Unfortunately, the brother and sister duo are no longer with us - Garry drew his last breath in 2016, while Penny passed away on Monday, December 17, 2018.

As can be seen in the following Youtube video, the two had great chemistry and made a sensational cameo in the famous film.

A FANTASTIC SCENE

"Penny had a lot of talent, not only in front of the camera but also behind it or in a studio booth."

In the movie, Garry and Penny played a particularly bickering couple who meets the Sanderson sisters - Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy - on Halloween.

The sisters mistake the couple for their masters because Garry is wearing a devil costume, and when he invites them in, Penny immediately notices that they are too old to be trick-or-treating.

A LIFETIME OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS

The interactions between the characters are simply sublime and the scene ultimately ends with Penny kicking the sisters out of her house after catching Parker's promiscuous character slow-dancing with her husband.

Penny had a lot of talent, not only in front of the camera but also behind it or in a studio booth. In fact, she was the first start to ever be invited to voice a character on "The Simpsons."

"LAVERNE & SHIRLEY"

Aside from that, along with an array of major film roles, she was known for directing "Big" and "A League of Their Own." But the role she was most famous for was, without a doubt, Laverne DeFazio from "Laverne & Shirley."

Penny died of complications from diabetes at her home in Hollywood Hills, a tragic ending for the great and humble woman who was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in 2009 and managed to beat both three years later.
