- Sweet Marlene! You're not even a grandma!
- --Mother Mae-Eye in "Grandma Voice"
Mother Mae-Eye first appeared in the episode "Pie Bros." In the episode, Mother Mae-Eye runs her own pie shop. One day, when the Titans were eating, Raven jokingly tells the team that she has heard that the secret ingredient in Mother Mae-Eye's pie are people. Later, she hypnotizes an elderly man, then takes him to the kitchen. Soon afterwards, she is seen taking a worker of hers. We later see her hypnotizing Robin, Starfire and Raven at Cyborg's birthday party, taking them to her kitchen to dump them in her oven. At the end of the episode we see her tied up by the Titans, who are missing some pieces of clothing because she had attempted to cook the three Titans into pies, however, the pies were made entirely out of clothes.
