Best known as George Costanza’s mother on the 1990s sitcom “Seinfield,” actress Estelle Harris died on April 2 of natural causes at 93 years old. She appeared on 27 “Seinfeld” episodes.

Harris was also known for her voice-over work, including the role of Mrs. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” franchise.

Variety reports that Harris had a robust voice career, anchored by her work as Mrs. Potato Head in the second, third and fourth chapters of the “Toy Story” series. She channeled her “Seinfeld” character in that role and had a loving and nagging relationship with Mr. Potato Head, voiced by Don Rickles.

She popped up in many animated projects, large and small, including films such as “Brother Bear” (2003) and “Tarzan II” (2005) and series like “Hercules,” “The Wild Thornberrys” and “Godzilla: The Series” (all from 1998).
