The REAL Springfield? Yep!

Ay, caramba! It's true, Springfield Oregon is the real inspiration behind Matt Groening's naming of his fictional town in the Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation's show "The Simpsons". Matt grew up in Portland, which is only a couple hours north of Springfield. In an interview with the Smithsonian Magazine, Groening revealed the details behind The Simpsons town name, and since it's a common name throughout the country he thought, "this will be cool; everyone will think it's their Springfield." But, Springfield, Oregon has the Official Simpsons Mural to prove it!
