It seems like The Simpsons has been around forever. Then again, it has pretty much been on the air for as long as most of us have been alive. For the past 25 years, we’ve been entertained by the artistic melodrama of Lisa, Maggie’s mute, yet loveable persona, Homer as dad of the decade, and Marge being the only woman created who can manage holding down the whole household. Oh yeah, how could we forget Bart Simpson — the eldest child in the family and the one kid we all wanted to be like growing up. When it comes down to it, the entire Simpsons clan has provided decades of laughs, and we’ll gladly take another decade with them on our televisions.
One of the biggest things we’ve noticed about The Simpsons is how popular the town of Springfield seems to be. In fact, more than a handful of our favorite celebrities have animated themselves to be a guest star on the show. From record-breaking pro athletes to iconic rock legends, and even a few comedians here and there, Springfield has been the ultimate magnet for Hollywood. These are 25 of our favorite celebrity appearances on The Simpsons, which were the ones that shined the brightest and also had us in stitches.Click to start the list
