Interesting Addition to the Simpsons Family History,
30 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Gorgeous Grampa is a good Simpsons episode with a fun and enjoyable storyline with plenty of very funny scenes.I thought the idea of Grampa being a very unliked wrestler in the past was a funny and interesting addition the history of the Simpsons family and when he got Bart involved I thought it got even more enjoyable.My favourite part of the episode was definitely Mr Burns music number about being evil,I found it to be catchy and also hilarious, they don't do songs in the Simpsons very often but when they do there always great.Gorgeous Grampa is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

The family see a different side to Grampa when he revisits his days as fearsome wrestler 'Gorgeous Godfrey'.
