Did you see it? The brief tribute to Marcia Wallace, the voice of Edna Krabappel, during the Christmas-themed credits of this Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons? I’ll answer that for you: No you did not. Luckily, the good folks at IGN did. Right at about the 1:14 mark there’s a super-quick pan across the town, and if you set the video to 720p or 1080p and freeze it at juuuuuuuuuust the right moment, you’ll see this, crystal clear:

A little explanation, via E! Online:

In the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, Mrs. Krabappel is featured as angel with her signature no nonsense arm-crossed stance next to late Simpsons writer Don Payne.

“[W]e wanted to do a tribute to two terrific people, Marcia and Don,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told E! News in a statement. “The episode was sadly, Don’s last.”

Well that is really very sweet. I like to think there’s a real Angel Mrs. Krabappel up there in heaven, looking down on us, and letting out a few good “HAs” at our collective expense every now and then. That would make me happy.
