Storyline

Grandpa Simpson reveals to Bart that he and Montgomery Burns were part of a World War 2 unit known as the Flying Hellfish, which stole priceless art from a German castle during the war, of which the last surviving member would inherit the fortune. When another member of his platoon dies, Abe and Burns remain the last two survivors, and Burns vows to make sure Grandpa doesn't become the last Hellfish, until Abe and Bart vow to find the fortune before Burns does.

Trivia

The film "Monument Men" follows a very similar plot to the story Abe tells Bart about saving the works of art from the Nazi forces. See more »

Goofs

The name of Grandpa's World War II squadron varies between the "Flying Hellfish" and the "Fighting Hellfish. This may be because he is senile and his stories are often muddled up. See more »

Great Episode
19 May 2006 | by (Brighouse, England) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite episodes of the Simpsons, and hell there are some good ones!

The episode plays like an old fashioned crime serial, like "Tin Tin" or something like that. The episode also features my favourites, Mr Burns and Grandpa Simpsons as prominent characters and goes into there past and shows them in there army days. There are some great jokes involving Nazi's and World War Two. One of the best parts of the episode is when Abe Simpson attempts to assassinate a certain high profile Nazi only to have the plan thwarted by Burn's.

Overall this is an amazing episode and for me an instant classic, I heartily recommend it.
