True, but I haven't EVER heard them referred to as "Clark & Lewis!" With good reasons: from their military days, Lewis was the higher ranking: Lewis was a Captain, and Clark a Lieutenant. Also, Lewis was recruited by Jefferson to lead the Corps of Discovery, and he asked to bring on his friend, Clark, as his right-hand man.

Did awful on this one. Was it really established that the Simpsons live in Oregon? I thought the whole point of putting them in "Springfield" was that they could be basically anywhere. I remember a couple scenes that seemed to make a point of that.

Yeah, Springfield is canonically not located in any particular state. It is named after Springfield, Oregon, and it is based in part on Portland, but the show has consistently made jokes about its location being undetermined.

Agreed, In "The Simpsons," Springfield was a fictional city, and was not in any specific US state. Creator Matt Groening was from Oregon, and revealed that the Springfield in the Simpsons was named after Springfield, Oregon, but he did not say it was supposed to be Springfield, Oregon.

Matt Groening is from Portland, and he named the town after the town next door -- Springfield, Oregon. He was partly inspired to do so because the 50s sitcom "Father Knows Best" was set in a place called Springfield. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2127965/The-Simpsons-Real-location-Springfield-revealed-creator-Matt-Groening.html

I should also mention that the Simpsons' nuclear power plant is strikingly similar to the Trojan nuclear power plant in Rainier, Orgeon, which was demolished in 2006. Photos and details here: http://laughingsquid.com/trojan-nuclear-power-plant-demolition/#comment-7418

Springfield is the town next door to Eugene, not Portland.

I had the same thought. So the clue could more accurately say "Simpson's hometown that was named after this Oregon town" or something similarly clunky and awkward.

Exactly. It absolutely has NEVER been established what state they live in. In fact, in the Family Guy crossover episode when they come to the sign at the city edge Brian and Stewie have an exchange where they are about to refer to the state and Brian says, "I can't imagine we're allowed to say."

Might as well pile on. Matt Groening is from Oregon, but in the show, it is absolutely never established which state Springfield is in. The clue is (I assume deliberately) incorrect. "Based on" or "named after" would be fine. Saying that Simpsons live in Springfield, Oregon is as wrong as saying that the Bible says there were exactly three wisemen... another error Quizmaster refuses to correct.

The Simpsons are cartoon characters--so no, they don't live in Oregon.

I thought there was a contest to determine which Springfield the Simpsons lived in, and Springfield, Vermont won--therefore they got the premier of the Simpsons Movie to be at their little cinema.

Astoria threw me off, a lot of the Goonies was filmed in Cannon Beach, I think. at least the final scene with the big rock (Haystack Rock). Still should've known the answer though! Cool to see my home state get a mention!

One of the fun things to do in Portland is look for all of the Simpson inspired locations, such as Flanders and Lovejoy Street.
