    Mother knows best.

    Take it from your mumsy.

    On your own you won't survive.

    Sloppy, underdressed,

    Immature, clumsy, Please!

    They'll eat you up alive!

    Mother Gothel is the Disney's version of the evil witch Mother Gothel from the fairy tale Rapunzel. She is voiced by Donna Murphy.

    Like Claude Frollo she takes care of her foster child, but unlike him and Lady Tremaine she shows some kindness to her adoptive daughter. However, their relationship is not a healthy one and can be considered abusive. Mother Gothel commonly demeans Rapunzel while praising herself. She keeps Rapunzel locked in doors "for her own good," and uses her magical hair to preserve her youth. Their relationship is hard to define as all good or all bad.


    In Dynamites Damsels she is The Queen of Caumont, using the name Rapunzel. she seems by default to be the dominant ruler of the city due to her husband's blindness. Although she could likely be a much more aggressive monarch due to her husband's disability, she seems to be kind and happy to care for and support her husband, King Persine. When the palace is intruded upon during the royal visit by the King and Queen of Perrault, it is Rapunzel who intervenes and kills the intruder (a fairy she crushes with her hands, calm midst the panicking crowd).

    She later uses the help of Talia to cast a spell that allows her husband's voice to implant its message into their citizens, suggesting that while she is supportive of her husband, she also takes advantage of the ability to manipulate him without his knowledge
