Springfield Actually Not In Oregon, Says ‘Simpsons’ Creator
On the show this week, I told you that after 20 years, the state of Sprinfield was revealed.... Oregon! It was reported that Matt Groening, the creator of ‘The Simpsons‘, had declared in an interview with Smithsonian Magazine that the famous family’s home of Springfield was in Oregon, ending two decades of debate over what state housed America’s favorite animated town.
The only problem? That wasn’t what Groening really said.
“I never said Springfield was in Oregon,” Groening quipped in a new interview with TV Guide. “I said Springfield was the name of my sled.” According to Groening, he had mentioned this several times in past, but this was the first time it was misconstrued to mean Springfield is actually a town in Oregon.
Oh, well, sorry Springfield OR, no tourists for you!!!! lol
