Grimey: “My name’s Homer Simpson. I'm the worst worker in the world. Time to go home to my mansion and eat my lobster!”
Loved the ugly and cute versions juxtaposed.
Someone's been coddlin' the boy
Don’t look at me! I wanted to eat him!
RIP Grimes Jr
Pinchy woulda wanted it this way
Yeah, but look at the size of this place! I... I live in a single room above a bowling alley and below another bowling alley.
"Marge, change the channel!"
That’s our Homer!
Get drunk first.
And then he doesn't even have a job after season 14ish but literally nothing changes
I haven’t watched this show in 15 years and that’s the first line to pop in my head when I saw this post
The intro has lied to me for decades when the car shoots Homer through the garage wall and he lands on the couch.
The garage? Well, ooh-la-di-da, Mr. Frenchman
Well what do you call it?
I could never figure out if he says Car-hole, or Car-hold. Either one works. Car-hole is funnier though.
A CAR HOLE
Shit I thought it was Car Hold the entire time
I need to know what people are calling a garage!
Well, what do you call it?
To be fair, that's the VERY rarely seen rumpus room
I was just thinking when I was looking at this how the writers must have forgot that rumpus room existed.
Did that ever happen in the intro?
I had to go back and watch it, Homer pulls in and gets out of his car, Marge pulls in and Homer gets scared and runs through the door and then into the room with the couch. I thought there were some where he flies through the door and leaves a Homer shaped hole and lands on the couch but my memory is notoriously bad.
Yes, both happen. I think it's the more recent episodes where he leaves an Homer shaped hole.
Ever since the HD intro was introduced in 2009 Homer has been a victim of vehicular manslaughter and the door needs frequent replacing.
Eventually there will be more episodes with the HD intro than the original.
The interior is not consistent. Sometimes there's a dining room that's not in this design
its in the right side of the stairs
Ah good eye, I didn't notice that
Owwww, my eye! My doctor said I'm not supposed to get dining rooms in it!
Lisa needs braces
Only the baby sleeps in the criiiib
And the rumpus room that sometimes exists. The layout of the house is definitely not consistent. The bedrooms move around too.
I watch simpsons for a long time but I never saw the rumpus room episodes.
Season 2 episode 21 is the scene where homer is watching tv in the rumpus room and the storm is outside
I hope somebody got fired for that blunder!
I see you are a man of culture as well
Same. I never knew about it
It’s only featured in, I believe 3 episodes.
I think the top right room on the ground floor is that rumpus room
I too just watched that episode today
That video starts by immediately listing the bottom floor rooms while ignoring one of the 5 rooms then asking multiple questions, all of which are either about the second floor or would have been answered by including the room they excluded. Also that room is included in the OP image, right next to the kitchen, where it always is. Sometimes kitchen scenes show the hallway off of which both the rumpus room and the basement are connected. I dare say the simpsons house is one of the most consistent houses on tv, but is not perfect.
I'll watch the rest of that video now, but starting out so weakly isn't a good sign.
This is the first time I've ever heard it called a rumpus room.
It's there, right beside the kitchen in front of the door to the garage.
This... This is a palace! How in... How in the world can you afford to live in a house like this, Simpson? Look at the size of this place! I... I live in a single room above a bowling alley and below another bowling alley.
You’ve been to the moon?!
Suuurre, you’ve never been?
A dreamhouse, two cars, a beautiful wife, a son who owns a factory...
and a little girl who wears pearls
You wanna see my Grammy award?
The Simpsons are super wealthy. Homer is a safety inspector at a Nuclear Power Planet. Homer has almost every single time of famous award. Marge and Bart are accomplished artists. They're constantly winning random prizes. Homer and Marge have BOTH have multiple successful small businesses they ultimately stopped to be with their family. And dont forget the treasure behind the painting.
So. Ya. The Simpsons are flithy rich but act poor..
Also have you seen the [gold](https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQcC3Kw3ThjdMGUwdtoccIg0cGMxzh0l44Tvw&usqp=CAU) in between the ground and first floor of their house???
The plot thinckens
You mean upper-lower-middle class types.
I’d classify them as high income but not wealthy.
Three living rooms in a single income household. Sheesh!
Grandpa sold his home so Homer could buy a bigger house for his growing family.
Homer promised Grandpa he would always have a place with them.
Three days later Homer had him put in an assisted living facility. Not one of the crooked ones they saw on 60 minutes, but it doesn't have much more to do than stare out the starin' window.
Maybe Grimes is from the future secretly sent back to introduce fusion before it's too late but Homer doomed the future by driving him to insanity by his stupidity.
I just read an article on how there are now zero locations in America where a single middle income family with 3 kids could now live Simpsons quality of life
As stated before- Homers job in real life would pay much more than middle income.
His salary is canonical, and if you disagree show some real world evidence that supports your claim. I for one very much doubt it. He is supposed to be a low level employee, and while for comical effect his station supposedly controls the whole plant that’s not meant to imply he is a prominent engineer.
For example, here’s a current Glassdoor salary estimate for a whopping $36k. Some other quick googling suggest more like $70k, but some postings are in the $50k range. Pretty solidly middle income
Not to mention added expenses; Lisa needs braces
A nuclear operator safety technician in Springfield easily makes 6 figures. Most of your non-navy postings are $50/hr.
$50 hourly works out to JUST barely six figures. Also, it’s abundantly clear their power plant is underpaying employees compared to the national average. I’m down to get as pedantic as possible. Dude has 5 dependents.
> I'm down to get as pedantic as possible
I love you, beautiful genius.
In the Midwest, low 6 figures can pretty easily get you a large house with enough to spare to support a family of 5. I don't really watch the simpsons, so I don't know if there is a specific location it is supposed to take place, but 300k would buy you a 3 thousand square foot home, which isn't too far off from what's pictured here and could easily be paid for with a 100k salary, even after all the family expenses
But he makes $42k... per the article... which was the point
Not sure what article you are referring to. But even making only 42k, it wouldn't necessarily be impossible for the math to still work out. A mortgage payment for a house that size could be under 1k a month depending on where you live / what kind of down payment you have. Again, I don't really watch the simpsons so I don't know what kind of lifestyle is represented in it, but there are tons of families living on less than ~25k a year after taxes and rent/mortgage. It's definitely a tight budget, but it's also not living in poverty
> Dude has 5 dependents.
Marge and the three kids depend on Homer, but Abe surely has his own retirement money. He was a highly decorated war veteran who bought Homer his house.
If we chalk the house up to inheritance, and assume the cost of living in the small backwater town of Springfield is very low, then $50/hr should be enough money to keep Marge in pearls while still needing to worry about how to pay for Lisa's braces.
Abe lost his farm home in the 60s and was nearly destitute, but won a home on a game show. He sold that home in part to give homer a $15k check for the down payment on 742 evergreen terrace, homer placed him in the retirement home. I was wrong though, there is little evidence that homer is directly supporting Abe financially
The article gives homers adjusted income as $42k, the $50 hourly cited here is an uncited figure and besides the show makes it abundantly clearly homer is underpaid anyhow. The Simpsons lose the house in fact due to inability to pay, and Ned buys it (for $100,001) and leases it to them.
Bro, Middle class for a single individual starts at 50k. A family of five at 36k would be almost federal poverty line.
Lets not forget all the money Homer made from his groundbreaking barbershop quartet, The B-Sharps!!!
This place has windows
I can’t afford it
Wow, I had mustard!
I dunno. Don't ask me how the economy works.
What are the property values like near a nuclear power plant?
that episode changed television forever
In any other country you'd of been dead long ago.
He's got you there dad.
Do you sleep in a race car bed?
Homer was always portrayed as some lazy loser. Despite having a stay-at-home wife and three kids, this dude was able to own a 4 bedroom house with a huge lawn. Plus he was able to provide for the needs and wants of each member of the family. Shit, dude wasn't a loser, he was a fucking hero.
Stupid, lazy and terrible at his job - yet able to comfortably provide ample housing and resources for his entire family entirely on his own salary. The quintessential boomer.
Meanwhile I am smart, hard working and good at my job yet can't even afford a place just for myself.... while also being luckier than a lot of people.
What went wrong.
We all have become Frank Grimes essentially.
I *do* have a briefcase and a haircut...
Adjusted minimum wage has dropped continuously from the mid 70's, college became a requirement and costs about 4 times (adjusted) what it did around thr 70's. Boomers got huge advantages and kicked the ladder every chance they got for 30+ years. Average median family income should be about $115k right now adjusted from the 80's. It's $68k. We work as hard as them for 60% of the pay.
So all that is what happened.
Oooh, that's good. I'm saving that. Thanks!
"Just learn to code bro"
No, no, you're all just lazy! Work hard like I did and you can afford your entire college tuition, board included, by working maybe 2 summers tops! A single one of you live near college already!
You forgot one of the most important ingredients: be a cartoon.
In the new Simpsons his a Millennial. The mans an anomaly now.
Stupid like a fox!
His job was provided by “project bootstrap” apparently put in place by president Ford. Homer was no hero, he was stupid lucky. It’s even [in the dictionary ](https://imgur.com/a/Vw69o5V)
That's why in his office he covered Burn's sign that said "Don't forget, you're here forever." With pictures of Maggie and now it says "Do it for her." He took the job he hated for more money and gave up working at a bowling alley to provide for his family.
My dudes got a FORMAL living room.... if that ain’t peak money idk what is
$101,000. I wish I could buy a like this house for that!
In 1989 when the show came out, that wasn’t too far off. My parents bought a 3br/2bath around the same time for about $85k in a Midwest suburb.
*West Virginia has entered the chat*
Take me (to cheap) home(s) country roads
Thanks I’m making this in the sims
What’s the room behind the garage?
Also- two bathrooms on the top floor but none on the main? Poor design
The rumpus room. Sometimes it’s there and sometimes it isn’t. They joke about it on the show.
I wasn’t sure I knew what that room was either but my brain was just like “must be the rumpus room” so that info is locked in my brain somewhere!
It only appeared in like 1-3 episodes :0
Wow! It’s amazing what kind of useless crap gets trapped into my brain but I can barely remember last week!
Yeah. I hear ya. I can tell my wife all the details of a memorable meal from 5 years ago, but can't remember names of customers by the end of the phone call.
Old-school Simpsons trivia is jammed into my brain like a crayon, but everything else struggles to stay put
It's in the episode when bart, milhouse and martin buy a radioactive man #1
Isn’t it normally replaced with the dining room?
Edit: wait never mind I see the dining room now, it’s just out of view
The "rumpus room", it's not featured often but it always makes it into these fan designs
I think the small, square room directly right of the kitchen is a half bathroom.
Sometimes there's a half bath downstairs, sometimes there's a coat closet in the same place. Other times the area alongside the stairs leads directly into the kitchen. The design changes to suit the storyline at times.
Wish my house changed to suit my storyline too. :'(
It will as you get poor enough.
In an early Treehouse of Horror, the powder room has a window (facilitating Lionel Hutz’s escape), which it couldn’t in its usual interior location. Of course, nothing in a ToH episode is typically considered canon.
"[Though rarely seen, there is also a hallway off the kitchen leading to a recreation room.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Simpsons_house)"
This [youtube vid](https://youtu.be/PKQ6CmIDV1g) also goes into a lot of depth
There is a small bathroom at the back of the Garage on the left. You can just see the tiled shower and faucet handles.
There is a half bath on the main floor. Patty and Selma hot boxed it with cigarettes when homer had the house littered with smoke detectors.
I know plenty of houses with two bathrooms on the top floor and one on the main... how is there poor design?
Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, a majority of multi-level houses that I’ve been in only have one bathroom on the main floor (for guests) and the rest on the second floor (for residents).
Edit: I’m dumb, your comment says “none” not “one”.
Every time someone posts this, the same question. Not your fault: the show rarely showed it.
These were exactly my two thoughts.
But it seems there is a half bath tucked away downstairs and a "rumpus room" although I can't remember what episodes these were taken from.
I am amazed that they were able to lay out these rooms at all into any kind of coherent floor plan, period. When you watch enough episodes you start to see crazy fluctuations in the rooms.
It’s funny/sad how much more sympathy I feel for Grimey as I get older. Poor guy is basically the spirit animal of millennials in the work force.
A three story home with a garage and spacious yard. I have never seen this layout. Sadly it’s missing the basement but still very well done. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
Look at the right of the garage, end of the hallway
I see the stairs. I mean the basement diagram is missing.
True, but I don't really remember there being multiple rooms in the basement, so there really isn't as much of a need to show how it interacts with the other things on its level.
It's also missing the crawlspaces filled with skeletons and treasure that are occasionally shown when panning vertically.
If I remember correctly, there was a sauna and a beef jerky room in the basement.
Maybe even more.
Laundry and a giant Olmec type head mr burns awarded him in some episode.
Wait wait wait, what the fuck is that back room downstairs with another TV in? I've watched a decent amount of Simpsons and I have never seen that!
Jimmy jillekers it's Radioactive Man! /s
Great episode though, damn this show was amazing!
The rumpus room, it's rare but its shown a few times in the early seasons. It's in the episode where they buy the comic book of radioactive man number 1.
This layout is as correct as it’ll get.
There are often changes to the house according to what the plot/joke requires though, as outlined in [this thoroughly researched video](https://youtu.be/PKQ6CmIDV1g).
Ground floor top right. I swear I have never once seen this room.
That's the rumpus Room, its rarely shown but it's in the episode where they buy radioactive man number 1. Homer is in the rumpus room when Marge asks to check on the kids and the lightning hits the tree and Homer says they're fine
I thought the door to the basement was in the kitchen?!
Also, who puts the basement below the garage? The one place in the house where thousands of lbs of concrete and vehicles are directly on top of you. It would take a lot of support to hold up a garage above a basement.
And I thought there was a bathroom on the main floor (across from the main entrance at the end of the hallway).
Grimey was right, this is a palace.
I would say "most common layout" since it can change from episode to episode.
For example, in the Stonecutters episode when Homer is telling Marge about being excluded as a child, Marge says, in part, "kids can be so cruel." Bart is passing the bedroom door, hears that, takes it as permission, and then runs off and hits Lisa. The thing is, Bart heard it as he was walking past (right to left) the master bedroom and there is a wall directly opposite the bedroom door. That scene puts the master bedroom in the middle of a hall, not at the end of one like in the layout above.
Also in the movie. Bart manages to get from his room window to Flanders window. Via the treehouse. So Bart's room would have been the master bedroom with the treehouse at the side of the house.
Also that would mean that the treehouse would have to move from the back of the house to the side of the house.
The big red couch is both behind the garage and to the left of it. Is magic.
Never knew about the room next to the shower at the ground floor
It doesn’t appear often
3 bath 4 bed room house with a den, dining room and living room. Attached garage.
Simpsons were not poor.
A basement, Attic, whatever that room is behind the garage.
Sir, I am in your debt
How many living rooms does one family need? Also, the master bedroom? Why is it so huge
The power plant job must pay well. Nice house for one income.
I was just thinking this! Aren’t the Simpsons poor? I can’t get nearly this much house for $600,000 in my area!
You can easily pay this house, just go 35 years back in time
These mfers got 3 living rooms
I swear I have never seen that room behind the garage in any episode.
I looked at this way too long
Having watched the first 16 seasons of the 31 on Disney + this layout makes perfect sense, and is still unsettling. Also, what is the room at the top of the basement stairs--Grandpa's?
Subject to change
Is this hurting anyone else's head?
What’s that room on the other side of the garage? Have we ever seen it?
It is the secret room from [Three Men and a Comic Book](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Men_and_a_Comic_Book) (Season 2, Episode 21):
Is there one for american Dad?
Is it just me or Rick And Morty's house shares a kinda similar layout ?
I thought they put the kitchen upstairs and got mad before I realised that I am actually just an idiot
someone make this into a sims 4 house.
I always thought the basement door was in the kitchen.
Halloween horrors, toaster episode. And others.
Didn't remember a room behind the garage??
So is there no bathroom in the first floor?
master has a tiny bathroom while the kids get a really large one
I thought they have a dining room?
It’s to the right of the stairs
Is it weird that this hurts my head
THE CHILDREN HAVE A PLAY ROOM?!!?
Maggies bedroom? Or the den/rumpus room behind the garage?
Yeah. Homer is doing just fine for himself.
Union work pays.
Damn Homer can Afford all this?
Neat. Would be nice to have a higher resolution
That's a palace! How in the world can they afford to live in a house like this? I live in a single room above a bowling alley - and below another bowling alley.
Damn, Mr. Burns isn’t as evil and greedy as he’s made out to be. If Homer can afford this on his salary, then the Power Plant must pay WELL.
Lenny and Carl must be rich as shit. No kids, making all that money, and living relatively simple lives.... they must be loaded.
