GRAMPA REVEALS ALL ON "THE SIMPSONS"
SUNDAY, AUGUST 8, ON FOX
Author Mitch Albom Makes Guest Voice Appearance
Grampa is sitting on a bench waiting for his family when a thoughtful-looking man named Marshall Goldman approaches him and asks to hear about his life. Grampa tells Goldman about the time he was on a World War II battleship, which was hit by an enemy torpedo, and Goldman, a human-interest columnist, publishes it in The Springfield Shopper. Later, Grampa meets Mitch Albom (guest-voicing as himself) and shares another story with Goldman for a follow-up article. But when Homer discovers a draft of Goldman's third story, he must race to find Grampa before it is published and his life is changed forever in the "Thursdays with Abie" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Aug. 8 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
