Lot of people have floated the "Julie Kavner has throat cancer" theory in recent years, but this clip is the first that makes me think there's something to those rumours.

Maybe doing that husky voice for over 30 years has had its affect

Yeah, I think that’s all it is. Her voice as Marge has declined slowly and quite consistently. If it was an illness like cancer,

it would change more suddenly.

Just looking at the comments about this on several Simpsons forums.

Agree with them that the joke in the sketch is that Marge can't sing. The fact that Marge's voice sounds totally normal when she says the following line "You're home." suggests Kavner has no real problems doing the voice to same way she always has. 

Twitter storm in a teacup. Next.

^^ Poor Spade. A Scott Thorson gambit really has no staying power on DL in 2020...

Got to admit - got super scared that one of the main voice actors had passed when I saw this thread bumped. 

 

But yeah, since her normal voice is fine, I guess they were just trying to joke about her lack of singing voice.

Another Simpsons regular guest star gone.

RIP Mrs. Glick (Cloris)!

Marc Wilmore, who wrote 11 post-classic era episodes and was a producer on the show for 14 years, has died aged 57. Apparently from COVID. 

 

Follows David Richardson, mentioned elsewhere, who wrote season 5's "Homer Loves Flanders", who died earlier this month.
