Springfield Massachusetts got a bit of bad news, or was it good news?
For years, Springfield Massachusetts was thought to be the inspiration for The Simpsons’ hometown. Well Simpsons creator Matt Groening put an end to those rumors when he told Smithsonian Magazine that the show is actually based in Springfield, Oregon! Matt grew up in Oregon, and felt it was the perfect fit!
Maybe not being the inspiration is a good thing! Doh!
