The Simpsons Made Everyone Cry Yesterday


The Simpsons made everyone cry yesterday when they gave their heartfelt tribute to Marcia Wallace who played Bart’s teacher, Edna Krabappel. (“Her name is Krabappel?? I’ve been calling her Krandall! Ohhhh I’ve mad an ass of myself.” — Homer.) They paid tribute with Bart’s classic and regular chalkboard writing gag. Instead of something sarcastic or joke-y, Bart simply wrote “We’ll really miss you Mrs. K.” (above.) Great, I’m getting teary now. Look at his face. :(

It’s still unclear if this is the Simpsons character who was going to die or if it’s just a sad turn of events.

Is This The Simpsons Character Who Dies?


Sad news today. Marcia Wallace, Simpsons superstar, voice of teacher Edna Krabappel, has died today. Could this mean that Krabappel is The Simpsons character who dies? Or does this mean they’ll have to write an entirely separate character out of the show?

USA Today reports that Wallace died at 70 years old. She won an Emmy for her Simpsons role in the ’90s. Her Edna laugh (“HA!”) will be missed.

Simpsons producer Al Jean said,

She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.

So perhaps Edna K isn’t the intended deceased character after all…?

‘The Simpsons’ Are Going To Kill Off a Major Character!

The Simpsons kicked off its 25th season on Sunday (TWENTY-FIVE YEARS!), and after two and a half decades, it’s about time they throw a wrench in the works and change things up a bit, eh? Well, look no further, because this season, the show is going to kill off a major character. Zut alors!

From Canada’s Sun News:

Executive producer Al Jean admitted as much in a recent phone conference with the press, promoting Sunday’s 25th season debut of The Simpsons.

“I’ll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won’t say who it is,” Jean said cagily.

In fact, virtually all the major characters have been rewarded with an Emmy over the years.

Yeah, that’s definitely a tough one. Who in the world could it be? Admittedly, I haven’t watched The Simpsons religiously, though I’ve seen a fair bit of the series. I still have zero guesses on who it could be. Flanders? Mr. Burns? Millhouse’s dad? LOL, I’m just naming everyone that comes to mind, now.

Who do you think is going to die this season?
