Matt Groening reveals the location of SPRINGFIELD

and its

Oregon

Matt Groening Reveals the Location of the Real Springfield | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian Magazine

Quote:
OK, why do the Simpsons live in a town called Springfield? Isn’t that a little generic?
Springfield was named after Springfield, Oregon. The only reason is that when I was a kid, the TV show “Father Knows Best” took place in the town of Springfield, and I was thrilled because I imagined that it was the town next to Portland, my hometown. When I grew up, I realized it was just a fictitious name. I also figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U.S. In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, “This will be cool; everyone will think it’s their Springfield.” And they do.

You’ve never said it was named after Springfield, Oregon, before, have you?
I don’t want to ruin it for people, you know? Whenever people say it’s Springfield, Ohio, or Springfield, Massachusetts, or Springfield, wherever, I always go, “Yup, that’s right.”

You'd think it was Tennessee when in one episode Milhouse said that Springfield was "Titans country" in reference to the NFL team.

What The Simpsons' Springfield Looks Like in Real Life

This one is pretty cool - Gizmodo went through the entire city to find out what the most important locations look like in real life.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~
