Re: RIP - Edna Krabapple (Marcia Wallace)

Bart looking at that chalkboard with such sadness in his eyes...

For all the fights he had with Edna, he still cared about her. "Bart the Lover" showed him that she was human. And I imagine living next door to her probably changed him further in regard to that. They can't just retire her without a word. I think they should have an episode where she is lost. I know they've done an episode where Ned lost a spouse before, but Edna made an impact on the children of Springfield. And this time, let's not have Homer be responsible for her death.

Anyone happen to see the very simple and sweet tribute to Marcia Wallace on tonight's episode?
I did. Both at the beginning and at the end of the show. So sad, yet so classy.

It was one of the better episodes I've seen in a long time. That along with the 2011 one they showed were really good. They should stick to simple poking fun of stuff, instead of being so aggressive about it. The latter just makes the show not so fun to watch.

I've missed the poking fun episodes. It was a good return to form.

I don't want to lose Edna, they should recast. As sad as Marcia Wallace's death is, Edna can be played by someone else. Killing her off would be awful and cruel to Ned and her becoming a silent extra in group scenes would be a waste of a great character. I don't want Bart to have a new teacher or no teacher, I want to keep Edna.

I was fine with retiring Phil Hartman's characters, they were funny but not that important, Edna is different, she is one of my favorite supporting characters on the show.

^ I disagree. The characters come from the performers' interpretations and personalities, not just from the voices they do and the lines they read. A replacement would not be the same. If any of the main cast died, I would expect their characters to be written out. If Dan Castelleneta, Harry Shearer or Hank Azaria died, I would hope they would end the show. I certainly don't think I could watch it anymore.
