The Man Who Grew Too Much - S25-E13

Question: There is an epilogue revealing that Edna Krabappel has died, due to the passing of Marcia Wallace who voiced the character. Is there any in-story reason given for the character's death?

Chosen answer: While no cause of death is mentioned, Mrs. Krabapple's passing is indicated in the series. Nine days after Marcia Wallace's death, in the title sequence of Season 25 - "Four Regrettings and a Funeral" - Bart wrote "We'll really miss you Mrs. K." once on the chalkboard. Later in season 25, At the end of "The Man Who Grew Too Much", Ned recalls a joyous time dancing with Edna. He then looks at the picture of her next to one of Maude, expressing sadness at missing her laugh. The black armband Ned is wearing is an indication of mourning, confirming that Edna had, indeed, died. (Source: Simpsons Wiki - http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Edna_Krabappel).

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
