They're already killing off another character 3 or 4 years after they killed off Maude Flanders?  It's funny how the show has changed in the 8 or 9 years that I'm sure it's been on the air. You know, I bet that some kids that weren't even born yet when The Simpsons first appeared on TV are going to be in middle school soon.

Since the article says the character is played by an Emmy winner, that means it's not played by Harry Shearer (non-winner).  Which means the character is none of the following.


C. Montgomery Burns
Waylon Smithers
Ned Flanders
Principal Skinner
Reverend Lovejoy
Dr. Julius Hibbert
Kent Brockman
Scratchy
Otto
Jasper
Lenny
Edde Rainier
Wolfcastle/McBain
Kang
Herman
George Bush
Judge Snyder

What's the point of killing a character fifteen years after they killed the show?
 
2013-09-28 09:40:50 AM
Mr Prediction: Its gonna be Grandpa Simpson. If not, then the very last Simpsons episode to be made will have him die in that
 
2013-09-28 09:43:27 AM
It's going to be Bart.  They're going to finally air that lost episode.
 
2013-09-28 11:48:13 AM
They're still making the Simpsons? I thought that show was done years ago.

I didn't know those were all played by the same guy.  I'm also surprised he's the sole non-emmy winner amongst the cast, some of those are amongst the best characters.

I know the whole "Simpsons hasn't been funny in 20 years" thing has become an Internet cliche, but, god damn, watching that show is painful now.
 
2013-09-28 12:32:30 PM
My guess: Sideshow Bob.
 
2013-09-28 12:58:44 PM
I admit I'll be looking forward to the Futurama crossover episode.  Futurama was far superior to The Simpsons.

If The Simpsons is still around in 2017... I am guessing they could get Obama to do a voice-over.

Nothing compared to the first 5 seasons of the Simpsons. Nothing.

Kill off Maggie.  If you are going to go down that route, then shock the sh*t out of the world.

Or go the other route, and have Maggie face all these ridiculous threats (Dingos, large objects falling and just missing her, and other wacky but lethal forms of death) only to succumb to something simple, like choking on a toy part.

FTFY.  Book it, done.

RedPhoenix122: My guess: Sideshow Bob.



This is a really good guess and I approve. Just don't know if he would be considered a series regular.

Or, better yet - reverse it. A dexter/simpsons spinoff featuring maggie..

did Dr. Nick stay dead after the movie? I've only be intermittently watching the show since then.

well, the next 3 seasons compare pretty well (especially since you include a pic from a season 8 episode!)

Either way, they need to get rid of him as a character.

The first 9 seasons of the simpsons are the best to ever air on tv. After that its really hit and miss. You might have one good ep every 10.

Oh no!  NOT LENNY!

Family Guy is already killing someone off (supposedly a Griffin), do we really need more of this crap?
 
2013-09-28 03:57:28 PM
Comic Book Guy, aka Jeffery Albertson. Bart enters comic book shop and instead of getting sneered at CBG slowly falls over dead, freaking out Bart and that blue haired sidekick. Then we have Bart get worried about Homer and Marge trying to get him to not worry so much, and apart from no more CBG the show ends on book.

Well, Lionel Hutz was voiced by Phil Lamar...

It will be Apu, and he will be immediately reincarnated, and you can quote me on that.

I heard a rumour South Park may try to kill off Kenny. No idea if it's legit though.
 
2013-09-28 04:10:56 PM
People who they won't kill:

The Simpson family
Ned and the Flander kids
Edna
Principal Seymore and his mother
Lenny and Carl
Mr. Burns
Chief Wiggim and Ralph
Jasper
Marge's sisters
The actor who does the McBain movies
Apu and his family
Moe


Leaving:
Milhouse
Smithers
Barney
Milhouse's family (though they were already assumed dead once, so unlikely)
The bullies
Martin (already assumed dead once already, so unlikely)
the twin girls
Otto
Nelson

There are other characters, but Sideshow Bob won't be killed off, Bumblebee Man is too distant to really effect the Simpsons, same with The Mayor, so really, those in the 'leaving' list are the only ones I can think of who could die and effect the show and the family.
 
2013-09-28 04:18:49 PM
I remembers when the Simpsons went to shiat. It was around the episode of 'Barts Tea Party With Mommy'.
the episode was so retarded that Bart even had to wear a helmet while riding his bicycle.

/Its a farking cartoon you ignorant politically correct morans who are now doing the writing.

I think it would have to be an adult. Killing off a kid is way too dark.

Simpsons did it!

Wow. So Guillermo Del Toro is gonna do a treehouse of horror? i might watch Simpsons for the first time in a decade.

She's grateful and she doesn't have a husband, so she names the baby Homer Jr. And Homer actually bonds with the baby better than his own

I love the Simpsons, but only reason why I stopped watching it years ago is because it's not on Hulu on my iPad. If there's any other way that I could still stream it for free on the iPad, I'd still watch it religiously. Too bad, that's lost ad revenue right there.
 
2013-09-28 05:34:42 PM
Frankly, I'm more interested in the futurama cross over they mention in the article.

Came here for this. I was gonna do it, glad you did, you have the screencap.

That would be great, then again it would mean another damn Sideshow Bob episode.

Everything up to season 10 was fantastic.

Seasons 11 and 12 had some pretty fun episodes (eg. Behind the Laughter, Missionary Impossible, Simpson Safari, New Kids on the Blech, The Computer Wore Menace Shoes) but a lot of medicore to outright bad ones as well (eg. Homer vs. Dignity, Day of the Jackanapes, Insane Clown Poppy, Trilogy of Error, Eight Misbehavin, Bart to the Future, Alone Again, Natura-Diddily)

From season 13 and onwards, you'd be lucky to find more than one watchable episode a season.

Someothermonkey: Everything up to season 10 was fantastic.


nah, season 10 is where the abd episodes started to outnumber the good. Even season 9 was a mixed bag, though mostly great.


Handsome B. Wonderful: And season 1 is rather shiatty.


I've always thought season 1 was relatively under-rated. Even if the animation isn't all that great and the writing isn't quite there, I think it's decent as a whole. I would rate it above anything from about season 10-onward.

I was gonna go there too...... i mean season 1 ? really?

as blacksharpiemarker points out, ever since they started having a shiat ton of guest stars, things have gone down hill.
And where did the actual stories go? The episodes that were very funny AND tugged at your heartstrings?

gahd, I miss seasons 2-5
