Bart-weary and rather randy fourth-grade teacher Edna Krabappel made her debut during the first season of The Simpsons nearly a quarter-century ago. Last night, the character and actress behind her were given a final farewell. Marcia Wallace, who died in October, voiced Edna in more than 175 episodes of the venerable toon and won an Emmy for it. In Sunday night’s second of two original episodes, the educator’s widower, Ned Flanders — complete with black armband — reminisced about a night dancing with her. And neighborhood bully Nelson Muntz, something of a closet softie, chimed in as well. Here’s the scene, which aired as an epilogue:
