The Simpsons season 26 just premiered, and with it an answer to the question, "What regular character on [The Simpsons](series:200695) was going to be killed?" was answered. And they definitely didn't make us wait long to find out which character was doomed! Just a little over 7 minutes into the episode, we said hello and goodbye for the last time to. . .
. . . Krusty the Clowns father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski! Now a lot of people figured this one out quite a while ago, myself included, you can click here to read my previous article, but the fact of the matter is it's always hard to say goodbye to a character, no matter how big or small their role is!
While we are very sad to see a beloved character leave us, this isn't the first time this has happened, so I thought it would be nice to take this chance and look back at some other characters that left us a little too soon on The Simpsons.
