The following license plates which have been seen throughout various episodes of the Simpsons will have in some cases very obvious meanings, and in others much more cryptic meanings. Some appear to be dates, some appear meaningless, and generally we all have our theories :) If you come up with what you think might be a legitimate meaning, you can e-mail The Simpsons Archive at
