    Well obviously since Matt Groening's from Oregon.

    For a while I assume it was Illinois.

    For a while people had used process of elimination to determine it was most likely in Kentucky. Neat they'd explicitly state where after all these years.

    I kinda thought it was any-state USA.

    Oregon may have been the basis for the origional idea, but the currently there is just no way that any single states in the union would meet all the criteria given over the years of the town.

    He wasn't complaining or slamming the show (even if he did, who cares?). Nothing negative was said. Geez, dude...

    Uh, yes.. err no? I'm not really sure where you are going with that.

    Is this not the place on the internet where we talk about, deconstruct, bitch, whine, complain, praise and otherwise discuss another different cartoon?? When (and why) did this thread become any different?

    I guess Transformers is life, everything else is just a cartoon....

    Really, it's a moot point to determine where a fictional town would be in the real world considering the schematics and details known of the fictional town can't match 100% to a real world location.

    It's fine if the creator states where he feels Springfield would be in the real world, but there's not much point.

    Matt Groening is from Oregon and they are loosely based on his family. Makes sense.

    I would've much rather preferred the exact location to remain ambiguous.

    Can't say I'm surprised, but I still prefer it to be "North Takoma"

    Does this mean we're actually getting close to the end?

    As much as I gave up on the Simpsons, I found this article about Springfield on Wikipedia:

    Link (yes, there are Springfields in Canada)

    I only skimmed the article, but I don't think he said the animated Springfield was in Oregon. Just the town that the animated one was based on.

    Though one wonders - does this mean one of the many mountains around the city has the Ark wedged in it?

    Wherever Springfield really is, it's about 5 miles down the road from where it used to be. Look for the enormous pile of rubbish and a weeping native American.
