How dare you steal what my boys rightfully stole first!
~ Ma Beagle.

Ma Beagle is one of the main antagonists of Ducktales and its 2017 reboot series serves the mother of the Beagle Boys and their leader.

She was voiced by the late June Foray in DuckTales, who also voiced Natasha Fatale, Lucifer, Witch Hazel, Witch Hazel, Sour Kangaroo, Wheezy and Magica De Spell, and by Margo Martindale in the 2017 DuckTales series.


1987 series

Ma Beagle, based on the real-life Ma Barker and the mystification around her, is the mother of the seven common Beagle Boys featured on the original DuckTales series (named Bigtime, Burger, Bouncer, Baggy, Bankjob, Bugle/Bebop, and Babyface) and the clan matriarch. She often smuggles hand grenades, chainsaws, and other tools in baked goods which easily pass prison security to help her sons escape from jail.

Although she appears to be more competent than her children she is always outwitted by Scrooge and his nephews. However she avoids being arrested in season 1 and in season 2 she takes a more active role until she is finally arrested.

2017 reboot

Ma Beagle returns in the reboot series and continues to be the leader of the Beagle boys and as one of the four leading villains alongside Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold, and Mark Beaks. She is more mean and abusing towards her sons in this series. She has a grudge against Scrooge for stealing the deed of her Grandpa Beagle as mayor.


  • Ma Beagle seems to be the female counterpart of Grandpa Beagle who served as one of the main villains in the Duck comics and seems to be his stand-in in the TV series DuckTales.
