‘The Simpsons’ Plots Marcia Wallace Tribute with Ms. Krabappel Emmy Episode

The Simpsons Marcia Wallace Tribute Krabappel Bart the Lover
FOX

The news of ‘Simpsons‘ voice actor Marcia Wallace’s recent passing was made all the more sad by needed clarifications that Wallace’s Edna Krabappel would not, in fact, be the peripheral character scheduled to be killed off next year. And while Wallace had recorded an additional year’s worth of material for her character, FOX has plotted a special tribute to the actress for this upcoming Sunday.

Per Entertainment Weekly, FOX has decided to run a classic ‘Simpsons’ episode in place of an ‘American Dad‘ repeat, broadcasting 1992′s “Bart the Lover” before all-new episode “Four Regrettings and a Funeral.” The elder episode actually won Wallace an Emmy for her role, in which Ms. Krabappel becomes the recipient of one of Bart’s pranks, before Bart grows remorseful about pretending to set his teacher up on a date.

In addition to the classic ‘Simpsons’ episode re-airing, FOX will also include a special tribute card honoring Wallace in the credits of “Four Regrettings and a Funeral.” The newer episode had itself already made headlines for its upcoming couch gag, featuring a longer-than-usual spoof of Peter Jackson‘s ‘The Hobbit‘ trilogy.

Wallace passed on October 26 from complications of her ongoing battle with breast cancer, an end to a career that saw Wallace Marcia Wallace making guest appearances on ‘Bewitched’ and ‘The Brady Bunch,’ and portraying Carol Kester Bondurant on ‘The Bob Newhart Show.’

What say you? Will you tune in for a more classic ‘Simpsons’ episode this Sunday at 7:30 P.M. in tribute to Marcia Wallace?
