She was hilarious on Seinfeld--especially when she walked in on George with the Glamour magazine...

I also loved her as Mrs. Potato Head in the Toy Story series. 

In the first Toy Story film, I always laugh when she's packing for Mr. Potato Head (putting things into the hatch on the back of his body) and she says: "I'm packing you an extra pair of shoes and your angry eyes, just in case." 

RIP Ms. Harris

     It's Always Sad to hear about crummy stuff like this. But it's Also Encouraging, and Inspiring to Hear about Such Talent.

I Definitely Recognize the Face, Figure, and Lady. And I Definitely Hear that Unique Voice in my head.

Rest In Peace. 🙏🎨🕊🎨
