“Bart, it’s such a nice day today, let’s have detention outside.” – Mrs. Krabappel
Sad news, Marcia Wallace, Mrs. Krabappel herself, died yesterday. The cause was “complications from breast cancer”:
She would also build a second career as a voice-over actress, giving life to Edna Krabappel, Bart Simpson’s cynical and chain-smoking fourth grade teacher on “The Simpsons.” The role, a sublime parody of disaffected instruction, earned her an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 1992. The show’s executive producer Al Jean said Saturday that the character would be retired out of deference to Wallace’s death.
Good on Jean. So long, Marcia. We’ll miss you.
