Bart Simpson says goodbye to Mrs Krabappel


The Simpsons salutes Marcia Wallace with poignant farewell from TV's favourite prankster.

The Simpsons paid Marcia Wallace, who died last week, the show's ultimate compliment at the opening of Sunday night's episode in the United States.

"We'll really miss you Mrs. K," scrawled Bart Simpson (voiced by Nancy Cartwright) on the chalkboard in the sequence that begins each episode of the long-running Fox animated hit. It was a reference to Edna Krabappel, Bart's oft-tormented teacher who was voiced for years by Wallace.

In addition, Fox aired a 1992 episode of the show for which Wallace won an Emmy as the lead-in to the new show.

In the classic episode Bart The Lover, after Edna gives Bart a month of detention, he gets his revenge on her by responding to her newspaper singles ad. Wallace, also known for her work on The Bob Newhart Show, died at age 70 from breast cancer last week. — Reuters

New animation on WWE stars as kids


WWE and Film Roman team up to make web series about young wrestling stars.

WWE Studios has partnered with Film Roman, The Simpsons animation studio, to co-finance and co-produce Camp WWE, a new animated web series imagining the WWE's biggest stars as kids, the companies announced Monday.

Mike Benson, a writer and co-executive producer for Entourage and The Bernie Mac Show, will write the series, which will consist of 13 three-minute episodes.

"With a combination of their unique personalities, distinctive characteristics and huge built-in loyal fan base, WWE Superstars make for ideal animation subjects in Camp WWE," Dana Booton, general manager for Film Roman, said in a statement.

"We are very pleased to be working with WWE Studios and hope that it will begin a mutually beneficial, long-term business relationship."

The show will envision WWE stars as a lot of rebellious kids who fight and claw their way through school. Their parents send them off to camp to reform their behaviour, a camp run by a strict counsellor named Mr McMahon – the name, of course, of WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

Bradley Buchanan negotiated the deal for WWE Studios while Marc Barson and Yvette Thomassian negotiated the deal for Film Roman. "Film Roman has been involved with some of the most well-known and humorous animated series," Michael Luisi, president WWE Studios, said in a statement.

"They are the perfect partners for WWE Studios to capture our Superstars in a truly unique and fun way." — Reuters
