―Sarah Wiggum
Clancy! Use the remote!
―Sarah Wiggum reacting after Chief Wiggum shoots the television

Sarah Wiggum (née Kanneke)[1] is the soft wife of Clancy and mother of Ralph.

She has a nasal-likely voice but her personality isn't very established beyond the fact that she seems to be a loyal wife to Chief Wiggum.

Criminal Record


Clancy mentions she was more beautiful at that moment than the day he arrested her.[2] She giggles in reply. He then mentions he only planted the crystal meth on her so she would "notice" him. Sarah (according to Clancy) is his "home force". At one time, she immediately dials the authorities at Clancy's command as a reference to the old-fashioned operator who had the stereotypical name "Sarah."

Video Games

The Simpsons Game, when you talk to Sarah, all she says is 'Clancy' (referring to her husband). This includes when you attack her and when she runs away screaming. Chief Wiggum mentions her during the Duff Ultimate Eating Challenge saying that the food was so much better than her cooking.

In August 2018 Sarah was added as a Premium Character to Tapped Out in a bundle which also contains the Springfield Aquarium. She is one of the 'Alcoholic' characters as her tasks include the hour-task of attending AA Meetings with characters such as Bernice Hibbert and Barney. The Sarah Wiggum/Springfield Aquarium bundle reappeared during the Black Friday 2018 event as one of the prizes inside selected mystery crates.
