Phyllis Diller (1917 - 2012)

Film DeathsEdit

  • Mad Monster Party (1969; animated) [The Monster's Mate]: Killed in an explosion (along with everyone else on the island) when Baron Frankenstein (voiced by Boris Karloff) drops the vial of his formula. (Played for comic effect.)
  • The Nutcracker Prince (1990; animated) [The Mouse Queen]: Providing the voice of a mouse, she is crushed by a giant pillar.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Night Gallery: Pamela's Voice (1971) [Pamela]: Pushed down a flight of stairs (off-screen) by John Astin, several months before the episode begins; she appears as a ghost throughout the episode, and her body is shown lying in her coffin (rapidly cross-cut with shots of John's body in his own coffin) towards the end of the episode.
  • Joys (1976) [Phyllis Diller]: Killed by Johnny Carson. (I haven't seen this, but every single guest star in the special was killed one by one by a mysterious figure who was ultimately revealed as Johnny.) (Played for comic effect.)
  • Family Guy: Mom's the Word (2014) [Thelma Griffin]: Dies (off-screen) from a stroke. We learn of her death when Lois Griffin (Alex Borstein) informs Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) of her death. (This episode was made following Phyllis' real life death in 2012.)
