Voiced by: Brock Baker
A cop seen in several of the jokes.

     Mamas (and Daddies) 

American Mama

The subject of all American jokes.
  • Eagleland: Of the boorish variety.
  • Fantastic Racism: Since she's a proud American, she doesn't like Mexicans and the French, and once had her shadow arrested because it wasn't white. She also built the wall before Donald Trump. She also reported on Frankie's dog because he's a German Shepard.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: She speaks with something of a southern inflection, though it's hard to exactly place.

Bald Daddy

The subject of all bald dad jokes.
  • Bald of Awesome: So much that it makes Mr. Clean jealous. He also makes a good substitute teacher for Baldi.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Literally, at one point. When he was showering, he got brainwashed into washing people's hair.

Drunk Daddy

The subject of all drunk jokes.

Evil Mama

The subject to all the evil jokes.

Fat Mamas & Dummy Thicc Daddy

The subjects of all the fat (or dummy thicc) jokes. The blond one is named Shirley.

Hairy Mama & Hairy Daddy

The subjects of all the hairy jokes.

Hot Mama

The subject of all the hot jokes.


The subject of all the Karen jokes.
  • Hate Sink: Naturally, as "Karen" is a stereotype for middle-aged women who are entitled assholes that always bitch about everything when things don't go their way, and the character embodies this.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: When she gets mad, which is pretty often.
  • Palette Swap: She looks identical to the American Mama, with only her shirt and hairstyle being changed.

Lazy Mama

The subject of all the lazy jokes.

Old Mama (Janice)

The subject of all the old jokes.
  • Ambiguously Human: One video speculates that she might be an alien. She is also seen with alien supervisors when visiting the Garden of Eden as a kid.
  • Coitus Ensues: She apparently has snagged various men throughout her long life, including the Burger King and Gandalf. Not really necessary given the connecting jokes, though.
  • Historical Longevity Joke: Since the jokes are technically supposed to be about your mom, some of hers qualify.
  • Elderly Immortal: In most of the flashbacks, she still appears as the old woman she is in the present day.
  • Neologism: Her first word was the first word. ("Fire", naturally.)
  • No Name Given: Subverted, thanks to Yo Mama's Spooky Meme we're finally given her name. It's Janice.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Though she appears to be an old woman, some of the jokes would require this.
  • Start of Darkness: Apparently the one responsible for Baldi's ruler-slapping.
  • Vague Age: She pre-ordered the Bible and was Moses's classmate in grade school.

Poor Mama

The subject of all the poor jokes. Married to Drunk Daddy.

Rich Mama

The subject of all the rich jokes

Short Mama

The subject of all the short jokes.
  • Coitus Ensues: She was once gang-banged by the LEGO guys, much to Brody's disgust.
  • Cursed With Awesome: Baldi from Baldi's Basics couldn't find her because she was too short to be seen.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: She kills herself by jumping off the bed and, in another episode, one of the Fat Mamas ate her (while she hanglided using a Dorito).
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: According to the license photo short, her full name is "Some Hella Shortass Mama".
  • Your Size May Vary: From just tall enough to sit in a car without a booster seat to short enough to fit under the door.

Skinny Mama

The subject of all the skinny jokes.

Slimy Mama

The subject of all the slimy jokes.

Smart Mama

The subject of all smart jokes.

Strict Mama

The subject of all strict jokes. She's a police officer alongside Frank, who's her husband.
  • Scary Black Woman: Oh yes! She can hold even Thanos hostage until all his homework is finished.

Strong Mama

The subject of all the strong jokes.

Stupid Mamas

The subjects of all the stupid jokes.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: All three of them.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: One of these moms actually KO'd a gay boxer (whom she thought was the definition of 'fruit punch').
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Usually ends up in situations revolving around these, from going on a hunting trip in an attempt to catch some sleep to getting hit by a cup and reporting a mugging to order a Big Mac at the Apple store.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: The brunette one died in a grocery store and a blonde one froze to death.
  • Those Two Guys: Sometimes one of the Fat Mamas is on the same page as one of the Stupid Mamas.
  • Too Dumb to Live: On one occasion a Stupid Mama actually died in the grocery store.

Tall Mama

The subject of all the tall jokes.

Ugly Mamas

The subjects of all the ugly jokes. The brunette one is named Linda and is married to Dummy Thicc Daddy.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: All three of them.
  • Butt-Monkey: The Ugly Mamas often get the worst ends of the sticks, from getting arrested after staring out the window, to making blind kids cry.
  • Cursed With Awesome: On the other hand, their looks help scare off the likes of various scary ghouls, including Creepypasta characters and slasher villains (even Freddy Krueger and Chuckie).
  • Dude, Not Funny!: At the end of jokes involving her, the red haired ugly mom will usually turn to look at the camera with an unamused expression on her face.
  • Fan Disservice: And HOW!
  • Gonk: But of course.
  • Scary Teeth: Usually sports these and/or skin tags.
  • Taken for Granite: Are ugly enough to turn people to stone. You can even ask Medusa herself! Oh wait...
  • Team Rocket Wins: The black haired one got the jumpscare from the Scary Maze Game to quit, and the redhead one walked out of a haunted house with a job application. She also instantly won a game of Super Smash Bros, and doesn't have to worry about blue shells in Mario Kart.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: The brunette one was crushed when a transformer transformed with her inside, and the redhead died from looking at a mirror on a toilet.

How well does it match the trope?
