The new Simpsons season premiered Sunday night. The big hype about a regular character getting killed fizzled into a somewhat depressing episode.
The big question of who died in The Simpsons has been answered. Krusty's Dad, Rabbi Krustovski, has died spinning Krusty the clown into a depression. The episode is titled Clown in the Dumps. "Episode in the Dumps" would have been also a good title. The hype around who will die was just too much for killing off a side character like Rabbi Krustovski.

The whole Krusty depression and jewish heaven dream sequence was also not that entertaining. Good thing that the Simpson and Family Guy cross-over show was really funny to let us forget the season premiere of the 26th Simpsons season.
Simpsons fans took to Twitter to voice their disappointment. It's interesting that most fans already felt that they will get disappointed with this over-hyped premiere. Besides, this is not the first death of a Simpsons character. Dead Simpsons characters include Maude Flanders, Mona Simpson, Bleeding Gums Murphy, Amber Simpson and Fat Tony.
I thought they were going to kill off a bigger character in The Simpsons but ya know— daniel desario (@abcdefgrace_) September 29, 2014
Hey Simpsons, Rabbi Hyman Krustofsk is NOT a major character.— Guy Smiley (@GuySmiley11) September 29, 2014
I've been away from The Simpsons for so long that apparently Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky is now a "beloved character."— T. Loper (@friend_beast) September 29, 2014
