SIMPSONS CITY CONTEST
(2007-06-07)
(wgvu) -
SPRINGFIELD, Mich. (AP) - Does quaint, small Springfield,
Michigan really want to be compared to the fictional town of the
same name on The Simpsons television show?
Indeed it does. The community bordering Battle Creek has joined
15 other real Springfields competing to host The Simpsons Movie
premiere on July 27th.
Ay Caramba.
The show never has revealed the whereabouts of Springfield in
its 18-season, 400-episode run. That's led fans to obsessively
search for clues.
Michigan's Springfield hired a local filmmaker to produce a
video depicting its Simpsons Spirit.
But not all Springfields are clamoring to be the one chosen.
The Springfield, Minnesota city manager has said his community
doesn't want to be made a parody of.
