Status: Partially Lost

Charles Marvin Green Jr., better known as the Angry Grandpa, was a South Carolina YouTuber active from 2007 until his death in 2017, famous (or perhaps infamous) for his oft-destructive outbursts, pranks, rants, stories, and vlogs. The video series starred Charles himself, his youngest son and cameraman Michael Green, and Michael's girlfriend Bridgette West. Recurring appearances were also made by Charles's ex-wife Tina Sharp, their oldest son "Charlie Chill", daughters Jennifer and Kim, and grandchildren, Charles's neighbor Tina Dandridge, Bridgette's father Doug West, and Charles's fianceé Lauren Davi.

Despite being an internet sensation and a popular YouTuber in his own right who gained over 3,000,000 subscribers in his lifetime, several of Angry Grandpa's videos have been deleted over the years, some being reuploaded by dedicated fans, others only surviving in partial clips, and several lost altogether.

Angry Grandpa videos were originally uploaded to the now-defunct before the series moved to YouTube permanently. Michael's profile, xlxcigaroxlx, was deleted sometime during or after 2012 and several videos were lost in the process. The earliest known lost video to feature "AGP", The exploding cigarette, was a prank video uploaded on July 12th, 2008[2] in which Michael pours lighter fluid in an unsuspecting AGP's ashtray causing a small explosion as he's smoking. Non-AGP videos which featured Michael terrorizing his baby nephew with a Freddy Krueger mask and showing a shock video titled "2 girls 1 finger" to his mother remain lost as well.[3] Given that these videos have been missing for over a decade and their existence was only rediscovered in March 2021 they're considered the least likely of the possibly extant videos listed in this article to be recovered.

Someone on YouTube by the user "Angry Grandpa/KidBehindACamera Reuploads" has re-uploaded the video:

The only known screenshot of Grandpa Arrested[4]

The earliest known lost video from the TheAngryGrandpaShow YouTube channel, Grandpa Arrested, was recorded and uploaded immediately after Angry Grandpa destroys kitchen! in January 2011. AGP is seen talking to police officers responding to his latest rampage while Michael and Bridgette record from her car and laugh. He was detained, taken to the local police station, and released soon after with no charges pressed. Nonetheless, this incident caused TheAngryGrandpaShow to go on a brief hiatus as AGP was refraining from his usual antics afterwards. Only a single screenshot of the video has surfaced.

Angry Grandpa Hates Chris Price was uploaded shortly before Easter 2011.[5] AGP rants about his daughter Jennifer's ex-boyfriend who had pistol-whipped her and thrown her out of a moving car while Jennifer herself sits next to him with a black eye. Michael apparently uploaded this video against Jennifer's wishes and she presumably had him take it down.

Later in 2011, Michael ran a Facebook poll on whether Angry Grandpa, who famously despised cats, should have to kiss a cat. The final result was overwhelmingly in favor of it, much to the displeasure of AGP who reluctantly agreed out of loyalty to his fans. The deed was done at AGP's niece Jessica's home and Angry Grandpa Kisses a cat was uploaded on July 23rd, 2011[6] but was later removed. The reason for this is unknown although it's speculated that it was due to AGP's own embarrassment over the video. Unfortunately for him it has been reuploaded to YouTube several times and remains publicly available.

Angry Grandpa Gets Kicked Out of Cici's Pizza was uploaded the following month and features AGP becoming enraged after waiting two hours for a pizza. He cusses at the employees, shatters plates on the floor, and eats off of the buffet with his bare hands without paying before being escorted out of the pizzeria. The video was removed when Cici's Pizza threatened legal action against the Greens but was preserved through reuploads by others, although extra footage which allegedly shows AGP slipping on a puddle and injuring his knee after re-entering Cici's Pizza has been found. The manager, who originally orchestrated the video with Michael as a prank on AGP, was fired but in a twist of fate reunited with the old man at a flea market years later, thanking him for inadvertently getting him out of a job he loathed.

The Fake Bomb Prank is probably the most well-known and controversial lost AGP video and was uploaded on April 3rd, 2012.[7] It was removed about four days later due to violations of YouTube's terms of service and potential legal issues. Two screenshots have surfaced, one being the thumbnail and the other provided by Lost Media Wiki forums user Summertime.

The Fake Bomb Prank plot according to Summertime:

The video was about [G]randpa receiving a package in the mail. He opened the box to find a bomb inside, and Michael pretends to contact the police on his cell phone (secretly contacting a friend of his who was in on the prank). From there, they are given instructions on how to deactivate the bomb. Michael tells Grandpa to cut one of the wires, so he gets a pair of scissors and cuts the wire as told. Michael immediately yells, saying he cut the wrong wire and that the bomb would explode. Grandpa grabs the bomb and throws it out the window, before running to another room in his house with Michael.[8]

Two clips of the video were later released by Michael along with a story that his house was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation within hours in response to the video, albeit this has been met with heavy skepticism as the video was still available on YouTube and/or and being promoted on Twitter days later.[9] Despite the exclusivity of the missing video the aftermath titled Angry Grandpa's Fake Heart Attack 2 was recovered after being taken down due to negative reception from fans. Michael once pledged to release the long-lost prank video on StoryFire, a YouTube alternative created by his friends and fellow YouTubers Jesse Ridgway and Brian Spitz, if his channel ever reached 200,000 subscribers. Attempts to manually retrieve the video via the Wayback Machine were unsuccessful.

Thumbnail of The Salt and Ice Challenge

The Salt and Ice Challenge was uploaded on November 6th, 2013[10] and features AGP and Michael partaking in a viral internet trend by pouring salt and ice on their arms to induce a burning sensation and see who can withstand the pain longer. It was struck down by YouTube for showing the two's bloody forearms and only the thumbnail has been found. AGP and Michael later discussed the challenge and displayed their scars in GRANDPA'S FLAT TIRE.

One of the miscellaneous lost videos

In addition to these, a handful of other videos have also been removed for various reasons including the suspension of Michael's first YouTube channel in June 2010, displays of vomit and/or explosives, references to graphic violence, fan backlash, and allegations by Tina Dandridge that she wasn't paid for her appearances despite Michael agreeing to do so.[11]

GrandpasCorner videos

The first video uploaded to AGP's personal vlogging channel, GrandpasCorner, is lost and nothing is known about it except that it was uploaded on July 18th, 2011. In 2017 at least four videos were removed in light of the Tina Dandridge controversy; How Angry Grandpa Met Tina, My First Thanksgiving With Tina!, GRANDPA ASKS OUT TINA?!, OPERATION: GET GRANDPA A MILLION!!, and Q&A WITH ANGRY GRANDPA AND TINA! (albeit the subject of the first two of these was AGP's ex-wife Tina Sharp, not Dandridge), four of which have been recovered.

TheAngryGrandpaLive videos

In 2017 AGP hosted a livestream series on Twitch titled TheAngryGrandpaLive. VODs and highlights of AGP livestreams were archived on a YouTube channel of the same name as well as on Twitch. For whatever reason several of these have been hidden or removed, but fortunately, all of the missing livestreams except one have been found.


The Angry Grandpa briefly hosted a channel on from which several livestream VODs are lost. Later in 2010, a Memorial Day video uploaded by the Heyman Hustle, Michael's employer, to in which AGP rages over hot dogs and spills scalding hot water on himself has not been recovered.[12] Some videos of pranks involving fireworks which were uploaded to LiveLeak to avoid YouTube's strict policies against them are also lost. Michael and Bridgette's own vlog channels have also had videos removed for similar reasons to AGPs.

Logo of Angry Grandpa: The True Trailer Park Story shown in the preview

Angry Grandpa: The True Trailer Park Story was a documentary film being produced by Michael Green and scheduled for a Summer 2012 release with an approximate runtime of 01:30:00. It was cancelled when Michael sold the laptop containing all of the video recorded for the documentary, which wasn't backed up and didn't realize his mistake until it was too late. No footage from the film still exists aside from what was shown in a two-minute preview and it is considered irrecoverable.

Current situation

On December 17th, 2017, one week after the Angry Grandpa passed away, Michael uploaded a video discussing the future of TheAngryGrandpaShow channel in which two clips of The Fake Bomb Prank are shown. He also stated his intention to upload deleted and unreleased videos in the future albeit barely any of these have actually materialized, much to the agitation of fans who accuse Michael of hoarding the videos. It's unclear exactly how much unseen AGP content exists with Michael claiming to possess multiple hard drives of videos, but it's believed that most footage recorded prior to mid-2012 is permanently lost due to the aforementioned missing laptop. The ire of AGP fans has only been further inflamed by what's widely viewed as mismanagement of the Angry Grandpa legacy by Michael, who seldom uploads to TheAngryGrandpaShow (and at that the content often consists of inferior versions and/or B-rolls of older videos with Michael's added commentary) while continuing to profit off of his father through merchandise sales and using his name in vlogs to bring attention to his own channel. Michael also recanted his promise to rerelease The Fake Bomb Prank on StoryFire.[13]
