Behind the Laughter

Voice Actor

After Grau's death in 1995, Lunchlady Doris was retired out of respect for over 10 years. Due to the delay between recording some episodes and the time they actually air, Tress MacNeille's voice was in episodes airing as early as 1997 such as "Lisa's Sax". Lunchlady Doris then became a silent background character and was mostly been seen in crowds and groups of other faculty members. In the 18th season, she was renamed to "Lunch Lady Dora", in "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer", to respect Doris Grau's death. She is voiced by Tress MacNeille.
