In this day and age, the level of an individual’s celebrity can often be measured by whether or not they have appeared in The Simpsons.

A guest voice on the show (playing a new character) is one thing, but appearing on the show as themselves is another level entirely.

Paul and Linda McCartney, Cypress Hill, the Smashing Pumpkins, Leonard Nimoy, Kim Basinger, Jerry Springer, Mark Hamill, Cyndi Lauper, Ron Howard, Dolly Parton, Elton John, Stephen Hawking, Lucy Lawless, Mel Gibson, Kid Rock, Willie Nelson, Stephen King, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Venus and Serena Williams, Paul Newman, Richard Gere, Wolfgang Puck, Stan Lee and Carmen Electra (I could go on and on and on…) amongst many others have appeared as themselves on the ever-popular animated series, with varying levels of prominence and success, but we still love a fresh celebrity appearance despite the fact that many have already been there before. »
