The Simpsons | Episode Guide | Season Six
Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy

Is Grampa's elixir really that potent?

Episode 2F07
Written by Bill Oaldey and Josh Weinstein
Directed by Wes Archer
Also starring: Pamela Hayden, Maggie Roswell
Special guest voice: Phil Hartman (as Troy McClure)

Premise: Homer needs something to make him more sexually potent, and Grampa has the answer - an elixir. It's not long before they fall out. Homer has to come to terms with a few home truths Grampa has told him.

Features: Troy McClure, Mayor Quimby, Grampa, Ned Flanders, Maude Flanders, Dr John Frink, Mr and Mrs van Houten, Dr Hibbert, Milhouse, Nelson, Ralph, Barney.

Couch: The family dance, on tiptoes, across a recurring living room set.

Homage: On discovering someone has bought his book, Al Gore plays Celebration, a 1980 hit for Kool and the Gang.

Hi, I'm Troy McClure, you may remember me from: Good Time Slim, Uncle Doobey and the Great 'Frisco Freak Out.

Notes: An amazing episode, in which Homer actually has an argument with someone, rather than backing down. As he and his father drift further apart, so the family are at a loss at what to do. You can't help but feel sorry for Grampa as a piece of Simpson family history goes up in flames.
