TV: G is for...

Gran

GRIZZLED GRIM stop motion gadabout involving unnamed senior citizen and grandson. Cue endless roller-skating and other decidedly un-octogenarian antics, a la The Beano’s annoying Granpa. Cloying theme remains all-too memorable: “Hello Gran, how are you, how do you feel today, I just dropped by to see if I could be a help in any way. You really are the most, I think that I can boast, you really are the most amazing Gran.”

    I think the theme tune was actually
    “You really are the most, I really like to boast, you really are the most surprising gran”
    But it has been a while so I might be wrong 🙂

    Notable for using models from Postman Pat as background characters, such as Peter Fogg in “Gran’s Bike” (here named as ‘Alf’) and Ted Glen and Alf Thompson watching Jim’s school play in the episode “Gran’s a Star”!

    My sister & I really liked the episode where Gran goes to the Zoo & adopts a monkey, mostly because it drinks some tea too fast & let’s out a big burp.

    This annoyed my Mum & she made sure it got videoed over.
