Rockford is home to A LOT of cool things. From the Rockford Peaches, to Mrs. Fisher's Potato Chips, to sock monkeys, Rockford is the origin for a lot of cool stuff. And sometimes that can get us some recognition.

This year's Simpsons Christmas episode gave Rockford a huge shoutout. Santa asks young Mr. Burns what he wants for Christmas. He asks if he wants a Rockford sock monkey! Check it out below -


SO COOL! Thanks for the shoutout Simpsons. Will you be asking for a Rockford sock monkey this year?
