    My point is if they wanted the show to be taken as an actual serious long run comedy and not just some here only for 1 season comedy then they would've given it a serious fake name not some crappy fake name

    Maybe there's more to the name, "Stool Bend". Besides it being where they live it could have a lot more significance. But then again it's only an animated comedy

    Calm down, it's not that bad. Besides There's no Springfield and look how succesfull the Simpsons became, besides no one is gonna judge the show because of the name of the setting.

    There's a Springfield in every state....

    There's no Quahog. I don't think there's a Langley Falls either. So, does it really matter?

    Langley Falls is named after two real Virginia cities. West Langley, and... something else.

    You mean, a "real" name like Quahog? Springfield in whatever state it is this week? Bedrock?

    You're absolutely right. Using a real name only adds to the longevity of the show.

    Why wouldn't they use a non existing name?
