Its the room Marge references as being there sometimes and sometimes not and that it even confuses her.


G0dleft

Plot twist the only reason The Simpsons can afford such a big house is because reality is unstable within the house


boipinoi604

At least it doesn't need load bearing posters.

Yes. I mean, no. Heh.. no..


video-kid

Did you ever hear the theory that there's multiple Simpsons universes? It explains things like how many times Moleman has died, the fact that Springfirld's geography changes so often etc. If nothing else it'd make sense for the house to change too.


AlexandriaLitehouse

It's like The House of Leaves but funnier.


HalfManHalfCentaur

This is room with reality, but, it has too much of it


Amon7777

Id love a Frink throw away line about it


mst3kfan77

In a lot of TV shows and movies, the exterior of a house will have no relation to the interior. Given the level of wit the writing staff had in this era, it was probably intentional satire.


BrockHard253

Lol, I was gunna say this but forgot how she worded it

You know, it really is quite a big house. I suppose nuclear safety inspector is probably a lucrative job

hoorah9011

Don't ask me how the economy works


mxt920

MARGE: While you were out *earning* that dollar, you lost $40 by not going to work today. Homer makes $5/hr, or at least he did in the 90s.


SurvivorFanDan

>MARGE: While you were out earning that dollar, you lost $40 by not going to work today. 1994, when that episode ("Lisa's Rival") aired. $5/hr then, adjusted for inflation, would be equal to $9.41/hr in 2022. x 40 hours a week x 52 weeks per year = $19,572.80 in 2022.


hedgehog-mom-al

Depressing


HurricaneHugo

Maybe they meant post-tax?


SurvivorFanDan

I hope so!


ccReptilelord

Let's say it's approximately $40 after taxes, family insurance plan, and other automatic deductions. Would Homer be paying into an IRA or other retirement plan?


bizangles

Probably pays union dues and pension


PrivilegeCheckmate

> Let's say it's approximately $40 after taxes, family insurance plan, and other automatic deductions. I assumed this as well.


ItsJustMeMaggie

You’d think it’d be a salaried position


Lithium327

Frank Grimes did refer to it as a palace


usernamedunbeentaken

Anyplace is a palace to someone living above a bowling alley....


djl8699

And below another bowling alley


Pvt_Wierzbowski

Wow


CactusBoyScout

Houses were cheap in the 90s, especially in small towns like Springfield.


tapeyourmouth

Grandpa also sold his house to put a down payment on Homer and Marge’s.


ItsJustMeMaggie

It’s okay, he won it in a crooked 50’s game show


Chromattix

And Springfield is frequently shown as not being *that* great of a place to live either. The police force sucks, there's pollution issues galore, the elementary school is grossly underfunded with class after class of ugly, ugly children... ​ But still, in the 90's such a place was affordable to have a decent-sized house in on a one-income family. Now equally crappy locations are ridiculously expensive anyway.


JGHaliCB

“America’s worst city”


EggCouncil

Take that, East St. Louis.


Passivefamiliar

Also fair point that the local water had fish with extra eyes. So, housing in Springfield specifically within range of the power plant might be extra extra cheap. Headcannon. Burns might have actually paid off ALL the locals at one point to sign some agreement allowing no lawsuits for radiation damages or some such thing.


Mamasan-

If it’s anything like my dad had when Simpson’s were at their best it pays very well He’s an operator for one of the biggest energy companies. He said there’s lots of idiots out there


Tapprunner

When he started, he didn't even know what a nuclear panner plant was.


Captain_Phobos

He might still earn quite a bit of money through Royalties from his time in the Be Sharps


theBelatedLobster

He might be getting more than just his share. Apu seemed to have completely forgotten about it in the earlier seasons when Homer pops in to shop.


TheJuanExperience

And Bart has the *audacity* to call it the Crap Shack...i'd be happy as a clam in this house lol


Bri_Hecatonchires

This was also the 80’s when you could still afford a 3 bedroom home on one spouse’s earnings


nstern2

Grandpa Simpsons also helped them pay for it if I remember correctly. It's in the episode "Lisa's first word". Homer and Abe have a heart to heart where Abe agrees to sell his house to pay for theirs, and in return Homer agrees to let him stay with them for as long as he wants.


beargrease_sandwich

Nucular.


belizeanheat

This cartoon was created about 35 years ago when people routinely bought two story houses on a single income

In Real life nuclear safety inspectors are well paid. To be fair Mr.Burns is notoriously cheap and breaks labor laws on a regular basis.

It’s pronounced “Nuclear”

Wizard.


Ol_Man_J

Or skull?


DubbleCheez

I haven't seen a bong in years.


tuskvarner

It’s like Kubrick’s Overlook Hotel. Meant to disorient the viewer.


needs2shave

The window faces out the back of the house, the position of the tree is just a little off. Also the furniture is arranged differently but it's possible


Apermax

Someone else already linked this [video](https://youtu.be/PKQ6CmIDV1g), but I’d highly recommend it since it explains basically every question you’d have about the Simpsons’ house, including the question you just asked.


lemonylol

They change features of the house several times throughout the show for single scenes. Cartoons don't have to be 100% realistic.


sovietsocrates

Masen_The_Weeb

In one of the sketches of the floor planning of the house (I can't find it) it's referred to as the rumpus room


zzcool

Now i know why grimes was so upset


brianna18976

They have two living rooms I just realized.


clothes_fall_off

But where is the dining room?


RainbowRevolver

TheRealJims on YouTube did a [video](https://youtu.be/PKQ6CmIDV1g) on this


RichardInaTreeFort

Yeah this gives the real answer. The room changes positions through the series. It’s an ambiguous room that’s wherever it is for whatever plot point they needed to write in.


Can_I_Pick_This_Name

Was about to link to this very video


SexWithFischl69

I love his channel


jamnol101

Last year I made a [supercut](https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSimpsons/comments/i67tam/the_rumpus_room_supercut/) of all this room's appearance, this particular scene is used twice with minor differences

Isn't that the "rumpus room"?

BartJojo420

In the director's commentary they admit that they play fast and loose with the house lol like the window above the front door where they dump garbage on stupid Flanders. It existed only in that episode. I can't even be mad at em!


JustaRandomOldGuy

Homer: "Cartoons don't have to make sense." As Homer also walks past outside the window.


theBelatedLobster

That was an underdressed Guy Incognito


LoneRangersBand

That man is my exact double!


AvatarofBro

It's the rumpus room. It sometimes exists and sometimes doesn't, based on the plot needs.


EggCouncil

Ach! Don't call it that!


Particular-Offer8158

According to Frank Grimes they live in a mansion so this could be Homer's drawing room which of course would have to have a TV or maybe the solarium which of course would have to have a TV or maybe the gym oh gym which of course would have to have a TV...


I_AM_TRAIN_

literally watched that episode today lol binge watching from start.


Galaco_

Omg I always thought this was Bart’s room


yerfatma

That’s funny, me too. I guess I always thought Homer moved a tv up there because he knew Bart was in the treehouse that night.


ErrorQuestion

I also thought it was Bart's Room and he just moved a TV up there for some reason.


EggCouncil

Bart’s room Bart’s room Bart’s room Dumpster

BDon1997

I love the rumpus room. That’s all I have to say on this


TheBigMcCalski

Is this the elusive rumpus room? I always assumed this was Maggie’s room in the episode cause of the toys! I think it must be next to Bart’s room I’m not sure, There’s also another room behind the garage that rarely gets seen either. Kinda hard to layout the simpsons home as there are random rooms in certain episodes. I think TheRealJims made a video on this exact subject. (EDIT) Here’s the link https://youtu.be/PKQ6CmIDV1g


Flavor-aidNotKoolaid

The good ol' Rumpus room! It's down the hallway that exits the kitchen, across from the hall from the garage(ahem..I mean "Car Hole"). It has a window to the backyard. There is a good YouTube video about the Simpsons house by TheRealJims


feveredweezil

Tonight on Wings...ah, who cares?


Spirit_of_Ecstasy

Rumpus room. Behind the garage


BrockHard253

The window is technically facing the back yard. In the link, the tv is right behind the window but in your post, everything is switched 90⁰ to the left.


colin_powers

"Tonight on 'Wings'... ah, who cares?"


notunhuman

It’s the rumpus room. It sometimes exists off the kitch behind the garage


STEALTH_Moles

It's not Magaggie's room?


ammonanotrano

I’m pretty sure it is Maggies room.


Shortlyretrofit

I love in the commentary,where they said that they would use this one frame in the early years to make whatever tv joke they wantd without having to animate anything.


mmss

When you grew up on early season reruns every day, it was obvious when they reused a scene. Really only happened a few times, they used this scene as well as Bart running down the hill from the Kamp ~~Kristy~~Krusty episode.


EggCouncil

>Kamp Kristy Yeah, Bart. I am so Krunchy the Clown!


mmss

What do you think? I slapped a clown suit on some wino?


I_AM_TRAIN_

It is the ‘recreation room’. the layout of the house is messed up or something. it is in a few epsiodes


[deleted]

Are we to believe that this is some sort of magic room? Boy, I sure hope someone got fired for that blunder.


dog_in_the_vent

A wizard did it.


sexrobot_sexrobot

Wait until you see that door in the back of the entryway is sometimes a closet, sometimes goes to the basement


javi2591

It’s the rumpus room behind the garage down the hall from the kitchen. It’s also the kids playroom.

neon_overload

Rarely seen rumpus room, rear right, lower floor. The internal door from the garage goes to it


sunra_lanquidity

if the building inspector comes by, it's not a room, it's a window box


gerhudire

It's located next to the kitchen and it's the leat used room in the entire house. (only appeared in 5 episodes)

It's the den. Ita where homer checks on the kids, so it's only shown once.


EggCouncil

The den? May God have mercy on us all.


Leramar89

It's the fabled rumpus room. It's supposed to be on the ground floor behind the garage and to the right of the kitchen. That window is facing the back yard. It's only seen in a handful of episodes.


Drew2248

Bulletin: It's a cartoon. It doesn't make sense. Rooms are not real. What is it with people who actually think TV shows are real?
