'Simpsons' creator: Real Springfield is in Oregon
Where is Springfield? 'Simpsons' creator Matt Groening finally reveals inspiration in Oregon
By The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' One of the best-kept secrets in television history has been unmasked when "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening revealed the Springfield in Oregon as the basis for the hometown of his characters.

The admission came in an interview with Smithsonian Magazine (http://bit.ly/HqiT4E ) that was published online Tuesday.

Groening says he was inspired by the televisions show "Father Knows Best," which took place in a place called Springfield. Springfield, Ore., is 100 miles south of Groening's hometown of Portland.



Groening says he has long given fake answers when asked about the Simpsons' hometown.

The show has made a running joke of hiding the true Springfield's location. In one episode, daughter Lisa points to Springfield on a map, but the animated "camera view" is blocked by son Bart's head.
