    Bob Newhart, a native Chicagoan and infamous Cubs fan, may have forgotten his "W" flag at home, but that didn't stop him or his grandkids from taking a DIY approach to properly celebrate their team's historic NLCS win Saturday night.

    "I'm in Seattle with my grandkids," Newhart tweeted. "I forgot my W flag, so my grandkids made me one. Isn't it beautiful! #GoCubsGo #FlyTheW."

    Newhart was one of multiple famous, die-hard Cubs fans who took to Twitter after the win.

    Actor John Cusack simply tweeted, "It's. Done."

    He followed up with a photo of himself and Kerry Wood "moments before it happened- and IT happened."

    “New Girl” actor and Evanston native Jake Johnson tweeted, "They did it!!!!! #FlyTheW @Cubs."

    Actor Joe Mantegna and Fall Out Boy and Wilmette native Pete Wentz were succinct in their tweets. "CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!," Mantegna wrote. "Yessss!!!!! CUBS!!!!" Wentz said.

    Then there was the moment Hillary Clinton found out the Cubs won.

    Clinton's press secretary Nick Merrill tweeted a photo of the Democratic presidential candidate looking at her phone totally shocked when she learned the Cubs were headed to the World Series.

    "That look when you cap off a day on the trail by watching the @Cubs cement their trip to the #WorldSeries. #FlyTheW."
