Mrs Krabappel to be retired from The Simpsons as voice actor dies

Fourth grade teacher Edna Krabappel will be retired from The Simpsons, following the death of voice actress Marcia Wallace, aged 70.

"I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace," The Simpsons producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly. "She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character."

The departure of Bart's teacher is unrelated to plans to kill off a character in the current season.

"Earlier we had discussed a potential storyline in which a character passed away. This was not Marcia’s Edna Krabappel. Marcia’s passing is unrelated and again, a terrible loss for all who had the pleasure of knowing her."

Would've been such a dark coincidence if she really was the character that was gonna be killed off.
Poor Flanders.

Yeah, wondering what they're gonna do now that they've made such a big deal out of "Nedna". Will they kill the character? Poor Flanders will have had two wives die.

Either way, she's too prominent to just disappear like Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure did.
Wow 70!
Aww man this is really sad. And damn I miss Lionel Hutz he was a classic
RIP Marcia Wallace. Thanks for the entertainment. :'(
RIP so many years of entertainment
R.I.P so sad. :'@
I almost cried in the episode in which Edna passes Bart cause he studied so hard for the test and he still failed.
This saddens me. :'(

Forgot which one but I remember its one of the old ones.

Maybe first 10 years?

Bart was not going to pass 4th grade I think then he cried in front of Edna saying that he did everything he could to pass and Edna took pity on him and changed his grade from an F to a D.

Found it.

Here is the sypnosis. So it was from the second season. Goes to show how old I am. :P
Ahh, I was thinking it was recent, But i remember that episode!

I wouldn't mind having the complete season collection. Would be nice to have
Flanders must have split her in half :S
Poor old Edna.

Will always live on through her amazing talent.
Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz came back impersonated and not saying much from time to time when Phil Hartman died but Krabappel is more of a plot centric recurring character though. She'll probably get a story send off like Maude Flanders (who's voice actor didn't die but left)
