Simpsons draw business to Springfield? D'oh!

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - A businessman says it's time for the city to embrace its most famous fictional residents.

Jack Koehler wants city leaders to create a shopping district with The Simpsons theme.

Koehler has a set of Simpson statues in front of his store, Sweety's Frozen Yogurt.         

Koehler wants the city to get involved, but Niel Laudati, community relations manager for the City of Springfield, says he doubts anyone wants to spend tax dollars to license cartoon characters.
