Audiences who were watching this past Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons were able to catch a quick tribute to the late Marcia Wallace, who voiced Edna Krabappel. The show producers put in a brief image of Bart’s teacher with angel wings during the opening credits sequence, which depicted Springfield as a winter wonderland. Also in the picture was a likeness of the late show writer Don Payne, who died of cancer in March of this year.
“We wanted to do a tribute to two terrific people, Marcia and Don,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told E! News. “The episode was, sadly, Don’s last.”
Last month, the show also honored Wallace, who died at the age of 70 in October, with an episode in which Bart wrote, “We’ll really miss you, Mrs. K.” on the chalkboard.
