- Sweet Marlene! You're not even a grandma!
- --Mother Mae-Eye in "Grandma Voice"
Mother Mae-Eye is a elderly criminal in Teen Titans Go!. Although she seems like a sweet and innocent baker at first, Mother Mae-Eye is really a coldblooded, pie-making villain at heart. Her first appearance in the series is "Pie Bros".
The debut of Mother May-Eye into the series is in "Pie Bros". In this episode, Mother Mae-Eye ran her own pie shop. One day, when the Teen Titans were having some lunch, Raven jokingly told the team that she has heard the secret ingredient in Mother Mae-Eye's pies were people. Later, she hypnotized an elderly man, and then took him to the kitchen. Soon afterwards, she was seen taking an employee of hers. We later saw her hypnotizing Starfire, Raven and Robin at Cyborg's birthday party, taking them to her kitchen to dump them in her pie oven. At the end of the episode, Mother Mae-Eye was defeated and tied up by the Titans, who are missing some pieces of clothing because she had attempted to cook the three Titans into pies.
Downtown Jump City pits Mother Mae-Eye head on with the Titans once more in "Grandma Voice". She easily takes out Robin, Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire, but Cyborg was able to get the best of the granny when he himself acted like his own energetic grandma, to the point of impersonating her voice. Near the end of the episode, Mother Mae-Eye captured the Titans in her pie baking machine once again (although it was by there own doing), and Cyborg, also known as Grandma, came to their rescue. The two engaged each other in a Grandma Fight, and Mae-Eye manages to slam a rolling pin on Cyborg's head, which brought him back to his old self. After a volley of laser charges, Mother Mae-Eye tried to escape via floating umbrella, but she was shot down by Cyborg with ease.
With rather short stature, Mother Mae-Eye appears to be quite kind and polite- at least that's as she APPEARS... she wears a pink dress with a large white collar. She is most often found with her apron with a small eye design on it, fastened by a big bow on her back. She wears black boots, along with a very dark broach. As for Mother Mae-Eye's hat, it's short of shaped like a large mushroom, with light pink spots dotting the pink hat. A white bow finishes it off. Her hair is well kempt, and her face is usually calm/delightful.
All the delight leaves her when she goes full villainous witch on you. Her teeth turn yellow and jagged, wrinkles furl up from her neck, and her eyes turn a vicious yellow color. Also, the center spot on her hat opens up to reveal a gigantic third eye, very spooky.

- This version of Mother Mae-Eye appears to have been inspired by Sweeney Todd, who also bakes pies out of people.
