On Sunday night’s episode of The simpsons titled “Dairy Queen,” audiences are visited by a familiar face – and a voice that has become iconic in the long-running Fox animated series.
In the episode, Bart stumbles upon the diary of Edna Krabappel, who was voiced by the late great Marcia Wallace, who won an Emmy for the role in 1992. For over 175 episodes she was known as The Teacher of Bart as well as Ned Second wife of Flanders. The result is a very heartfelt tribute to the actress who died unexpectedly in 2013 at the age of 70.
The simpsons Always remembered the character and actress who voiced Bart’s teacher and Ned Flanders’ second wife. Shortly after her death, we saw Bart writing “We are really going to miss you Mrs. K” on the board in the opening credits. In addition, in an episode of March 2014, Ned Flanders remembered his late wife.
Wallace’s memory survived with “Dairy Queen,” which was scheduled to air last week but was pushed back due to NASCAR weather delays. Nevertheless, the public was entitled to the tribute to Edna Krabappel. The official Simpsons The Twitter account teased the tribute on Sunday saying, “Join us on a trip down memory lane with Ms. K. tonight.”
To make the episode even more candid, Wallace’s real voice was used, according to Deadline’s sister site. Variety. Courtesy of Wallace’s Estate, executive producer Al Jean said they were using lines she had previously said on the show that fit into the script.
The tribute was touching, but we’re sure it’s not the last time The simpsons will remember Wallace’s legacy and his memorable character Edna Krabappel.
There are benefits to being a teacher’s pet.
In loving memory of Mrs. Krabappel. 💛 pic.twitter.com/IrrceWLqM5
