Bart Writes Touching Chalkboard-Tribute to Marcia Wallace on ‘The Simpsons’ [PHOTO]
Bart Simpson made a heartfelt tribute to Marcia Wallace, scrawling, “We’ll really miss you Mrs. K.” on the classroom chalkboard in the opening sequence of ‘The Simpsons’ which aired Sunday night on Fox. Wallace provided the voice of Bart’s longtime teacher, Edna Krabappel.
Marcia Wallace passed away on October 25th from complications related to breast cancer. The show’s producers plan to retire the Mrs. Krabappel character.
Though it was recently announced that a character played by an actor/actress who won an Emmy for the role would be dying on the show, Wallace’s passing has nothing to do with that creative decision.
R.I.P. Mrs. K. As Bart said, we’ll really miss you.
