Editorial Reviews

Mama's Family, the delightfully offbeat TV comedy whose successful run spanned from 1983 to 1990, originally began as a skit on the legendary Carol Burnett Show.

From the first time the wildly-popular sketch "The Family" aired on "The Carol Burnett Show" in 1974, Vicki Lawrence has been followed by a buxom, blue-haired, purse-lipped, 65-year-old widow. This is, of course, Thelma Mae Crowley Harper, Lawrence's indelible, abrasive and smart alecky alter ego who would eventually be spun-off into her own delightfully offbeat sitcom "Mama's Family," which debuted on NBC on January 22, 1983 and ran for six seasons. Set in the fictional city of Raytown, MAMA'S FAMILY revolves around the eye-opening escapades of the Harper clan, headed by formidable matriarch, Mama Harper, a fiery-tempered no-nonsense woman who does not suffer fools gladly. In fact, she makes everybody suffer a little with her patented snappy retorts that truly put the "diss" in dysfunction. Across 130 episodes viewers were treated to family comedy of the highest degree. Bonus Features:
o The original TV movie Eunice: Featuring Carol Burnett, Vicki Lawrence & others
o Family History: A Classic "Family" sketch from The Carol Burnett Show
o Featurette: Mama's family Tree: The Branches
o Featurette: Mama's family Tree: The Roots (All About Mama and Fran)
o Interviews: Vicki Lawrence Interviews Mama ; Vicki Lawrence interviews Carol Burnett ; Betty White

I've loved Mama's Family ever since growing up in the 80s! And I think Vicki Lawrence is such a talent - love to watch her!

And I love it when there is a great value: getting two DVD sets (two seasons) in one go! I already knew that when they re-released season 1, pretty much uncut, it was going to be a great product. Of course it's 100 times better than the first issuing! Love the extras too: The extras on season 2 are phenomenal, especially the Vicki and Carol interview!!!

I really hope that the remaining 4 seasons will be released individually and soon! Buying the Time-Life complete series would be more expensive for me because they do not ship internationally and I'd have to bug someone in the states to worry about s+h to Finland :-/ So, as long as the remaining 4 seasons will be available individually (why wouldn't they???) I don't mind waiting!

Note: This is just a combination set of the first two seasons, either of the seasons can be purchased individually. You might want to check comparative pricing to see which buying option makes the most sense.

Beginning in 1983, NBC brought the popular "The Family" sketches from The Carol Burnett Show to life with this raucous sitcom based on those unforgettable characters. In most cases, the sketch format never quite succeeds when extended beyond a few minutes (witness the slate of failed SNL movies), but there was something inherently relatable about the tacky and confrontational Harper clan that struck a chord with America. We could laugh at the over-the-top spectacle while still seeing the heart and truth underneath their wild shenanigans. The show lasted an impressive six seasons, and has lived on in perpetuity in syndication. Earlier efforts to bring Mama to the DVD market were met with enormous hostility by stalwart fans. The shows were in tatters thanks to the endless cycle of syndication which chopped both the witty introductions and major portions of the program from existence. Star Vista (in conjunction with Time Life) has sought to remedy this injustice with a recent Complete Series release reconfigured from the original Broadcast masters. And while the results may not be perfect (some musical numbers are still notably absent), this is probably as good as it's going to get. If you aren't able to pick up the financial burden of the Complete Series (current suggested price 199.95), Seasons One and Two have been dropped individually.

Being a big Carol Burnett fan, naturally I would like Mama's Family (an offshoot of the Carol Burnett Show). I would recommend to 2 disc set to any fan!

Who doesn't love Carol Burnett and these cast of characters. Even though I watched this show many times I still laugh at this crazy family.
