R.I.P. Ms. Krabappel

Marcia Wallace who played the voice of famous Springfield teacher Ms. Krabappel passed away at age 70. Wallace played Bart’s fourth grade teacher and one of his most popular arch enemies for over 20 years, even winning herself  an Emmy for her role in 1992. Ms. Krabappel wasn’t the most pivotal of characters to the series but was definitely a great compliment to the out of control Bart Simpson. According to TMZ Wallace died Friday night at her home surrounded by her loved ones. She had been sick for quite a while.

Executive producer for the Simpsons Al Jean released a statement;
“I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace. She was beloved by all at “The Simpsons” and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.”

It’s always sad when one of our TV icons pass away, especially one you grew up watching year after year. Marcia Wallace was a great talent and will leave behind a legacy of laughs and smiles. Spring field elementary and the show altogether will not be the same without the lovely Edna Krabappel…You will be missed.
