- Ma Beagle
Ma Beagle is a
fictionalcharacter created for the animated series" DuckTales". Based on the real-life Ma Barkerand the mystifications around her, she is the mother of the seven common Beagle Boysfeatured on the show, and the clan matriarch. She often smuggles hand grenades, chainsaws, and other tools in baked goods which easily pass prisonsecurity to help her sons escape from jail. Even when she is around, the Beagles never succeed because Scrooge McDuckand his nephews always outwit them. However, in most of the episodes she appears in (especially in the first season), she is able to avoid being arrested along with her sons; that way, she will be able to bust them out the next time she appears. In one episode, she pretended to be "married" to Scrooge so that she could steal his fortune, but her plans were thwarted by Webby and the nephews. She was voiced by actress June Foray, who also voiced Magica De Spell.
Ma Beagle first appeared in the episode Robot Robbers. Since then she has become a recurring character. She appeared more frequently in the second season than in the first.
