Show: The Simpsons
Year: 1997
Cameo role: Mentor to Bart Simpson

Joe Namath’s appearance on The Simpsons is short but sweet. Bart is practicing football but realizes he’s going to need a miracle in order to be any good at it. Right at that moment, Namath himself rolls up to Bart’s house after his car breaks down due to vapor-lock. Shocked, Bart asks Namath for the secret to football and Namath is just about to answer him when his cars starts up again and he’s off before he enlightening Bart. It’s classic Simpsons humor and a fun way to include an athlete in a show.
