There were recent reports that a major character on The Simpsons will soon die on the show. The sad irony of this is that we just lost Marcia Wallace, the voice of one of my favorite characters on the show, Mrs. Krabappel.

Seth MacFarlane has had a remarkable career with the incredible success of Family Guy, and most recently Ted, which was a huge hit for Universal. In fact, Ted is one of the highest grossing comedies of all time, making $540 million worldwide, and the powers that be have been clamoring for a sequel.
It’s amazing to think that one of the biggest movies of the year centers around a teddy bear, but Ted is fast becoming one of the biggest comedies of all time, if it isn’t there already.
ALF, the story of a rather cantankerous puppet from another world, was shown on NBC for several years back in the 80s.
