Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty is a six-minute-long CG/flash animated socially satirical black comedy short film, directed by Nicky Phelan and produced by Darragh O'Connell of Brown Bag Films in 2008. It was written by Kathleen O'Rourke. The plot centres on Granny O'Grimm, a seemingly sweet old lady, who loses the plotline as she tells her own version of Sleeping Beauty to her terrified granddaughter.

Granny O'Grimm started life as a character in a sketch in Kathleen O'Rourke's comedy show. Director Nicky Phelan saw Granny O’Grimm’s potential as an animated character and, with Brown Bag Films, production began in 2008. Kathleen O'Rourke reprised her role to voice the character in the short film. The film received funding from the Irish Film Board, RTÉ and the Arts Council through the ‘Frameworks’ scheme. It has received 11 national and international awards including the Newport Beach Film Festival (Outstanding Achievement in Short Films), Cinegael Montreal (Audience Award, Best Short) and the Heart of Gold Film Festival, Australia (Best Comedy).[1][2]

In January 2010, the film was nominated for Best Animated Short Film at the 82nd Academy Awards.[3] It was also included in the Animation Show of Shows.
