Granny Looney TUnes

Granny is an character in Looney Tunes. She appears mostly in the Sylvester and Tweety shorts where she is the owner of the two characters and usually dotes on Tweety. In the Mystery Case Files stories, she is the owner of the orphanage that Emmy used to live in and is also her mother figure. She has white hair in a bun, glasses, a white shirt with a black chocker, a purple skirt and black boots; she is voiced by June Foray.


The idea of the cartoon Granny began with the Little Red Riding Hood character in spoofs of the story; first appearing as such in the 1937 animated short Little Red Walking Hoodwhich featured Egghead, directed by Tex Avery. Subsequent appearances of a similar "granny" character included The Cagey Canary, directed by Bob ClampettHiss and Make Up, directed by Friz Freleng; and Hare Force, featuring Bugs Bunny and Sylvester the dog (a one-off character distinct from the later Sylvester the cat). Finally, the character was solidified into her current role in Canary Row. She would continue to appear in several more animated shorts from the 1950s on, as a foil for Sylvester the Cat, who was always attempting to eat her pet bird, Tweety, a pudgy-faced yellow canary.

Solo appearancesEdit

Although she was almost always shown onscreen with her two animal companions, Granny could occasionally be seen in an animated short without them. For example, in the 1953 short, Hare Trimmed, she starred as a woman who was being fought over by two suitors, Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny (the latter out to thwart the former's evil plan). Sam called her "Emma" and later "Emmy". Another one was the 1965 short Corn on the Cop, where she appears alongside Daffy Duck and Porky Pig as two Keystone Cops who mistake her for a crook disguised like her. She is in this story addressed as "Mrs. Webster" by a passing policeman.

Later appearancesEdit

More recently, she has appeared as a professor at Acme Looniversity and the mentor and favorite teacher of Mary Melody in Tiny Toon Adventures, a regular character in The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, and a timekeeper inBugs Bunny and Taz Time Busters. Granny and Witch Hazel donned cheerleader uniforms for the Toonsquad in the movie Space Jam, and the children's grandmother and new character Floyd's aunt in Baby Looney Tunes. She made two cameo appearance in Looney Tunes: Back in Action, although in one of those appearances this "Granny" was actually the Acme Chairman in disguise. She also appeared in Bah, Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmasand in Tweety's High-Flying Adventure.

MCF Stories Edit

In the Mystery Case Files Series, she takes Emmy into an orphanage she runs and raises her like a mother. Despite her being her mother figure, she is concerned that there were no people to adopt Emmy, the same way the orphan lady in "Bah Humduck" was when Daffy was supposed to be adopted. 

In "MCF and the Parent Case", she was captured by King Goobot along with the ohter adults and the MCF and the other kids have to rescue them.
