MacGyver is an American television series, starring Richard Dean Anderson as Angus MacGyver.


MacGyver is Patty's and Selma's favorite TV show. They watch the show religiously and idolize both MacGyver and Richard Dean Anderson. They rarely miss an episode.[1]

When Jay Sherman was telling Patty and Selma which actors were gay, and Homer suggested he said "MacGyver". He did, and it ended with him getting a wedgie, as Patty and Selma were big fans of MacGyver.[2]

When Selma started menopause, she decided to adopt a child from China and visited the Consulate of China. Here she learned from Mr. Zhao that she needed a husband to adopt a child. Selma asked Zhao if he knew who MacGyver was, intending to put down his name, but Zhao knew him. Instead, Selma put Homer down as her husband.[3]

On one occasion, Patty and Selma kidnapped Anderson when he was in Springfield for a Stargate SG-1 convention, informing him that he was now doing a two-fan MacGyver convention. They tied Anderson to a chair and told him to use his MacGyver skills to escape. Anderson did so; then he discovered he liked doing the escape and asked Patty and Selma to tie him up again and again so he could do even more complex escapes. In an ironic turn of events, Anderson ended up becoming a nuisance to Patty and Selma and they couldn't wait to be rid of him.[4]
