- Frasier should be a little less hard on himself, frankly, but he's awfully funny when he's not
- —Kelsey Grammer
Grammer serves as the eponymous hero of Frasier. Dr. Frasier Crane is unquestionably his most famous role, but it has competition as his most loved from his turn on The Simpsons as "Sideshow Bob", a Machiavellian, Gilbert and Sullivan-obsessed, would-be criminal mastermind constantly thwarted by Bart. The voice came from Ellis Rabb and the need to sing from Kelsey himself, a tendency David Hyde Pierce, and others, comment on regularly in the extras for Frasier as a series.
