Nettie Fine or Grandma Nettie was a fictional character on the long-running television sitcom, The Nanny. She was played by the late Marilyn Cooper, known primarily for her work on the Broadway stage.

Information Edit

Not much is known about Nettie. She first appeared in the episode Freida Needa Man, when Fred, Freida's fiancée, was sent to the hospital after dancing with Fran.

She made her second appearance in The Grandmas, when Sylvia threw Morty out of the house. It is shown that she is a heavy smoker like Yetta, and is quite friends with her, even though they sometimes argue on things.

Grandma Nettie is shown to be a bit of a kleptomaniac, like when she found an ashtray from a hotel in her purse. She, like Yetta, is sometimes forgetful too.

She really loves her children and grandchildren, but she despises her daughter in-law Sylvia very much, calling her a "tramp" once. She loves the color Hostess Snowball Pink, so everything in her apartment is Hostess Snowball Pink.
