Theoretical physicist and enormous pop culture celebrity? Only [/tags/stephen-hawking/ Stephen Hawking], whose [/news/famed-physicist-stephen-hawking-dies-at-76/ death at age 76] was announced Tuesday, could swing both of those titles.
Despite the fact that few people outside the realm of science understood what Hawking really did for a living, he became a beloved figure in the entertainment world. His wheelchair and robotic-sounding computer voice made him instantly recognizable, whether in cartoon form or being portrayed by handsome actor [ Eddie Redmayne], who won an Oscar playing Hawking in [/news/how-to-watch-stephen-hawking-theory-of-everything-biography/ 2014's "The Theory of Everything."]

Here's a look at some of the times when the scientist hit the big (and little) screen.
'The Simpsons': Forever a fan

Hawking was such a fan of "[ The Simpsons]" he allowed the animated Fox show to feature him during four separate appearances, and called it "the best thing on American television." 

He also knew it brought him and his big brain to a new audience, saying, "Almost as many people know me from 'The Simpsons' as through my science."
