“You know, when I was your age, I had to walk twenty miles just to get to school. And back then, we didn't have pacifiers. We had to suck on pieces of wood. And in my day, we didn't have TV sets. We used to sit on our grandpa's lap all evening and listen politely to his entertaining stories.”
Grandpa and the Kids is the nineteenth Simpsons short and originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on January 10, 1988.
Homer shoves Bart, Lisa, and Maggie in a room with their Grandpa. Grandpa tells the kids about stories from "the good old days". After he finishes talking, Bart asks Grandpa if his Grandpa was a liar, too. Grandpa replies, "No, but his lap was awful slippery." Bart falls off Grandpa’s lap. Then Grandpa tells a story of a happy little elf while Bart is bouncing a ball. Then Grandpa suddenly says the elf stopped. Right after that, Bart bounces the ball out the window breaking glass. Grandpa says the reason he stopped is because he was a clumsy little elf and Bart hangs his head low after that comment. After that, Bart says he wants to hear a scary story from Grandpa. As Grandpa is beginning to start the story he yells "Wauuugh!" and looks as if he was dead. Lisa believes that Bart killed Grandpa however Bart denies it. Then one of Grandpa's eyes open but the kids didn't see it. As Bart is freaking out, Grandpa says he was just pulling their leg and everyone but Bart is having a good time. Dad then comes in the room to see everyone having fun except Bart who faints.
