It's been on TV since 1990, so of course The Simpsons has had tons of celebrity guest stars over the years. But who are the most celebrated pop culture icons to ever appear on the irreverent animated sitcom? Britney Spears, Lucy Lawless and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner are just a few of the names on the list.
