The Unexpected Departure of Larry

‘The Simpsons’ shocked viewers this week by bidding farewell to Larry ‘The Barfly’ Dalrymple, a character whose presence, albeit minimal, had been a staple at Moe’s Tavern since the show’s inception. In a surprising twist that left fans reeling, producer Tim Long explained that the impact of Larry’s death was intended to hit hard, highlighting the emotional connections formed with even the most peripheral characters.

Larry, who first appeared back in 1989 during the show’s first season, was mostly seen in the backdrop of Moe’s Tavern, occasionally delivering a line or two. Despite his minor role, his death signifies a rare event in the animated series, marking a pivotal moment of loss that resonates deeply with the show’s audience.
