While no one knows exactly which real-life Springfield the show's setting is based on (hardcore fans reckon it's in Missouri), what we do know is that there's a house in Nevada that's been built to look exactly like The Simpsons' family home and, yes, it does look quite similar.

Built in 1997, the plan was for the house to serve as the 'grand prize' on a TV show called The Simpsons House Give Away, with the winner choosing between the property or a $75,000 (£55,673) cash prize.

Incredibly, the winner, Barbara Howard, chose the money.

According to reports from the Las Vegas Sun, the designers focused specifically on Bart's room and the famous living room, while also ensuring that the treehouse, barbecue and swing set were all present in the back garden.

As well as all that wasted detail, there are 1,500 Simpsons-themed props and easter eggs placed around the home, including Duff beer cans and those corn kitchen curtains.

Nineties TV was great, wasn't it?
