Peter is thrilled that Grandpa is coming to live with his family. That is, until Grandpa moves into Peter's room, forcing him upstairs into the creepy attic.

But Grandpa is tougher than he looks. Rather than give in, Grandpa plans to get even.

Goofs

After the many accidents at the birthday party, Sally is angry with Ed citing the 'war' as being the cause of all the events that transpired. However, almost everything major that happened at that event (with the exception of the ejector seat chair) started as a direct result of a rat chewing through a cable and not connected with the war at all, therefore not his or his grandson's fault.
