We all remember the TV sitcom Mama’s Family, the American television sitcom starring Vicki Lawrence as Thelma Harper (Mama). The show is a spin-off of a recurring skit on the The Carol Burnett Show called “The Family”, which led to the made-for-TV movie, Eunice, and finally the television series. The show starred with Vicki Lawrence (Mama), Carol Burnett (Eunice), Harvey Korman (Ed) and Betty White (Ellen).
