  • Moe's Tavern. Moe speaking.

  • Hi, I was hoping you could tell me what state Springfield is in?

  • Listen you! When I get a hold of you, I'm gonna' use your head for a bucket, and paint my house with your brain

  • Well that escalated quickly.

  • SSSSSSSHHHHHHH WWWWWHHHHHHEEEEETTTTTT

  • 00:00:11,700 --> 00:00:27,520 [Theme Tune]

  • Hello Internet, welcome to Film Theory!

  • The show that proves you can turn watching Netflix reruns into a job.

  • And while reruns are the only way to enjoy most of our favorite shows from the 90's.

  • Unless, you know, someone is eager for a quick cash grab based on brand awareness

  • There is one show that has hung on...

  • The Simpsons...

  • "The Simpsons" came out in a simpler time

  • A time when cellphones where the size of bricks

  • and the word "fleek" hadn't earned itself a place in the dictionary.

  • Speaking of the dictionary though...

  • Homer's catchphrase of "Do'h" was actually added a few years ago

  • And it's the common useage of the word 'meh' comes from

  • Crazy, right?

  • From the Kwik-E-Mart, the prototype of internet trolls...

  • The Simpsons is truely a cultural icon

  • And yet, after nearly 3 decades, of one HUGE mystery about the series

  • remains unanswered...

  • Where do the Simpsons live?

  • We all know they live in Springfield, that parts obvious...

  • But the state has always been a question

  • And this isn't by accident...

  • The show has taunted viewers for YEARS...

  • 00:01:26,160 --> 00:01:29,540 By giving information that would make it virtually for anyone

  • to determine exactly where Springfield is

  • Notice though, that I said, virtually impossible

  • because after sifting through the evidence

  • there is more than enough proof to deduce where the Simpsons

  • actually reside.

  • today we're closing the books

  • on one of prime time's longest running riddles

  • now hold on to your comment hand you walking Simpsons encyclopedias

  • i'm sure you just waiting to point out

  • there are tonnes of jokes and references

  • Matpat is so cool from Golden Marcus lol

  • in the Simpsons that contradict each other

  • what about that time in the Simpsons movie for instance

  • when Flanders says that the four states that border Springfield are

  • Ohio, Nevada, Maine and Kentucky

  • no such states does or ever could exist

  • well stupid sexy flanders

  • that's a fair point but here's the thing

  • the running jokes on where Springfield is

  • are mostly there to throw off would be theorists

  • so if we wanted to determine where Springfield really is

  • we need to look for evidence for when the show isn't joking

  • about the impossibility of its location

  • preference also goes to episodes that where older

  • both because they are less likely to present springfield

  • as a place that couldn't exist

  • and because many die hard Simpsons fans

  • consider episodes after season 9 to be non- canonical

  • because the show changes executive producers

  • got all that?

  • good because we have a mystery to solve

  • hehehehehehe

  • Hee Hee like Michael Jackson lol

  • since the Simpsons takes so much pride in never revealing its big mystery

  • haha

  • our best tactic to prove where Springfield is

  • is to work backwards and eliminate where it isn't

  • 50 states is a lot to cover so let's knock out a bunch right off the bat

  • in season 5 Bart wins a call in contest

  • that Springfield local radio station

  • and gets to choose between a grand price of $10,000 or an elephant

  • Bart picks the elephant hijinks ensues

  • and Homer gets stuck in the la brea tar pit

  • so what's this have to do with Springfield's location?

  • well the radio station Bart calls is named "KBBL"

  • and it is referenced in a number of other Simpsons episodes

  • from the first several seasons

  • so we can say that it is indeed a permanent fixture in Springfield

  • and not some one off joke a random writer came up with

  • why does this matter?

  • well in the early 1920's federal communications commission

  • established a system for radio station call letters

  • all states east of the Mississippi start with the call letters W

  • and stations west of the mighty mississippi start with the letter K

  • Springfield's KBBL thus could not be one of the 26 states eastof the Mississippi river

  • Minnesota and Louisiana are the exceptions

  • with stations starting with both K and W

  • so they will stay for now

  • but still there goes half the country in one fell swoop

  • how has no one figured this out yet? Seriously people do your research

  • then again maybe I've spoken too soon

  • because from here it gets a lot tricker

  • we get some good geographical clues from the season 7 episode "Bart on the road"

  • Bart manages to get a fake ID

  • rents a car for spring break

  • and ends up getting himself and his friends stranded in Knoxville, Tennessee

  • on the road from Springfield to Knoxville

  • the group drives through Branson, Missouri

  • stopping to listen to the smooth crooning of Andy Williams

  • and if you are wondering who Andy Williams is

  • don't worry people watching that episode at the time it was aired probably didn't know who Andy Williams was

  • cant read it
