Mamma's Family will always be one of my favorite shows. It is timeless comedy that isn't too crude and isn't too childish. I can't see myself ever not enjoying the reruns.
When I was younger, I thought Vicki Lawrence was really a little old lady. Boy was I surprised when I saw her at an award's ceremony. Now when I watch, it is painfully obvious that she is in a get-up, but it doesn't take away from the reality of the show. I love it!
The additional characters are also wonderful. Iola is a lady that you love and hate at the same time. She is quite annoying, but such a good friend. You have to love her 1,000 ideas for cozies. Vint and Naomi are also easy to love and hate. Together, the cast truly makes the show a classic that will never go out of style.
