‘The Simpsons’ Real Hometown Revealed!

After twenty something years of the whole world trying to guess what U.S. state The Simpsons hometown Springfield is in, creator Matt Groening finally revealed the biggest kept secret of all time. It’s none other than…wait for it… Springfield, Oregon! Dun dun dun.

According to LA Times, he tells Smithsonian magazine:

“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. 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.’”

Never thought this day would come. Being a huge Simpsons fan that I am, I myself have attempted to guess the real town, anywhere from Missouri to Ohio. I suppose Matt Groening finally feels like he’s been torturing us long enough. So what’s the next big thing we’re going to attempt to guess on the show? Will Milhouse ever get Lisa for good? 🙂
