Well I know alot of the members watch the simpsons so now we have a thread for it.

First question I have is regarding the episode that aired today (1-20-02). At the end they had a picture of Bleeding Gums Murphy and it said Dedicated to ... Well I couldn't read it fast enough and am wondering who it was its dedicated to? Did the person that did the voice of Bleeding Gums die or was it just part of the show. This is the sugar ban episode.

It went pretty fast, but I did see the name "Ron", but I don't recall the last name.

Well after some searching on the internet I have figured out that Ron Taylor did the voice of Bleeding Gums Murphy.

I'm not sure. I'm having trouble finding information about him. He was in a Deep Space Nine episode as well. But I dont know anything about that. I'm gonna keep looking for info on him.

It was also interesting to note that tonight they once again hinted that Springfield is indeed in Kentucky.

Even though it does not show him dying, check here:

Crankcase, it kinda ticks me off when people try to pinpoint the location of springfield. Think about it, it just doesn't work for any state because they've introduced so many facts about the state (like lets see, it'd have to be next to the ocean, but also next to a mountain range with a very tall mountain, it'd have to be large enough to be a thriving metropolis but small enought o only have one elementary school (well two actually, heh heh), it'd have to be neighbored by a city called Shelbyville and a whole long other list of things.
Can you tell I'm a simpsons geek? LOL

Matt's right. They live in an imaginary state that seems to move locations from week to week. For instance they need to be near an ocean but at the same time there was an episode where they were pointing on the map where they live and you could see all the coastal states.

it's large enough to need a nuclear power plant, but so small that they only need a handful of cops and only one police station.:)

they even have their own stadium, racetracks (cars and horses), and a few amusement parks.

What do you mean "They live in an imaginary place."?

Next thing you know you'll probably be saying "They arnt real people.".

And I suppose Hank Hill & wresteling are made up also.

Man, are you negative....

When I said an imaginary town i meant that it is a place that does not exist. I'm willing to bet that there is no town like that.

BTW it also has its own airport.

not only does it have its own airport, but its own international airport, with non-stop flights from springfield to paris, and from (whatever that country adiel was from) to springfield and back and forth.

Plus it was close enough for them to take a bus to mexico, and take a river raft into the ocean.

Thing is, in one show about a year ago, there was a narrator in one of those old clips/rehash shows and he said about the Simpsons " From this north-west KENTUCKY family" or similar line.

In the last show, They tell homer the sugar is coming from south of the border. He asks "From where? Tennesee? which shares the south border of Kentucky.

I know how they always try to tip off where they are, but this is the only time two states metioned match.
I think it should be a fake town too, and I don't normally care, but that caught me off guard.

**Also a Simpsons geek** :)

On the episode where the trash is overflowing the town or whatever happened a guy said "an old exam paper from Texas Tech" so it could also be near TX.
