Favorite Simpsons Guest Voice?

I'm leaning towards Rodney Dangerfield as Mr Burn's Son.
But Stephen Hawking's appearnce was insane. Who would have guessed that the world's smartest man is a fan of the show.

I really can stand when Bands make it onto the show. IMO they make for the worst shows.

Sam Etic is my favorite guest voice .
The worst guest stars would have to be Britney Spears and N*STINK.

I don't think of Phil Hartman as a guest voice, he was on so many times. Seems like Sideshow Bob is on a lot too, but probably not as often as I think.

I gotta give the nod to Albert Brooks as the RV Salesman and Jacque the bowling instructor in the first season. When I bought the DVDs he just had me rolling as the RV salesman before I knew who it was. And he earns bonus points for ad-libbing.

If we're talking about one time appearances then my favorite would have to be Phish.

Otherwise, I'd have to pick Joe Mantegna as Fat Tony.

Phil Hartman and Danny DeVito (Homer's long lost brother, if memory serves).

REM was pretty funny, but Jim Varney was the best.

Easily...

James Woods, when he replaced Apu as the "tightly wound convenience store clerk".

Michael Jackson was pretty funny of the one-time deals, and I loved Hartman's voices as well.

Hard to pick just one.

Rodney was great because they let him work little bits of his stuff into the dialog AND the others picked up on it ("He told me my motto should be Sempre Fudge.").

Mr. Bergstrom is up there because it was just such a shock to to have such a HUGE star contribute a voice. The ep has always been one of my favs.

If Kelsey Grammar is on, I always assume it will be one of the best shows of the season....

Was that really Stephen Hawking's voice? I doubt it; just somebody made to sound like him.

You beat me to it. Albert Brooks was the best. Every time that RV episode comes on it is a must see.

I gotta go with Patrick Stewart as "Number One" of the Stonecutters order. Great episode.

Phil Hartman definitely.

Patrick Stewart was definitely the best of the one-timers in the Stonecutters episode.
