Series 3, Episode 6 - Gershwin's Bucket List

Martin discovers an unusual connection when he and Sean realise old age has opened the door for the return of Grandad's childhood imaginary friend, George Gershwin.

Further details

It isn't just a snazzy name and a zest for life that runs in the Moone family. It turns out imaginary friends do too. Martin discovers an unusual connection when he and Sean realise old age has opened the door for the return of Grandad's childhood imaginary friend, George Gershwin.

This newcomer is a piano-playing swingin' cat who's enjoying his last hurrah and wants to fulfil his bucket list before Grandad kicks said bucket. Of course, Martin, Sean and Crunchy Haystacks are more than willing to help him out as they embark on a series of adventures.

Summer, meanwhile, is just around the corner, meaning exams loom for all the kids. As Trisha seeks peace and quiet away from the crowded family home, Martin takes an unusual approach to swotting up on the Irish Civil War - in which Godzilla played an important part, apparently.
