“The role of Grandpa is not complicated because you’re wearing odd makeup or bizarre costumes. That’s not what complicates a role. What makes Grandpa a little odd is the fact that he had no prototype. When I approached this role, I knew that whatever I was doing was original. So no director could say to me, Listen, remember how he did it, this is how I want it done. I worked very hard creating that character. I made those lines work. The walk and the posture all fit the character. As to the character itself, you might say that Grandpa was a kind of Dracula-type Major Hoople.” - Al Lewis
