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.
In the show's first season, whenever Ma Beagle appeared, she was often the only Beagle to successfully escape and avoid being arrested by the police. 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!" (Presumably, she was finally caught after she and her sons robbed the bank at the end of "Till Nephews Do Us Part".) Additionally, she is actually shown behind bars in "The Good Muddahs", and two later episodes, "The Bride Wore Stripes" and "New Gizmo-Kids on the Block", end with Ma Beagle going to jail.
