Hugh Laurie (with Tony Robinson) in 'Blackadder the Third: Duel and Duality'
Hugh Laurie (1959 - )
The Young Ones: Bambi (1984) [Lord Monty]: Killed in a (comical) explosion when Adrian Edmondson throws a grenade at his team during a game show; we see a flash of light and smoke, then four empty seats where the team had been.

Blackadder the Third: Duel and Duality (1987) [George, Prince of Wales]: Shot in the chest by Stephen Fry. He regains consciousness in Tony Robinson's arms and declares that his life was saved by the cigarillo case in his pocket; he then checks his pocket, discovers that he didn't have a case after all, and immediately dies. (Played for comic effect, obviously.)

Blackadder's Christmas Carol (1988) [Prince George/Lord Pigmot]: As "Lord Pigmot," he is disintegrated (along with Patsy Byrne and Stephen Fry) with a futuristic device by Rowan Atkinson, in Rowan's vision of "Christmas Future." (Again, played for comic effect.)

Blackadder Goes Forth: Goodbyeee (1989) [Lt. George Colhurst St. Barleigh]: Shot to death (off-screen), along with the rest of the cast, after climbing out of the trench and charging towards the German troops. The scene slowly fades from them charging to a shot of the empty field. (Played for dramatic effect, for once.)

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XXI (2010; animated) [Roger]: Shot in the chest with a speargun by Homer (voiced by Dan Castellaneta). (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Tommy)
