Fans create their own 'Simpsons' kitchen (Flanders not included)

Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton are no Marge and Homer, but they're certainly dining like the Simpsons. Mmm ... dining.

Serious fans of the long-running animated series, the Calgary couple is remodeling their kitchen to look like the one at 742 Evergreen Terrace, right down to the corn cob-patterned curtains.

"The Simpsons for me is actually a baby blanket," Hamilton told CBC News. "If I'm not feeling very well, if I'm depressed, if I have a bad day — I come home and pop The Simpsons on and I'm 10-years-old [again] and everything is all right."

They're saving up to purchase the avocado-green stove and fridge; in the meantime they're using brightly colored contact paper to get the appropriate effect. And once they finish? They joke about transforming the basement into Moe's Tavern.

In 1997, a full-scale replica of the Simpsons house was built in Henderson, Colorado, as the grand prize in a competition sponsored by Fox and Pepsi. Alas, the winner opted for $75,000 in cash instead.
