A slice of vintage TV from 1983, MAMA'S FAMILY is a genial comedy spun around the activities of a Midwestern family who just can't get along. Central character Mama (Vicki Lawrence) lives with her sister Fran (Rue McClanahan) and son Vint (Ken Berry). To add to the melee, Vint's wife Naomi (Dorothy Lyman) and two children from Vint's previous marriage, teenagers Buzz and Sonja, also reside in the overstuffed house. Meanwhile, Mama's two other daughters, Eunice (Carol Burnett) and Ellen (Betty White), frequently stop by to cause further chaos. Aside from the laughs the show is notable for its pairing of McClanahan and White, who both went on to enjoy enormously successful stints in hit show THE GOLDEN GIRLS. The entire first season of MAMA'S FAMILY is collected here.
