'The Big Bang Theory'
"The Excelsior Acquisition"

With only a learner's permit in his possession and not even owning a car, Sheldon is summoned to traffic court after he is caught speeding by a traffic camera. He was driving Penny to the hospital in her car as a favor to her, she who reported Sheldon when she knew she couldn't pay the traffic fine herself. Feeling this situation is all Penny's fault and feeling that he did nothing wrong, Sheldon vows to beat the ticket in court. Beyond the issue of Sheldon winning or losing the case, his scheduled court appearance coincides with a personal appearance by Stan Lee at Stuart's comic book shop. Leonard, Howard and Raj have no conflicting emotions on going to court with Sheldon or going to meet their idol at the comic book shop - they're going to the comic book shop. In addition to paying the fine if one is incurred, Penny vows to make it up to Sheldon by trying to arrange a meeting with Stan Lee. It would help both Penny and Sheldon if Stan knew about Penny's plans. (Written by Huggo for the IMDb)

From Wikipedia:
Stan Lee (born Stanley Martin Lieber; born December 28, 1922) is an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, voice actor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics.

In collaboration with several artists, most notably Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he co-created Spider-Man, theHulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and many other fictional characters, introducing complex,naturalistic characters and a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books. In addition, he headed the first major successful challenge to the industry's censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, and forced it to reform its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

He was inducted into the comic book industry's The Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.

Back in September of 2010, I said that Stan Lee would be inducted into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame the next year.  It hasn't happened yet, but it will!
