On Sunday night’s episode of The Simpsons titled “Diary Queen”, the audience gets treated to a visit from a familiar face — and voice that became iconic in the long-running Fox animated series.

In the episode, Bart stumbles upon the diary of Edna Krabappel, who was voiced by the late, great Marcia Wallace, who won an Emmy for the role in 1992. For more than 175 episodes, she was known as Bart’s teacher as well as Ned Flanders’ second wife. The result is a very heartfelt tribute to the actress who died unexpectedly in 2013 at the age of 70.

In addition, an episode in March 2014 featured Ned Flanders reminiscing about his late wife.

  Fox Sets Summer Premiere Dates For New Animated Comedy ‘Housebroken’, ‘Duncanville’ Season 2 Fox is expanding animation to Mondays, with the premiere of its new animated comedy Housebroken, starring Lisa Kudrow, Nat Faxon, Tony Hale and Will Forte. The series will debut on Monday, May 31 at 9 PM ET/PT, followed by Season 2 of Duncanville at 9:30 PM ET/PT. A special two-episode second season debut of Duncanville featuring a Parks & Recreation cast reunion will air Sunday, May 23 (8:30-9 PM ET/PT and 9:30-10 PM ET/PT), after which the series moves into its Monday time period. Housebroken follows a group of neighborhood pets and stray animals as they work through their issues inside and outside their therapy group.

The memory of Wallace lived on with “Diary Queen”, which was supposed to air last week but was pushed due to NASCAR weather delays. Nonetheless, audiences were treated to the Edna Krabappel tribute. The official Simpsons Twitter account teased the tribute on Sunday saying, “Join us for a trip down memory lane with Mrs. K tonight.”

To make the episode even more heartfelt, Wallace’s real voice was used, according to Deadline’s sister site Variety. With the permission of the Wallace estate, executive producer Al Jean said that they used lines she had said previously on the show which fit into the storyline.

The tribute was emotional, but we’re sure this isn’t the last time The Simpsons will remember the legacy of Wallace and her memorable character of Edna Krabappel.

Awards crisis averted. The late-night community has breathed a sigh of relief after the Television Academy capitulated and decided against merging the late-night talk category with sketch for this year’s Emmys. Deadline has spoken to a few late-night sources this morning and there’s a general sense of jubilation, meaning that there will likely be five late-night nominees and these shows won’t have to compete with the likes of SNL and A Black Lady Sketch Show for a spot. The networks were uncharacteristically united on the issue and there was a plan to send a letter to the Academy to petition for changes.
