"800 billion dollars" was always my go-to line for a truly ludicrous amount of money because of this old Simpsons scene. I&S Studios was basically a stand-in for Disney. I don't know what they were worth in 1996, but even now this number is almost 4x Disney's market cap. It's a total fantasy number, I was sure no company would ever reach it while I was alive

Now it's less than a third of what Apple's worth
