Storyline

In a small British town, there is an old lady who is making the best of her weak condition. However, the small time criminal mastermind, Scunner Campbell, has stolen a new invention that he hopes will grant superpowers to himself; as soon as he makes it work that is. However, a botched firing makes the beam go astray and it hits the Grannie instead. Suddenly, the lady gains super strength and speed to become the local superhero, Supergran. Now, Supergran protects her town from the forces of evil, although Scunner Campbell is not exactly a major challenge. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

nostalgia pure
14 September 2000 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Few people remember this rather bizarre series from the mid-80ties about a grandmother with super powers. I remember I used to watch it every week for as long as it was on (I must have been about six years old), and it's a shame I haven't seen it since, although I'm not sure it is as funny and exciting as I remember. Right up there with Bananaman, M.A.S.K and He-Man as my all-time favourite (cartoon) series. Or is it mere nostalgia ?
