Giles's cartoon grandma statue returns to Ipswich By Andrew Woodger "I've never worked out whether Grandma is grinning or grimacing" One of Ipswich's most famous ladies has a new plinth to rest on.

Biography[ edit ] Granny is a good-natured widow who is extremely protective of her beloved canary, Tweety. Granny's overprotectiveness becomes apparent whenever Tweety is threatened, usually by Sylvester. Although having the appearance of a kindly old woman, Granny has demonstrated her cleverness in many cartoons. At least until the mids, Granny is depicted as an elderly spinster who wears spectacles, a gray bun and a late 19th-century-like schoolmarm dress; other old fashioned characteristics include her mode of transportation usually, a Ford Model T or a horse and buggy and her inability to relate to present fads such as her telling Tweety she's about to try on a new " bikini bathing suit", which turns out to be a full one-piece outfit from the turn-of-theth century. After — in particular, the years after Foray began voicing the character — the character's wardrobe was updated and her old-fashioned tastes and ways of life were de-emphasized, and she was sometimes given newer careers, such as a nurse or a bus driver. Subsequent appearances of a similar "granny" character included The Cagey Canary , directed by Bob Clampett ; Hiss 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.
