Ma Beagle is a recurring villain from DuckTales. She is the mother of the seven main Beagle Boys seen in the show and the matriarch of the clan. She was voiced by June Foray.


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 premiere, "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. According to the Dutch one-pager Moeder (2012), the Beagle Boys were often left alone for weeks during their youth when their mother was in prison.

In Don Rosa 's The Beagle Boys vs. the Money Bin, one Beagle Boy briefly mentions his mother when recalling the reason why he doesn't know his actual name.

In more recent comic appearances, such as the Dutch Disney comic Honds Behandeld (2011), she was given a slighly younger appearance. In this comic, the Beagle Boys visit their mother and we meet Ma Beagle's aged dog Brutus.


  • She is a spoof of a famous criminal mastermind known as Ma Barker.
  • The Beagle Boys' aunt Corrie from the Dutch comic Een Slang Voor Een Suikertante (2004) was originally intended to be their mother [1].
