    Veteran character actress and voice artist Bea Benaderet was originally considered for the role of Granny. Revisions in the character were made so that she would be more like "Mammy Yokum" in Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" cartoon strip. Benaderet was too large and "busty" to fit that image. It was reportedly Benaderet herself who suggested Irene Ryan for the role, who by all accounts came in and "blew everyone away" with a wonderful screen test, which still survives today and is included as an extra on the DVD set.
