We Lost Funny Lady Marcia Wallace This Past Weekend [VIDEO]
I always really like Marcia Wallace. Very funny and classy lady. I got to see her speak several years back and she was funny and great as she was battling breast cancer. We remember Marcia of course from the Bob Newhart show, but her resume is very impressive. Did you know she actually started out on the Brady Bunch? RIP Marcia. Thanks for the laughs!
In addition to Bob Newart she was seen as school principal Mrs. Lyman in two episodes of ALF, played Mrs. Caruthers in a few episodes of Full House, and appeared in episode #227 of Bewitched (“Laugh, Clown, Laugh”) as Darrin’s secretary in 1971. She and Bob Newhart both reprised their signature roles from The Bob Newhart Show in episode #147 of Murphy Brown (“Anything But Cured”). She also appeared on The Brady Bunch twice, once as Marcia’s teacher in “Getting Davy Jones” and once as the woman who sold Jan a Mod New Wig in “Will the Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up”. Wallace also had guest appearances on Charles In Charge, Murder, She Wrote, Magnum, P.I., and A Different World.
On one of the last episodes of Taxi, she portrayed herself, chosen as the ideal date of Rev. Jim Ignatowski. Later, Wallace played the maid on the satirical series That’s My Bush!, and in 2009, appeared on the daytime soap The Young and the Restless, where she played an inefficient assistant kidnapper, Annie Wilkes. From 1990 until her death, she voiced the recurring role of Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons, which earned her an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 1992 and she appeared in over 100 episodes
