Description by OLDIES.com:
Fans of classic television will love Mama's Family
, the delightfully offbeat TV comedy whose successful run spanned from 1983 to 1990. This wacky sitcom originally began as a skit on the legendary Carol Burnett Show
. As portrayed by Vicki Lawrence, the formidable Mama put the "diss" in dysfunctional. Mama dispenses no-nonsense motherly advice, discipline, and verbal kicks in the backside. There's her nervous sister Fran (Rue McClanahan), slowwitted son Vint (Ken Berry), his bubble-headed girlfriend (and later wife) Naomi (Dorothy Lyman). Plus frequent appearances by Betty White as Mama's snobbish daughter, Ellen, and Carol Burnett as Mama's uptight daughter (and anger-management-class failure) Eunice. As you may guess, this isn't the Brady Bunch!
Season 1 was previously released by Warner Home Video, but only with syndicated masters. This release came from the original broadcast masters, and includes all new bonus material and interviews. This 3-DVD set includes all 13 original broadcast episodes from Season 1 of Mama's Family.
