Editorial Reviews

Welcome to Oscar's Barbershop, recently inherited by Oscar's son Clifton. Clifton's got it made - a successful business, luck with the ladies- but he still lives with Mama. She rules the roost, and dispenses advice to everyone who'll listen (and some who won't). Clifton's sister Tracy, brother-in-law Leonard, friends Earl and Junior, barbershop regulars Wildcat and Josh; no one is spared from Mama's wisdom. And they wouldn't have it any other way. A hidden gem of 1970s television comedy, "That's My Mama" was a highlight in the careers of Clifton Davis and Jester Hairston (both of TV's "Amen") and Ted Lange (Isaac on "The Love Boat") and featured guest appearances by Tim Reid and Gordon Jump, both of whom went on to star in the hit show "WKRP in Cincinnati."

Unfortuately the practice of studios using the edited for syndication versions of shows rather than going back to the uncut masters (as seen on the network) continues with THAT'S MY MAMA. The majority of the shows are edited by about four minutes each, though a small number appear to be uncut. Not acceptable....I won't pay for edited product.

I wasn't born yet when That's My Mama originally aired but I caught it in reruns back in the early 80's when I was a kid. Well it has been over 20 years since I have seen it air on television so I was very happy to hear that it was finally being released on DVD. In fact I was shocked since this show has never gotten the respect that it deserves. This is a very funny show that launched the careers of a few stars that we would later come to love on other shows. But this is the show were it started and it was finally being released on DVD. Well imagaine my anger when I found at that this release does not contain the orignal episodes as they first aired. This set is made up of the edited/cut syndicated episodes. Now while I have only seen the syndicated episodes I still prefer to have the original episodes as the aired in the first place. This is yet another example of studios rushing the release of a television show to make quick money rather than taking their time, putting in some effort and doing it right. Studios will continue doing this to us the consumer as long as we keep buying their inferior product. Accept nothing less than the orignal versions. This show deserves a proper unedited release.

I can't believe it. Another TV show on DVD with syndicated/edited episodes. Why are they doing this? Great show, lousy DVD treatment.

I was too young to remember this show as a child, so I was curious to see it on DVD. I was very pleased with this show. It is unfortunate it only ran for such a short time. I found it to be a pretty funny show. I only rate it 3 stars, however, due to this set being syndicated versions. The action takes place in Wasington D.C., in Clifton & Mama's home & Clifton's barber shop he inherited from his father, which is attached to the house. The series ran on ABC, from September 4, 1974 to December 24, 1975.

This is a 3 disc set, containing 26 episodes:

Disc 1 Episodes 1-9:

1. Whose Child Is This: A woman claims Clifton is the father of her child.

2. Honesty Day: When a couple of little white lies backfire, Clifton initiates an "honesty day." No one can fib for 24 hours.

3. Clifton's Dubious Romance-Mama's matchmatching pays off when she intorduces Clifton to her friend's daughter, Polly, but Clifton's friend Earl knows Polly, and her man-crazy rep, from the past.

4. Counsin Albert-Mama wished Clifton was successful like his cousin Albert, what mama doesn't know is how Albert makes his money.

5. Clifton's Sugar Mama-An old friend of mamas comes to town and she only has eyes for Clifton.

6. Clifton's Big Move-Clifton contemplates moving out.

7. Mama Steps Out-Mama's in love.

8. The Loan-Tensions flare when Clifton tries to collect a loan from his brother-in-law.

9. Clifton's Con-An army friend of Clifton's shows up. Mama is more than welcoming but what will she say when she finds out he is an ex-con?

Disc 2-episodes 10-18

10. Clifton's Persuasion- Clifton's faith is in doubt, while Mama tries to persuade him to attend church.

I remember That's My Mama fondly because of how funny it was and how talented the cast was. It may not have had a long run, but like Buffalo Bill (also coming on DVD soon), the talented cast went on to bigger and better things. That's My Mama should have had a longer run. ABC (who doesn't learn from their mistakes) took the show in it's second season, new producers came in and made the show, quite frankly a little depressing. The fun time in the barber shop was over and the recession was on. That coupled with cast changes and a weak lead in show, caused this should have been classic to expire on Xmas Eve 1975. A good show that should have had a four or five year run. ABC would make similar mistakes with Mork and Mindy a few years later with similar results. I am glad to see it back again and I have ordered both seasons. I recommend you at least buy the first season, you won't be sorry.

This is a great comedy that's warm and funny without ever being offensive. It's a nice picture of the 70s as well. It is a positive example of middle class black family life. It's a great show that should have ran for at least 5 seasons.

That's My Mama was a short lived sitcom which aired on ABC from 1974-1975.Although it's run was short, it was a muched beloved show with many memorable characters including Clifton Curtis(Clifton Davis),a batchlor barber whom inherited his late father's shop,his best friend Happy go lucky mail carrier Earl (Teddy Wilson),the neighborhood gossip Junior(Ted Lange), the two old checker playing patrons Jasper and Wildcat,Clifton's sister Tracy (Lynn Moody) along with her stuffy husband Leonard (Lisle Wilson0 and Curtis's loving mother Eloise(Theresa Merritt).
