Despite his "retirement" he has guest starred on various television shows and also some voice acting work, most notably ''Film/StuartLittle'' and ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', where his distinctive child-like voice adds to the generally benign nature of his characters. Some of his guest spots have him [[DisabledCharacterDisabledActor pigeon-holed as a man with an illness]], when he guested on ''Series/BostonLegal'' he had lung cancer, when he guested on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' he had OCD and when he guested on ''Series/TheGoodWife'' he had a neurological disorder.

* {{Determinator}}: He did the first ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' film while simultaneously working full-time on ''Series/FamilyTies'', effectively carrying the show himself, since his ''Family Ties'' costar Meredith Baxter-Birney was out because she was pregnant, getting at most a few hours of sleep on most days. And then there's his battle with Parkinson's disease, originally told he'd have less than 10 years before the disease would overtake him, but more than 20 years later, is still working.

* DawsonCasting: He was 23 playing 17 year old Marty [=McFly=], and due to his short stature and youthful face has almost never played a character the same age. In ''SpinCity'' Michael Flaherty was established as just turning 30 just as Fox was approaching 40.

He also appeared as himself in his prime time special ''Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist (A Personal Journey of Hope)'' in May 2009. He made a surprise appearance at the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, where he declared [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming everyone attending to be honorary Canadians]] - [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which he then claims means that]] [[FridgeBrilliance Canada won every gold medal of the games]]!
