It seems just like yesterday when The Tracey Ullman Show (1987)
had this short cartoon segment on it that eventually became its own full fledged show on the Fox Network. That was 30 years ago. The Simpsons (1989) will begin this historic 30th season on Sun April 28th, 2019. Over the past 30 years many top stars have guested on the show. Who is your favorite?

I have to vote for the classic Troy McClure voiced by the talented Phil Hartman. I loved how they gave his character such a fantastic presence giving his classic speech 'Hi I'm Troy McClure, you may remember me from such films as..." His character often tied into the show's satire of television and how personalities can sometimes deceive us into believing something that's utterly outrageous. It's a shame his character disappeared after Phil Hartman was tragically killed in 1998. His legacy will still live on with his contribution to Seasons 2-9 with Troy McClure, Lionel Hutz and Lyle Lanley.

I could have made four or five polls but there are only so many images of the characters in the media gallery.
There were so many that had no photos!

He was in two, from memory. "Mr. Plow" (Season 4, Episode 9), and in Season 14, Episode 4 ("Large Marge"). I didn't mean left out as in forgot about him. I meant it simply as surprised I didn't see him as an option, which would mean he was left out of the poll for whatever reason. Will vote later on today. The SImpsons sure have had some memorable guest appearances.

Just saw this now. Just on the episodes, I would have mentioned the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode which he was in, but that was Family Guy's.
To explain what I meant by my previous comments, it was simply that I felt that he should have been in a poll like this, so I was surprised when I didn't see him on it. This was what I mean by the reason/s for it being irrelevant. It isn't a blame on you for not adding him, like you're insinuating. It was observing he wasn't in the poll and being surprised by it. That was all. Of course, after I was surprised, I was saddened because it dawned on me that imdb mightn't have had a photo of him from them, but my initial reaction was that of being surprised. Hope that can clear it up.

I'm 64. I watched the original 'Batman' (1966) in 1966. Adam West would have been in if there was a photo of him in the Simpsons Picture Gallery!
