Harry Shearer seems to be leaving - and taking a whole load of characters with him, sad to say.

Release The Hounds, Smithers.

This could be the death knell for The Simpson 20-odd years on...

Many characters have done this, eg the muppets etc.
There'll be someone out there easily.

That's the plan it seems: http://www.theverge.com/2015/5/14/8606173/the-simpsons-al-jean-recast-harry-shearer-burns-flanders

For US$300,000 per episode, I have no doubts they'll get someone *very* good.

Have you got the link to the original image? I just can't make out all the characters, and it looks interesting...

Sorry, thought I'd pasted it in:

About the same size though looking at it.

I own 14 box-sets (old fashioned I know) and there's some relief in the hope that I may soon be able to stop buying them...

That's a very cool chart.

What amazes me from this image, is how difficult it must be to do all those voices. Each one of them is slightly, but consistently, different in one way or another.
The fact he and the two others with more character voices can remember them all- even those with around six, is really quite a talent.

Kind of reminds me of watching Mrs Doubtfire- Robin Williams really nailed that role- but this scene specifically had to be one of my favourite lines.

Can you imagine the artistic disaster if Dan & Hank died in a car accident..!
