The Electric Grandmother
 1982 | NBC Television, Highgate Pictures

Based on a Ray Bradbury short story, The Electric Grandmother stars Maureen Stapleton as the robot grandmother “adopted” by a motherless, grieving family. This children’s program merges science and technology with basic human values. Stapleton’s robot is not merely an android servant; her boundless energy is matched by great cheer and an ear for classic literature. This outstanding program teaches that there is room for humanity in the technological future.
