Grandpere (Henri Frederique de Tigre)

First MRN Appearance

Performed By

Grandpere (Henri Frederique de Tigre[1])lives in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe at the Eiffel Tower -- very near King Friday's castle. He speaks French and often teaches his Neighbors what French words mean.

Grandpere is the grandfather of Collette, the daughter of his son. Occasionally, Collette comes to visit her grandfather in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.[2][3]

Grandpere generously shares his Tower with Dr. Bill Platypus whose office is located inside. Additionally, he calmly exercises patience with his Neighbors when they turn the Tower into a mountain[4] or even turn it upside down.[5]
