The upcoming Simpsons Movie: What Springfield is the show set in?

Today’s blog as mentioned in the title is about The Simpsons.

After seeing on the news today that Springfield, Vermont won the rights to have the
premiere showing of The Simpsons Movie on July 21 (Coming out nationwide on July 27) I decided to write today’s blog asking everyone to consider which Springfield the show is set in. The film itself will even joke about this question indirectly as shown in the preview where Ned Flanders shows Bart that their town borders on Maine, Nevada, Kentucky, and Ohio. The hidden joke is that all 4 states mentioned have a town named Springfield in them.

There are over 71 Springfield towns across America but only 14 states with a town named Springfield participated in the contest and they are in the states of Vermont, Illinois, Oregon, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, Colorado, Nebraska, Michigan, Louisiana, and Florida. By the way for those interested the other 13 states will have screenings of the movie on Thursday July 26, the night before the official release day of the movie in their respective towns of Springfield.

For more information on the Simpsons Springfield Contest go to: (http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/simpsons-contest.htm)

Be sure to respond back with your theories on which state the show uses for the town of Springfield if you can.

That’s all for now.

  1. How can you forget Springfield, Virginia: The traffic congestion capital of the world.

    I wonder why that’s not in the contest

  2. It’s because they did not choose to enter into the contest.

  3. Oh, I see. Thanks for clarifying.

    I think Springfield would be a good one because it’s in suburia like the Simpsons and I think a Simpsons episode also eluded to West Springfield so that would have been good
