In Miami Vice, Zappa portrayed a crime boss named Mr. Frankie. He was an actor or voice artist in episodes of Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre, Miami Vice and The Ren & Stimpy Show. A voice part in The Simpsons never materialized, to creator Matt Groening's disappointment as Groening was a neighbor of Zappa and a lifelong fan.
