In The Simpsons Episode "The Old Man & The Lisa", Monty Burns checks his stock market ticker tape machine after discovering his personal forune is not what he thought it was. It turns out that he hasn't checked it since about a month before the major stock market crash in October 1929. In the background you can see the ticker machine cupboard cramed with 70 years of tape.

Burns: Smithers, why didn't you tell me about this market crash!
Smithers: Um, well... sir, it happened twenty five years before I was born.
Burns:Oh, that's your excuse for everything!
