TV DeathsEdit

NOTE: Since Cartwright voices multiple characters on The Simpsons, only the specific roles that die are listed. Most are obviously played for comic effect.

  • The Simpsons: Bart the General (1990; animated) [Bart Simpson]: In a dream sequence, Bart is beaten to death (off-screen) by Nelson (also voiced by Nancy); his body is shown afterwards lying in his coffin during his funeral. He survives the episode in reality.
  • The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror V (1994; animated) [Bart Simpson]: (1) Falls into a giant food processor, along with Lisa (Yeardley Smith) and Milhouse (Pamela Hayden); this turns out to be a dream sequence when Bart is woken up by his family. (2) After being turned inside-out by a supernatural fog, Bart is devoured after Santa's Little Helper pulls him off-screen by his intestine at the end of the family's musical number.
  • The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror IX (1998; animated) [Bart Simpson]: In the opening sequence "couch gag", he hits his head on the garage door while returning home, and falls onto the driveway. (He and the rest of the family are back to life when the actual episode begins.)
  • The Simpsons: Simpsons Bible Stories (1999; animated) [Bart Simpson/Nelson Muntz/Goliath II/Ralph Wiggum/Shepherd/Rod Flanders/Various Characters]: (1) In the David vs. Goliath II segment, Nelson/Goliath II is impaled in the throat by Ralph/Shepherd's tombstone when the latter throws it at him (revealing he is not dead after all), causing Nelson/Goliath to fall to his death. (2) Rod, along with his family, ascends up to Heaven when the Apocalypse occurs. (3) At the end of the episode, Bart, along with the other Simpsons, walks down a stairway into Hell when they discover the Apocalypse has started while they were asleep in church. (Naturally, the ending of the episode is non-canon; Nancy's other characters also likely died in the Apocalypse.)
  • The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror X (1999; animated) [Bart Simpson/Nelson Muntz]: Nelson is trapped/electrocuted in a malfunctioning photocopy machine when the Y2K bug affects it. "Bart Simpson" explodes in the vacuum of space after he and Homer (Dan Castellaneta) eject themselves out of the airlock to get away from the celebrities on the spaceship; they both explode after they drift off-camera.
  • The Simpsons: Simpsons Tall Tales (2001; animated) [Bart Simpson/Nelson Muntz]: In the Tom Sawyer segment, Bart and Nelson are hung by an angry mob. It first appears as if they are smiling and gazing at the funeral from the rafters, then they are lowered into their respective coffins, confirming them as dead.
  • The Simpsons: The Fabulous Faker Boy (2013; animated) [Ralph Wiggum]: In the couch gag animated by the Robot Chicken team, Ralph is killed in an explosion (alongside everyone else in the bus) when the bus misses the jump and crashes into the cliff wall.
  • The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XXVI (2015; animated) [Bart Simpson]: Bart is killed in numerous ways by Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer).
  • The Simpsons: Thanksgiving of Horror (2019; animated) [Bart Simpson/Ralph Wiggum/Nelson Muntz/Database']: Bart survives, but he looks on in horror along with Yeardley Smith and Pamela Hayden when the others are eaten by a jelly monster.
