The cartoonist added: "It was such a thrill for us to have him - the main reason we have guests on is because we're fans."Extras
star Gervais wrote and starred in an episode of the animation comedy, titled 'Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife'. The episode which aired in 2006 involved a wife swap scenario, with Gervais' character moving in with Marge Simpson.
