One funny granny that is Betty White has appeared in the latest promo of "Community". The hard-working 88-year-old apparently confuses herself of which next TV show she has landed a guest starring stint on.

"Hi, I'm Betty White. Watch me in the season premiere of 'Glee'," White said before a voice behind the camera reminds her that it's not FOX's "Glee" she's going to appear in. The intended joke is to promote the return of NBC's half-hour comedy "Community" on September 23.
