Meanwhile Grandpa Abe and two of his fellows from the retirement home have moved into The Simpsons home until the irregularities of the nursing home are fixed. The bullies are out in the park and are invited to a Bully Rally Saturday night where they spoof The Warriors (1979), as Bart's slingshot is used to frame him. Now they have to make their way back to Springfield. Written by sscialli

Did You Know?


Dr. Hibbert's father is clearly meant to be a caricature of Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) from 1970s TV show Sanford & Son. Despite his voicing and obvious dress, we get two actual Sanford & Son terms used in this episode by "Grandpa" Hibbert.

Calling his son "dummy" and asking for his "ripple" (which if you watched Sanford & Son, you'd KNOW is Fred Sanford's liquor of & easy to mix - usually with OTHER liquors!) See more »

Very Fun Episode,
11 June 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Winter of His Content is a brilliant Simosons episode with a very well written storyline with a ton of very funny scenes.I found all the different parts of this episode really enjoyable and fun,seeing some members of the retirement home move in with the Simpsons,seeing Homer behaving like an old man and also the side story that showed Bart and his school bullies attend a gathering bullies across Springfiekd,I found this part of the episode the most fun,especially seeing one ridiculous group after another.Winter of His Content is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

When the Retirement Castle is deemed unliveable,Homer and Marge make room for Grampa and a couple of his pals,but being around this many elderly people makes Homer behave differently.
