I understand some of the characters have specific accents such as Fat Tony or Apu. But does the Simpson family have an accent that you could identify with a certain area in the US?
My personal opinion:
- Marge seems East Coast. A nasslly NY thing – like she's going for a reprise of the Edith Bunker character from the 70s TV show All in the Family.
- Homer and Bart seem straight Midwest/Chicago to me, but dumbed-down; and Bart with the occasional SoCal vernacular.
- Lisa seems neutral; but if I had to guess I'd say East Coast boarding school.
