D’oh! ‘The Simpsons’ is Not From Springfield, Oregon

 

Simpsons Springfield town, Simpsons Springfield town not in Oregon, Simpsons hometown, where is Simpsons, Simpsons state, The Simpsons, state of Simpsons, Springfield

I knew it wasn’t that easy. After virtually every news outlet has reported that Matt Groening has finally come out to reveal the name of the state The Simpsons are from, TV Guide has now just come out with an exclusive report, basically saying, “Wrong!”

“I never said Springfield was in Oregon,” Groening says. “I said Springfield was the name of my sled.” Groening is responding to rampant reports that claimed he had suddenly revealed one of the biggest secrets of The Simpsons’ 23-season history. In an interview with Smithsonian magazine, Groening confirmed something that he had actually mentioned several times in the past: That he named the show’s setting after Springfield, Oregon.

OK, now that I re-read the other story, Groening did say he named the town after Springfield, Oregon. He didn’t say the family is from Springfield, Oregon. Technicalities. D’oh! Sorry, Oregon, for bursting your bubbles. And mine!
