- “The only thing she's ever dusted off were her fingerprints!”

Ma Beagle always bails out her sons by providing cakes or other goods with means of breaking out of prison hidden inside. She's far more competent then her children, but even then tends to fail because Scrooge McDuck and the nephews always find a way to outwit the Beagle Boys.
An interesting note regarding Ma Beagle is that whenever she appeared in the first season, she was often the only Beagle to escape successfully. This trait notably seems to disappear in the later seasons. In the second season premier, "Time is Money", it is implied that she was eventually arrested; when Big Time disguises himself as an elderly woman, Burger initially mistakes him for Ma, saying "She must've broke out of jail!" Additionally, two episodes in the show's later seasons, "The Bride Wore Stripes" and "New Gizmo-Kids on the Block", end with Ma Beagle going to jail along with her sons.
- She is a spoof of a famous criminal mastermind known as Ma Barker.
- Although Ma's husband, Papa Beagle, does not appear in the TV series, he was briefly shown on a wanted poster in Only a Poor Old Man.
