I found it on this site in case you want to read about it and other states it may be located. But North Tacoma makes the most sense.

Here is a screen shot of Homer`s license. I think it`s from season 9/episode 14 titled Duffless. Homer gets his license revoked and they quickly show it. The state abbreviation is NT which obviously isn`t a real state and most feel it stands for North Tacoma. Apparently one of the producers had said in the past that this was the state that Springfield was in, but it was never made "official".

Matt Groening has completely SOLD OUT.
The simpsons movie is going to suck but everyone is going to see it because you HAVE TO.
Does it occur to anyone that the simpsons have been sliding downhill for the last 6 years?
If only this were the last nail in the coffin.

The location of Springfield can be depicted using this video. I don`t have an atlas nearby atm, so I`ll let someone else figure it out for now.

^ Out here most of our towns are so small that we don`t have mayors. So instead the towns people elect/hire town managers or administrators to fill that role. I guess that`s what we get for having the second lowest population in the States (last I checked).

More evidence for Kentucky....

When the sugar ban was in effect than Homer was helping smuggle sugar into Springfield there was a line where he was told they were going to get the sugar from "south of the border" and Homer replied "Tennessee?".

It`s Kentucky, as shown in the 128th episode spectacular. I think it was 128, at least...

I live in Vermont and we do have the nuclear power plant but no 7-11s errr Quick-E-Marts (that I know of). But I don`t get what the hype is all about. I remember seeing on the net a still photo from some Simpsons episode where Homer shows his drivers license and the state listed on it was North Tacoma.

This is all fine and good, but you know the comic book store owner? That guy lived in Springfield, Missouri (my town). He talked exactly like that, and my brother knew him pretty well. The store was located near the art museum, but when he died, he got turned into a hair salon.
Now, do I think that Springfield from the Simpsons is my Springfield? Of course not. We don`t have a power plant.

Aw man . . . and Illinois was so close.

I mean I don`t even live all that close to Springfield (I`m closer to Chicago . . . far west suburbs)but I`d like to have SOMETHING interesting about this state.

I mean . . . besides Chicago and Lincoln and all that.

:-/ Oh well.

Guys Springfield isn`t a map. Its in our heart, and our minds, making us laugh everyday! Sorry for the cheese.
Also in the behind the laughter, they say that Homer wrote the show, and the simpsons made albums which won awards...Its non-canon.

I lived in Illinois and even though it would be cool, I know for a fact that our Springfield is not the one. Please don`t say it is.

I`m in Vermont and it was crazy. It was all the headline on the online newspaper as breaking news. There are people being killed, huge storms, kidnappings, and their breaking news is that some movie`s town is now something to do with Vermont`s town with the same name.

Of course, I never did like the Simpsons very much... I don`t even know the character names. I have to say, I don`t see the big deal about it at all.

veryhardgame is correct. If you watch behind the laughter at the very end of the episode it says this small town family from kentucky.

The actual Springfield in the Simpsons is in nothern Kentucky. It`s revealed in the Behind the Laughter episode. I can`t believe people are still acting like it`s a mystery...

LIES! Episode #156 shows the Simpsons leaving Springfield, and there is a sign pointing to Vermont in the East. Unless there are two Springfield, Vermont s, this is ridiculous.

Real Springfield
