LaVerne is Animal's mother, as seen in the book The Case of the Missing Mother. In her single appearance, she resembles an older, female version of Animal.

Formerly residing in a large house on Memory Lane, LaVerne moves and the change of address propels the plot, as Animal struggles to find his mother again. She also plays the drums and when finally discovered by Animal, she breaks a window apart with her bare hands to reach her offspring. The reunited pair perform a percussion duet as the final number in the Mother's Day show at the Muppet Theater.


  • The name "LaVerne" only appears in the 1983 edition of Case of the Missing Mother. In the 1984 book and record set, the character merely screams "Ahhh!" in place of her name. Richard Hunt supplied her voice on the record.
