One of the most beloved supporting characters in The Simpsons is Troy McClure. A big star in the 1970's whose career went downhill.

McClure would often appear in short videos in tv introducing tv shows or educational programs introducing himself by naming some of his previous performances.

These movies would often be comical references to real movies or tv shows.

Which of these fictional films you may remember Troy McClure for would you like to watch the most?

Ha! Ha! Nice joke! The IMDb only lists three people as Troy McClure and none of them are in the films you have listed or the bogus films you made up here. In fact Troy McClure is the name of the character Phil Hartman voiced on "The Simpsons'.

The Simpsons is a fictional show, so it is allowed to reference fake movie titles.

Indeed, that is the Troy McClure I'm talking about, and the films listed are all of those mentioned by him in The Simpsons. I added the actual film the joke is referecing to represent it on the list, or a film with a similar name when that wasn't possible.


Peter, would it be useful to add a note to make clear people should vote for the movie in the text and not the one in the poster?

Pencho, try Doug McClure. He fits your description especially after he had switched from movies to television and couldn't real switch back again after "The Virginian" tv series.

Since a couple people voted for a real movie instead of a fictional one, I might include that in the question, in italics, and also put the fictional movies' titles in bold. 

A question like this would probably make it more clear:
Which of these fictional films of Troy McClure's, that you may remember, would you like to watch the most? 

'Fun poll, btw. :)

Thanks Ruby, I added the fictional in the description, however I left the phrase " films you may remember Troy McClure for" as it is. The reason for this is that that is the character catch phrase in the tv series.

Oh, yeah, that's right - I forgot the catchphrase; I think what you wrote works really well. 


I still don't know what to vote for, lol. 'Great poll.
