‘The Simpsons’ May Be About To Lose One Of Its Most Iconic Voices

Some bummer news is coming out of Springfield this morning, as Harry Shearer has announced that he’s leaving “The Simpsons,” due to a contract dispute.

If you don’t know Shearer by name, you absolutely know him by voice. He’s brought some of the best and most underrated “Simpsons” characters to life over the years, including…

Mr. Burns


Ned Flanders

Principal Skinner

Reverend Lovejoy

Doctor Hibbert

News Anchor Kent Brockman

Bus Driver Otto


of Kodos and Kang!


of Lenny and Carl!

And Rainier Wolfcastle

of McBain fame!

Until it’s officially confirmed by the decision makers involved with “The Simpsons,” we’ll hold out hope that Shearer and the show work out a deal. Otherwise, it’s the end of an era for some of the best (and the worst) that Springfield has to offer.
