The original production script for Stephen Hawking’s final appearance on The Simpsons. Hawking makes an unexpected appearance as Lisa performs a song during her time at Expressions performing arts camp; the relevant text on page 22 runs as follows:
‘PROF. STEPHEN HAWKING appears out of nowhere, wearing a bright orange track suit, gold chains, and a Kangol hat. He has two turntables attached to his wheelchair wheels
STEPHEN HAWKING (THROUGH VOICE BOX) OH YEAH. BREAK IT DOWN FOR ME, FELLAS.
As Stephen Hawking “scratches” at his turntables, Ethan and Kurt breakdance around him. (This should last several seconds, and feature some big, 80s-style breakdance beats.)’
Hawking starred in four episodes of The Simpsons between 1999 and 2009, later quipping that ‘as many people know me through The Simpsons as for my science’. He described the show as the best thing on American television.
