Spend some time with one of TV’s original dysfunctional families when MAMA FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SERIES on DVD Oct. 14

Everyone’s favorite indelible and smart alecky small-town matriarch is back – and, she’s brought her whole crazy family with her!  After breaking out from “The Family” sketches on “The Carol Burnett Show,” Thelma “Mama” Harper’s home-spun humor earned its own well-loved sitcom which debuted on NBC and ran for six knee-slapping seasons. This October, Time Life invites all classic TV aficionados and sitcom lovers to spend some quality time with one of television’s original dysfunctional families in MAMA’S FAMILY: THE COMPLETE SERIES!  Packaged in a handsome slipcase, the 22-disc set includes all 130 episodes from their original broadcast masters.

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 spanning six seasons, viewers are treated to hilarious – and sometimes heart-warming — family comedy of the highest degree. Adding to the unforgettable mix are Mama’s journalist sister, Fran (Rue McClanahan, The Golden Girls), who lives with her; her youngest son, Vint (Ken Berry, F-Troop), who moves in with his two teenagers after he is evicted; and Naomi (Dorothy Lyman, All My Children), who marries Vint by Episode 4. Mama’s extended family includes her two daughters, highfalutin’ Ellen (Betty White) and high-strung Eunice (Carol Burnett), as well as Eunice’s husband, Ed (Harvey Korman).
