Cincy Gets Simpsonized

In case you missed it: The Simpsons, a classic American animated series, highlighted Cincinnati in the Sunday, November 29 episode. The plot follows characters, Principal Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers on their “800-mile” trip to Cincy.



The episode is decorated with local charms such as Skyline Chili and the Roebling Bridge. Our favorite Queen City monuments featured would have to be the flying pig statue, which we assume is a nod to The Big Pig as well as the Duke Energy Convention Center which hosts a large collection of ArtWorks commissioned pieces.
