What started as a skit on the Carol Burnett Show became an incredibly successful sitcom that ran from 1983 through 1990 and tickled the funny bone of all who watched the antics of Mama and the gang. Mama (Vicki Lawrence) was a woman of foul temperament. She took no sass but gave plenty of it whether it was her sister Fran (Rue McClanahan) or her son Vinton (Ken Berry). Mama was especially pleased to verbally skewer her sons girlfriend, Naomi (Dorothy Lyman) whom she thought had hit every branch of the stupid tree while falling out of it. While paying homage to its roots, there were numerous guest appearances by Carol Burnett portraying Mama's daughter Eunice. A true classic in every sense of the word, Mama's Family should not be missed.
