‘Big Bang Theory’ Finally Gets Around to Saying Good Bye to Mrs. Wolowitz

More sad than funny, in the best tradition of that immortal Mary Tyler Moore Chuckle the Clown’s funeral episode.

Carol Ann Susi, who played Howard Wolowitz’s incredibly Jewish mother, or, actually, just her voice, on The Big Bang Theory, passed away in early November, and ever since, we, the BBT fans, have been waiting for the inevitable tribute episode.

It finally came, last night. More sad than funny, in the best tradition of that immortal Mary Tyler Moore Chuckle the Clown’s funeral episode.

Mrs. Wolowitz, who has been absent from the early winter episodes, was in most of this week’s entry, starting first with a call to Howard from Florida, in which she asked her Howie to check on his friend and her — what? House boy? — Stuart.

“How come she doesn’t send someone to check in on me in case I’m lonely?” asks Simon Helberg, who plays Howie Wolowitz.

“Because you have a WIFE!” shrieks Melissa Rauch, Bernadette.

The episode ends with the gang—sans Howie and Bernadette—toasting Mrs. Wolowitz. Johnny Galecki, as Leonard, comes across as really missing the lady who’s been part of the show’s first eight seasons. Not funny, but touching and worth watching.

Here’s where you can catch the full episode (just kill the pop ads until the video gets going).
