Joyce Griff is the mother of the title character of the TV series Stanley. She is redheaded and is the one who works. It is shown in "Whole Lotta Snakin' Goin' On" that she has ophidiophobia (meaning she is afraid of snakes).

In the episode "A Boy's Best Friend is His Fish", she once sees and hears an image of Harry and Elsie dancing and singing, but dismisses the fact that it is really them.
