The Itchy and Scratchy cartoon has become dull and boring because it is no longer featuring the cartoon violence that had made the show so popular with kids. This prompts Bart and Lisa to come up with a new script idea for the show and send it in to the show's writers. They come up with a really funny episode idea called "Barbershop of Horrors," where Itchy(as a barber)pours flesh-eating ants on Scratchy's head instead of cutting his hair The head of the studios where Itchy and Scratchy is made, receives Bart and Lisa's script, but throws it out when he sees that it was written by children.
After receiving a rejection letter from the Itchy and Scratchy studios, Bart and Lisa decide to put an adult's name on the script and send it back in. They decide to put Grandpa's name on the script thinking the producers of the show might take the script more seriously if they think it was written by an adult. This ends up working for them and the studio head decides to use the script for the next Itchy and Scratchy cartoon.
Bart and Lisa's script helps revive the the show's popularity and the studio asks for more scripts. As it was Grandpa's name used on the script, the studio tracks Grandpa down at the retirement home and offers him a large cash reward and a job as the head writer on the show. Soon, Grandpa ends up getting nominated for an Emmy award for Lisa and Bart's work, which Grandpa ends up winning, but Grandpa rejects the reward and gets booed off the stage.
Meanwhile, Homer and Marge go to their high school reunion where Homer becomes the laughing stock of the class when it is revealed that he never completed high school. Embarrassed, Homer decides to enroll in night school and get his diploma. That of course doesn't go too well for the goof ball Homer.
