Home of the Isotopes, Springfield A&M, and Blinkey, the world's first three–eyed fish! Birthplace of the Flaming Moe! The site of Krustylu Studios, the awe–inspiring Springfield Gorge, and a world–renowned box factory! O Springfield! What many wonders you offer up for our consumption!

From Our Editors

Ah, yes...Springfield. Where the grass is green, the skies are blue and the people are a brilliant yellow. If you look carefully through this book, you can find swanky South Street Southport, the Springfield Tire Yards, the Frying Dutchman, the New Bedlam Home for the Emotionally Interesting, Krustylu Studios, and, of course, the home of the Simpsons, Springfield's most famous - or perhaps infamous - family. The Simpsons Guide to Springfield is the first official guide to their hometown.
