many predictions over the years, and some people believe that they also predicted the rise of Bitcoin. In the Season 8 episode “My Sister, My Sitter”, which aired in 1997, there is a scene where Bart and Lisa are walking past a store called “Crypto Barn”. The sign in the window of the store says ‘A place for codes’.”

There was no Bitcoin to invest in back in 1997, but one of Bitcoin’s early supporters, Adam Back, proposed hash cash that year. More recently, Back has been very bullish about the Bitcoin price over the next year.

Bard Had Some Precautions for Investors Regarding Bitcoin

“Some people have joked that Peter Griffin is a financial genius, as his suggestion to invest in Bitcoin has turned out to be very profitable. However, it is important to note that Bitcoin is a volatile investment, and its value can fluctuate wildly. It is never a good idea to invest more money than you can afford to lose.”
