As long as there have been mascots for theme parks, there have been areas to meet those characters in the parks. Quite often those areas have featured special photo areas depicting where those characters "live".
|In 1999 as a part of the "War on
Lines," Looney Tunes Seaport was added as a whole new children's area featuring
the Looney Tunes characters and a few of their houses.
|Perhaps the most elaborate of the
character houses built was Granny's House. The brightly colored little

in bright candy colors.
A large bright red doorbell, located just to the left of the front doorway, signaled the arrival of company at Granny's House.
|The little house
was jam-packed with two dimensional props including pictures of Tweety,
Sylvester, and Granny on the walls. Granny's sleeping dog Spike
the bulldog was also featured as a two dimensional cutout close to the
floor sleeping next to a bright yellow doorway.

included several literary works of art such as "Tweety and the
Beanstalk," "The Unexpected Pests," "Sandy Claws," and "Life With
The lines of the house were designed to look like a cartoon drawing with random angles and curves. With hardly any right angles in the entire structure, Granny's House was very reminiscent of the buildings found in Disneyland's Toontown.
