Wrestling Grandpa is a Season 6 episode of Rugrats.


Grandpa Lou Pickles relives his glory days as a wrestler by wrestling his old nemesis, Conan McNulty (Daniel Davis). Can "Pretzel-Maker" Pickles defeat Conan "The Crusher"? The Rugrats think so, as they think that he's a super hero.


Grandpa Lou tells the Rugrats that he used to be a wrestler named "Pretzel-Maker Pickles", and that he's going to step in the ring again to wrestle his old rival Conan "The Crusher" McNulty. When Grandpa Lou is forced to watch the kids on the day of his match, he takes them all to see the show. But Grandpa Lou isn't a spry as he used to be, and since the babies now think he's a "struper hero", they try to help him increase his power any way they can!
