Phil Hartman voiced recurring characters on The Simpsons- Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure, as well as several one-time and background characters including monorail con artist Lyle Lanley.
Hartman married Brynn Omdahl in 1987; the couple (pictured above) had two children together. However, their marriage was fractured, due in part to Brynn’s drug use. On May 28, 1998, Brynn shot and killed Hartman while he slept in their Encino, Los Angeles, home, then committed suicide several hours later.
Rather than substituting another voice actor, the writers of The Simpsons retired Hartman’s characters, and the season ten episode “Bart the Mother” (his final appearance on the show) was dedicated to him.
The term Pfeilstorch (German for “arrow stork”) is given to storks injured by an arrow while wintering in Africa, before returning to Europe with the arrow stuck in their bodies. To date, around 25 Pfeilstörche have been documented.
The first and most famous Pfeilstorch was a White Stork found in 1822 near the German village of Klütz. It was carrying an arrow from central Africa in its neck.
This Pfeilstorch was crucial in understanding the migration of European birds. Before migration was understood, people had no other explanation for the sudden annual disappearance of birds like the White Stork. Some theories of the time held that they turned into mice, or hibernated at the bottom of the sea during the winter.
