Aunt Gertrude is the deceased aunt of Muriel Bagge.

History[]

Despite her being deceased, Gertrude was mentioned numerous times throughout the show.

Her first appearance was in Shirley the Medium, where Shirley accidentally called up her spirit, and it was shown that she and Muriel had shared an amiable familial relationship - they warmly inquired after each other's well-being, and Gertrude even advised Muriel to use vinegar in her culinary recipes. This eventually became one of the running gags throughout the series, where Muriel would always use too much vinegar, though strange to say, her cooking always turned out to be remarkably delicious because of it.

Also, in Tulip's Worm, Muriel claimed that a cloud formation looked like Gertrude, but only "without the ugly mole".
