- “Stop all that whining, girl! Your name is 'Proud', not 'Punk'.”
- ―Suga Mama
Henrietta "Suga Mama" Proud is a hip, wrestling-loving grandma in The Proud Family who does Tae-bo.
Role in the series
She is very sassy, and always gets straight to the point when she talks. She constantly insults, discourages, and beats up Oscar, but she loves him deep down, stating "sometimes I like you, but I'll always love you. Remember that." Her age is unknown, and often made fun of by her son (although Trudy mentions that Suga Mama's driver's license expired in 1938). An event from twenty years ago shows her looking exactly the same as before. However, while slimming down to fit into a wedding dress, her diet was so successful, that she gained the slim and attractive body she had as a young woman. Suga Mama is in love with Papi. On the contrary, Papi despises Suga Mama and often makes rude remarks about her in Spanish, which she usually thinks are compliments. Suga Mama's big sister, Spice has Telekinesis. She shows extra amounts of love for her poodle, Puff. She repeatedly shows no respect for Oscar and prefers her other son, Bobby. However, during The Proud Family Movie, she finally gives him some respect and listens to him for once.
Her hair is shown to actually be a wig, and she hides money in it. In one episode where she tries to renew her driver's license, she says that her glasses do not work, and that Puff acts as her "eyes", meaning that Puff could be a seeing-eye dog.
- Suga Mama resembles and acts like Mama Odie from the The Princess and the Frog, which is another production the creator, Bruce W. Smith, created.
- In some episodes, Suga Mama's arm and leg muscles vary from thick to thin ones and vice versa.
