The Complete Collection of Granny Murray Sayings from Me Too on Cbeebies...

Me Too Cbeebies

I'm a Dad in the UK. So I LOVE "Me Too".
But after watching a hundred-odd episodes, more than once... I've involuntarily joined the cult who recognise the tune that goes with "I love my traaaaiiinnnn".

If you know how that phrase is sung, you're in it too.

Couldn't believe that Granny Murray's advice that's dispensed at the beginning of each show doesn't seem to have been catalogued anywhere on the web.

This is my gift to The Internet. The (almost) complete list of Granny Murray quotes.

You're welcome.

(Claude is her Taggart-style murdered husband though, am I right?)

Do you have any sayings or advice of your own?

Feel free to leave them below in the comments...

  1. "Don't help yourself to the biscuits in the cupboard."

  2. Granny Murray drives me fucking mad. It's more that little song and jiggle she does on the way into her house. It's been stuck in my head for several days now.

  3. 'Now remember, one of the best gadgets of all time is the bulldog clip.'
