Mrs. Gumble was the mother of Barney Gumble, the widow of Arnie Gumble, and the sister-in-law of Al Gumble. She bears a significant resemblance to her son in both her appearance and her behavior.


When Barney's adult diaper flew off, he chased after it down the street and on the corner of the street he said "Hiya, ma!".[1]

When the navy officer said, the navy recruits didn't have there mothers there to help them, and Barney said that he did and pointed to his mother and she burped. Mrs. Gumble was then assigned to the U.S.S. Jebediah, alongside her son. Later, when Captain Tenille told Barney, who was asleep, to open the torpedo tube, she said that he'll never get a response to her son like that and she said you have to poke he with a stick and Barney said that he didn't want to go to school today.[2]

While at Lenny's party, Barney said that he was going to put the centerpiece of the table he was sitting at on his mother's grave.[3]

She, however, appears alive afterwards when his son become forcibly sober due the Antibooze drug, getting moved away by him once he grabbed the antidote afterwards.[4]
