Which ‘Simpsons’ character will be killed off next?

- October 7th, 2013

Place your bets, ‘Simpsons’ fans.

With word that the long-running animated show will be killing off a main character late this season or next, the bookmakers at Bodog.ca have now released the odds on faves for which one will meet their maker.

sideshow-bob

Here’s the favourites:

Sideshow Bob 4/1
Penelope 6/1
Krusty The Clown 6/1
Abe (Grandpa) 6/1
Moe 8/1
Itchy 8/1
Rabbi Hyman Krustofski 8/1
Barney 9/1
Apu 9/1
Edna Krabappel 10/1
Comic Book Guy 14/1
Carl 15/1
Chief Wiggum 15/1
Ned Flanders 15/1

The last regular character to be killed off was Maude Flanders, the wife of the Simpsons’ neighbour Ned, in a Season 11 episode where she was pummeled by a barrage of torpedoed free t-shirts at a racing event (thanks to Homer ducking out of the way).

Other “Simpsons” characters who have perished include Bleeding Gums Murphy, Homer’s mom Mona J. Simpson, Frank Grimes and Dr. Marvin Monroe.

“The Simpsons,” created by Matt Groening, first aired on Fox in 1989. The show is broadcast in more than 100 countries and 50 languages, and has won 28 Primetime Emmy awards and been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    It’s gotta be Bob, the others are too important (except for Penelope but she doesn’t really count as a main character to me)

    I don’t think it will be any of the above, most probably a secondary main character like Mayor Quimby, Jasper, the shopkeeper (a.k.a. sarcastic man), squeaky voiced teen or perhaps sideshow Mel or if they wanted to really mix things up then Patty or Selma would be a good choice then Patty’s adopted child can be adopted by Homer and Marge or Flanders and Krabapple.

    Please don’t kill Comic Book Guy. He’s the coolest character!

    “If you answered Sideshow Bob, Penelope or Rabbi Hyman, you are wrong… they were never popular”

    Ideally, they should ‘eliminate’ Waylon Smithers, then Mr. Burns should gather all the employees of the Nuclear plant together. Put all their names in a bin and draw a name; the ‘winner’ would then be appointed his Personal Assistant. Of course, the winner should be Homer; think of the fun that would be. All hail Homer!!

    You forgot Homer’s mom was also killed off.

    She has been added!

    Simpsons hasn’t been good in years……..terrible show…… “In 2004, Harry Shearer criticized what he perceived as the show’s declining quality: “I rate the last three seasons as among the worst, so Season Four looks very good to me now.” <–AGREED!

    None of the above. My guess is Kirk VanHouten (Milhouse’s dad)…

    ABE Cause he’s so old.

    Dr. Marvin Monroe didn’t die. He was just very sick.

    I wish you were talking about family guy instead, then I would like to see all the characters die off. Nothing really replaces the simpsons. Simpsons forever!

    The clue is Regular.. and the Actor won an emmy for the portrayal Voice over
    Sideshow Bob, Rabbi Hyman are recurring.
    I would say Apu or mayor Quinby (shot by his wife)

    the only character Krusty’s dad will die (killing off is Hyman Krustofski (only) and Krusty the Clown plans to retire.!!
