Finally, I Now Can See All the Places Homer Simpson Has Visited!

Outside of Star Trek, I spent the 90's watching three shows on television. Seinfeld, Friends, and The Simpsons. Now, I may have seen other shows. But I have to stop and think about things. Was Farscape on in the 90's? I don't know, I loved it, but I don't associate it with that decade.

Hmmm... I guess the X-Files was a show of the 90's too.

Well, before I start thinking about this too much, I figured I'd share the infographic below, which I stumbled upon this past week. It's every place that the Simpsons traveled to across the globe.

I would point out, that the marks on the maps are only approximate locations. I live in Knoxville, and when the episode of the Simpsons aired, it did make a story in our paper. And our local historian wrote a story about the real references to the city the writers (probably) made.

But, it is about 300 miles east of where it's represented on the map.

I'm just sayin.

  1. I guess I didn't know before that you live in Knoxville? I should make a joke about gold.

    It's been SO long since I watched "The Simpsons." I loved it in its heyday, but that was a long time ago.

  2. I'm pretty sure Farscape was a 90s show... okay, never mind. I looked it up. It started in 99, but it's really a 00's show.
    I borrowed the first couple of season of Simpsons from someone, but even that was a long time ago.

  3. Briane - haven't seen it in 10 years or so since I've seen an episode. But in the 90's... I went bonkers watching it.

    Andrew - Yeah, the show has been on forever.
