The Sound of Thunder and The Toaster Simpson’s Vignette both share similar characteristics about the different results
that occur in the future if something is altered in the past. If an insect or a plant was destroyed in the past, then the
future will be changed as a product of that action. Also, Homer and Eckels were both told not to touch anything that may change
the future, they both thought that their actions wouldn’t change the future but they were wrong. Eckels and Homer both
came in contact with a T-rex and they both killed a prehistoric insect on accident. Both their lives were forever changed
since they went back in time.
