Emmy Contender: The Simpsons showrunner on Grampa getting woke and how Disney will impact the show
The Simpsons' Emmy-nominated episode "Mad About the Toy" starts off as a babysitting romp. Then it detours into an exploration of Grampa's only recently remembered past as a toy-soldier model and his repressed guilt about a same-sex kiss, and how his reaction to it got a man fired. Grampa — who is usually just a supporting character on the show, used for geezer jokes — becomes more than his stereotype, and The Simpsons once again handles the issue of homophobia with humor and grace.
