Nora Shepherd, is one of the supporting characters in the original 1995 Film and its 2019 sequel, portrayed by Bebe Neuwirth and frequently appears in the animated series, voiced by Melanie Chartoff.
Nora is very beautiful, "particular", but she is also a strong willed woman, able to make firm decisions on her adopted children. Her determination to convert the Parrish Mansion into her dream bed and breakfast Inn was foiled by Peter's trauma causing him to have problems at his new school from his silent demeanor and Judy's lies often led to fallings out with her. Nora's hidden timidness was put to the test when the presence of Bats in her new house scared her more than she would like to admit, but her encounters with a stampede, a Monkey, Pod, Crocodiles, Lion, and a transformed Peter proved to be far too much for her to bear.
