Leela's grandmother is an unnamed, elderly mutant human who lived most of her life in the sewers before the mutant rights revolution of 3010.

Character description

She has 4 tentacles, one regular arm and 3 eyes, and originally had the same purple hair colour as her daughter, granddaughter and mother, but greyed with age.

According to Turanga Munda, she is "nuts". However, as of "I Know What You Did Next Xmas," she appears to be on good enough terms with her family to celebrate Xmas with them. She also approves of her granddaughter's relationship with Philip J. Fry, imploring Leela to marry him after his charming re-introduction.

As a child in 2912, working on the Land Titanic.


Leela's grandmother was born sometime in the early 2900s or late 2890s. When she was a little girl, she labored in less than ideal conditions aboard the Land Titanic as a drain angel, and almost died with it when it sank. She and her mother were saved by Mr. Astor, who offered them his seat in a Life Car, his sacrifice eventually leading to his own mutation. At some point, she had a daughter, Munda. She doesn't meet her granddaughter until the Devolution Revolution in 3010, as her story helps convince Mrs. Astor to free the mutants.


Additional Information



    Leela's grandmother: I was just a young girl, drain angels they called us. When the ship started going down, my mother grabbed me and made for the nearest Life Car. But the places were all taken by surface passengers. As my mother held me tight, I suddenly felt the gentle tap of a cane on my face. I turned to see the kindly smile of Mr. Astor. Thanks to your husband's humanity, I lived to raise my own daughter, and she, a daughter in turn.
    Turanga Leela: Mom, why have I never heard this?
    Turanga Munda: My mother's nuts.
