Jenevieve Johnson and her friends think there should be more Simpson-flavored fun things to do in Springfield.

  2. What does Springfield Oregon have to do with us?

    To quote an interview with Matt Groening:

    Claudia De La Roca: "OK, why do the Simpsons live in a town called Springfield? Isn’t that a little generic?"

    Matt Groening: "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."

  3. Is this seriously what we our building Springfield's future on? Wasn't the premiere of the movie like 7-8 years ago? Time to move on folks. Find something else that promotes a strong tax base accompanied by decent paying jobs.

    1. nobody is trying to build a future on this. Some friends are just having fun and giving - for many people who are coming through town because the history of the premier- something fun to see. Any ideas and efforts to promote a strong tax base and decent paying jobs are welcome!

  4. Perfect:
    Otto Mann will fit right in...... Quote from the web:
    "It has also been implied that Otto used other drugs like heroin and LSD (in "Homerpalooza", ...)"

  5. Can we please relate our town to something other then the Simpsons??! Has anyone actually seen the show? It's insulting to the town to be related to that cartoon.

  7. Hey, thanks for posting this article! It's been a lot of fun to watch people driving and walking by stop and smile at the sign and lots of people have been out taking pictures. We've even had a few kids up on our lawn poking their heads through the letters for a photo or two which was great. Feel free to do the same if you like.

    2. We had no idea - that was some real serendipity and their float was amazing! I'm glad it fit so well with the theme and made so many people happy. I know it's hard to believe reading these comments, but every time I'm outside I see someone smile or take a photo of the sign!
