Goodbye, Mrs. K!
The Simpsons paid tribute to the late, great voice actor Marcia Wallace who passed away in October, by giving her character Edna Krabappel a pair of angel wings.
In fact, Edna was featured in the intro with Simpsons writer Don Payne, who also passed away.
In a recent interview, one of the show's executive producers, Al Jean, confirmed the touching honor:
“[W]e wanted to do a tribute to two terrific people, Marcia and Don. The episode was sadly, Don’s last.”
So sad! We'll miss you, Marcia!
In case you missed the quick and fleeting shot, ch-ch-check out the tribute…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
