Troy McClure introduces three "potential spin-offs" of The Simpsons. The fictional pilots include: "Chief Wiggum, P.I. (Wiggum and Principal Skinner are detectives in New Orleans, and must contend with the evil Big Daddy, who kidnaps Ralph); "The Love-Matic Grandpa" (a spoof of the failed 1960s-era sitcom "My Mother the Car," where Grampa's ghost inhabits a Love Tester machine at Moe's Tavern); and "The Simpson Family Smile-Time Variety Hour" (the Simpsons - along with a teen-aged "Lisa" - star in a comedy-variety show, much like the Bradys did in 1977).
