The Simpsons Movie Map Mashup
We've been posting up a storm about the The Simpsons' alleged locale. Forget the fact that USA Today and Fox Studios are claiming Springfield Vermont as the true home of Homer's clan, we all know that is just premiere promotion talking. And while creator Matt Groening routinely tells critics the fictional city is in a state bordering both Maine and Florida, we think we've got him pinned on the Simpsons's actual home -- Portland, Oregon.
Groening grew up in the City of Roses, and there you will find many landmarks taken from the city and replaced in cartoon form over the years. Not to mention, the many street names which are used for character names in the series. With a little help from The Simpsons Archive, we've created a road map to yellow-hued cartoon travel in the state of Oregon.
From Springfield Nuclear to vandalism in the name of Ned Flanders, if you are going to go on a Simpsons pilgrimage, might as well do it right. Also, we want your help in adding more Simpsons inspired locations to the map. Send your evidence here and we will magically turn it into a map point.
