Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad Sad

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:

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!!!

Sad news today.

Marcia Wallace has been a legend in Hollywood as a star on The Bob Newhart Show and most famously as the voice of The Simpsons' character Edna Krabappel.

Our thoughts are with the actress' loved ones during this difficult time.
