"Simpsons" Hometown Is Vermont's Springfield

Simpsons Movie, The picture
"The Simpsons Movie Springfield Challenge" deemed Springfield, Vermont the winner following the town's triumph in drawing in most votes in the competition.


The America's favorite dysfunctional family finally find their real home in Springfield, Vermont.

Gaining 15,367 out of 109,582 votes posted on USATODAY.com for "The Simpsons Movie Springfield Challenge", the town triumphantly beats out thirteen other like-named cities to come out as the winner of the competition and subsequently becomes the host of the flick's premiere held on July 26.

Most voters clearly took their favors on the video submitted by the residents of the region, shot by a seventeen-year-old volunteer cameraman, showing buildings with "Springfield" in them and featuring Homer, played by a Burlington talk-show host, running through the town chasing a big, pink, rolling doughnut.

The smallest in population among the communities entered, Springfield, Vt. initially was not part of the contest, but thanks to a local Chamber of Commerce executive's appeal to the 20th Fox Century, the small town ultimately could have its way to join the race.

"We're so excited," Vice President of the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce Patricia Chaffee commented. "We came in at the last minute, and for us to win, we feel like the underdogs, which makes this so big and so great for us."

In response to the winning, Governor of Vermont Jim Douglas also expressed his delight by immediately issuing a statement congratulating the town.

"This is an exciting, exhilarating moment for Vermonters," he claimed. "Perhaps more importantly, it proves there's really nothing a giant doughnut can't do. To all the other Springfields, I say 'Don't have a cow, man'."
