The Nanny Wiki

Nettie Fine or Grandma Nettie is a character on The Nanny. She is portrayed by Marilyn Cooper.


Not much is known about Nettie. She first appeared in the episode Freida Needa Man, when Fred, Freida's fiancé, 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’s shown that she’s 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 hates 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.
