See, son, that's where we're going to live... maybe not today, maybe not tomorra'. But someday.
―Orville J. Simpson

Orville J. Simpson, or Great-Grandpa Simpson is one of the sons of "Old Tut" and "Happy" Dinsdale (the other being Boris Simpson), the father of Abe Simpson and the paternal grandfather of Homer Simpson.

History

Orville J. Simpson was born in an unidentified country (presumably Scotland), and married Yuma Hickman in the early 1900s. While living in this country, the couple had at least five children, including Hubert, Tyrone, Cyrus, Hortense and Abraham.

Assuming Abe is to be trusted with his stories, Orville, Yuma Hickman and their children emigrated to America on a steamboat from an unspecified country (presumably that of Scotland, Ireland, or Northeast England) and moved into the Statue of Liberty. After a few years of living there, they were forced to move out when they filled the head with too much garbage. Their family then moved to Springfield, which was located in an unidentified state. In Springfield, Abe claims that Orville became a disciplinarian (as Abe describes him, a "professional child beater"), who once owned a disciplinary center where he strangled young boys to discipline them (his own father disapproved of this). While in America, the couple had two more children, Bill and Chet

Orville was seen in Heaven by Bart after getting hit by a car,[1] strangling young Abe, hinting the habit is a family trait. He is present in Grampa's story when Grampa tells the family of his arrival in the U.S.[2]

In "Mathlete's Feat", it's mentioned that he raised Abraham and his eleven dead siblings on crick water

Orville appeared again in "Dad Behavior" in which, during a (highly inaccurate) flashback, he hurls a baby Abe at the sun in response to him throwing up milk on his shirt. During this flashback, both Orville's physique and vocabulary are similar to that of Popeye.
