Disco Stu is a Character on The Simpsons voiced by Hank Azaria. Disco Stu is just one of the plethora of hilarious minor characters on the Simpsons that make the show so great. While Stu has become somewhat of a staple in the show, his first appearance occurred in the episode entitled "Two Bad Neighbors." In this episode the Simpsons participate in a rummage sale and George Bush moves into the posh house across the street.
As Marge and Homer were going through old items in the attic, they ran across an old denim jacket which Homer had decorated with his "Rhinestone Nights Fashion Gun." Marge notices what is written on the jacket and the following conversation takes place:
Marge: Who's "Disco Stu?"
Homer: Oh, er, I wanted to write "Disco Stud," but I ran out of space...not that "Disco Stu" didn't get his share of the action.
During the rummage sale Ned Flanders holds up Homer's jacket as two friends walk by (one in plain clothes and one in a gaudy disco outfit). The plain-clothesed friend says to they other, "Stu, you should buy that!" The friend in a disco outfit replies in a calm and cool voice reminiscent of Fonzie, "Hey, Disco Stu doesn't advertise." Thus, Disco Stu is born.
A bit later in the episode Homer gives a rendition of the disco favorite "Stayin' Alive," with his own lyrics of course, and Disco Stu begins dancing in the street. When Homer stops singing Stu clears his throat and says, "Disco Stu likes disco music."
