12 Days of Simpsons, Day 7: Springfield is in Oregon…duh

Springfield....where?/Matt Groening, FOX

Springfield….where?/Matt Groening, FOX

Was there any doubt? “The Simpsons” series often refers coyly to the characters’ hometown, without divulging a state (one notable close call was when a character stated “Springfield, O….” and was cut off). We PNWers know that since “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening is from Portland, what the hey else would he be referring to?  Springfield, Ore.! People! Work with us here.

And the proof is now ironclad. The real Springfield (Oregon) is now home to a “Simpsons” mural, and Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa Simpson, was on hand to unveil it.

Want to search for your own personal Springfield? Tune in to the FXX broadcast (going on now!) of all 552 episodes of “The Simpsons.” There’s no better way to end the summer.
