Clues

The Simpsons is both the longest-running animated show and the longest-running sitcom in the world. It has become a cultural icon, with the characters used for everything from advertising to public health campaigns. In addition to the television show, there are numerous spin-offs including video games, comic books, T-shirts, cards, and novelties.


Mariner Fan generously gave me a wonderful Simpsons stamp that she carved for this box. To find out where the box is hidden, solve the puzzle below. The puzzle is a variant on a double-crostic puzzle. There are 23 questions concerning Simpsons trivia. When you fill in the answers, reading down the first letter of each word or phrase gives you the name of the town where the Simpsons Tribute box is hidden and the number of the highway you should take to get there.

Each slot for a letter in the 23 solution words and phrases has a number associated with it.

If you transfer the letter in the solution to the spot in the grid with the same number, the completed grid will spell out the directions to the letterbox.

It is easiest to work both ways, figuring out from the grid what some letters must be and using those letters to help you answer the questions, as well as answering the questions and moving letters into the grid.




After you find the Simpsons Tribute, be sure to hide it back in its place at least as well as it was hidden when you found it.

P.S. The grid is WAAAAAAY on the bottom of the page. I am not sure why LBNA puts it there, but keep scrolling, and you will find it!
