I gave up on The Simpsons years ago (and never saw Newhart), but that's completely beside the point - what awful news. RIP.

Oh man... they can't do what they did with Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure, though. She married Ned Flanders! Ned has a second wife that's died... They'll have to have her die suddenly. They can't have her run off with someone, not after having built this up as a good marriage...
Or they could do a Neris where's mentioned but never seen though they are going to have to get a new teacher for Bart.

I think that scenario is harder to do because the Simpsons and the Flanders are next-door neighbors. Niles didn't live with his brother or in the same apartment complex.

Re: RIP - Edna Krabapple (Marcia Wallace)

Yes, they can't just let her character go away like Lionel Hutz. She's too integrated into the main cast, especially after marrying Flanders.

They'll have to explain her absence and it will have consequences to Skinner, Flanders, his boys, and of course Bart.

RIP, Marica Wallace.

Enda was really a terrific character. It'll be hard to write her off of the show.

A terrible loss. Her performance on The Simpsons was fantastic.

Re: RIP - Edna Krabapple (Marcia Wallace)

She also appeared several times on the game show Match Game.

During the halfway commercial break each show, they'd announce the address to write to for tickets. Accompanying on the TV screen was a combination of two faces; two of the celebrities, or one celebrity and one contestant, or both contestants. It was always hilarious, and you could hear the audience laughing while the announcer was talking.

One time they combined the upper half of Marcia's face with the male contestant's beard. Their faces were very similar, and she looked like she really did have a beard!

I'll miss both Edna and the voice that Marcia gave her. She was a wonderful friend and foil to Bart Simpson as wall as an irreplaceable part of the one of the greatest ensembles in television sitcom history.

RIP Marcia Wallace.
Me too . She was one of the reasons I watched the Simpsons over the years.

RIP Marcia Wallace.

Heaven's gained one really funny and classy angel.

Watching it now. I like that they replayed a key episode in her development.
ETA: Saw it. Very sweet.

I'll tell you for all the ribbing the new episodes of the Simpsons receives these days. That one little moment made me feel more than anything I have felt in any medium of entertainment in a hell of a long time.
