Brenda Sparks is the mother of Billy Sparks and Bobbi Sparks and wife to Herschel Sparks. She appears in the series spinoff "Young Sheldon" where she is a neighbor of Sheldon and his family.

Character Overview

Young Sheldon

Brenda works at the bowling alley that Meemaw frequently goes to.

She constantly yells at and bosses her husband Herschel. As George is bossed around by his wife Mary, this leads to the two men both bond over how they are often dominated by their wives.

Personality

Brenda is rather shrewish and bad-tempered. She and Mary clash often and seems to have no redeeming qualities.

Despite clashing with Mary, there are two moments where they sympathize with each other. In "A Party Invitation, Football Grapes and an Earth Chicken", Brenda and Mary acknowledge that they both have difficulty dealing with children that are considered strange and unpopular, Mary with Sheldon, and Brenda with Billy. The second time is in "A Secret Letter and a Lowly Disc of Processed Meat", where she catches Mary outside sulking and begins to mock her. But when she sees that Mary is genuinely distressed, she apologizes and invites Mary over for drinks where they talk about how they worry about their children’s futures.
