But she and her voice are very present in the series. Mrs. Wolowitz is always mothering her Howard like a little boy. She cooks his favorite childhood dishes for him, cuts the food into bite-sized pieces and does his laundry. She plays a big role in Howard’s life and yet she is never seen in the series.
All you can tell from previous episodes about the series character Mrs. Wolowitzweiß: She takes part in a water aerobics course for overweight people and is accordingly fat, wears a wig, has false eyebrows and a bleached moustache. In combination with the strong roaring voice, the fans’ heads probably form a wacky picture of Howard Wolowitz’s mother.

Howard Wolowitz! And a bus driver outed me once,” Carol Ann told Susi.
However, in November 2014, Carol Ann Susi died unexpectedly of cancer. In the series, too, they paid their respects to her and didn’t cast Howard Wolowitz’s mother anew, but continued to write the story in such a way that the fictional character also died. This resulted in a very touching overlap between the real mourning for a colleague and the staged story.
