Krusty The Clown Killed Off? Simpsons Character Could Be Axed

Hey, hey kids! It looks like someone's going to die come this fall on "The Simpsons." The long-time television cartoon is entering its 26th season and according to the season opener, that character could be Krusty the Clown.

Al Jean, the show's producer, announced the title of the episode, "Clown in the Dumps" during a Fox panel at the Television Critics Association panel last weekend. Seeing as how there's only one professional clown on the show, the signs point to good ol' Krusty.

For more on the controversial announcement, watch the video above. And let us know which character you think might get the axe in the comments below. Who could it be? Bumble Bee Man? Mole Man? Duff Man? (Oh yeah!)
