Wanda Deegan[2] is Prunella and Rubella's mother. She enjoys yoga and granola. Her husband never appeared in the series, however Unknown Male Adult Poodle may be her husband because they have been seen together and sometimes with Prunella and Rubella, but he is never seen in their house, so it is most likely that she may be either widowed or divorced, though her maiden name is unknown.

Wanda is a kind-hearted character. She enjoys doing yoga with Prunella and her friends.
