Simpsons Did It: The Best Science/Sci-Fi Guest Stars To Appear On Fox’s Long-Running ‘Toon
Appearances: “The Computer Wore Menace Shoes” (2000)
British actor Patrick McGoohan reprised his most iconic role in 2000, appearing as The Prisoner’s Number Six. This isn’t a Family Guy-style one-off punchline either. “The Computer Wore Menace Shoes” has Homer starting a blog to reveal secrets about his friends and neighbors, eventually earning a Pulitzer for his work. Once he outs himself to claim the prize, however, everyone goes mum around him. Long story short, he’s eventually kidnapped and trapped
in the Village on “The Island,” a fancy prison for nosey nosers who stick their noses into everything. One which is, naturally, defended by a big bubble. Thankfully, McGoohan’s Number 6 is on hand to help Homer stage an escape.

Number Six: that’s the third time that’s happened.
