Grandpa and Grandma

Source of image from:

In Pixar's film Up, Carl Fredricksen's voice is played by Edward Asner. Mr. Fredricksen isn't the only animated character Asner has played.
  • He voiced the goodhearted gruff cop Cosgrove from Freakazoid!
  • The wise elder Hudson from Disney's Gargoyles.
  • Peter Parker's boss, J. Jonah Jameson, from Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
Out of all the characters he's voiced, there has been one that I couldn't believe he did.

Source of image from:

He voiced Granny Goodness, one of Darkseid's evil superiors from Superman: The Animated Series. When I first heard her voice I was confused and thought she was a guy. Surprisingly, Asner's performance works well with Granny. It brings out the sick twisted controlling witch that she is.

Up belongs to Pixar.
Granny Goodness belongs to Warner Bros./DC comics.
