    On the subject of Grampa, has anyone else here been following John K’s blog (http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com.au/) recently? He’s been posting storyboards for the recent “Treehouse of Horror” opening, which was envisioned as being a lot longer and more elaborate than it turned out. Also, Grampa figured more prominently in the sequence (“I love Abe…He’s so lumpy!”). It’s a shame the whole thing was whittled down in its final form. Kricfalusi has said he’d love to be able to animate a whole episode.

    Weak. Why is Grampa just standing there without a reason, as they all turn to him?
    Zomb!

      The Simpsons might be gramps age when they go off.

      In the full episode, when it’s revealed Grandpa is in the house, the camera cuts to him sprawled in a heap at the bottom of the stairs, clearly having just tripped over Bart’s skateboard which is a few feet away. I don’t know why Charlie didn’t pick that shot; it’s a much funnier visual.

    I’d forgotten this scene. Grampa gets some great lines.
