Summary, etc.:
The complete first season of the delightfully offbeat TV comedy that originally began as a skit on the legendary Carol Burnett Show. As portrayed by Vicki Lawrence, the formidable Mama put the 'diss' in dysfunctional. Mama dispenses no-nonsense motherly advice and verbal kicks in the backside. There's her nervous sister Fran, slow-witted son Vint, and his bubble-headed girlfriend Naomi, plus frequent appearances by Betty White and Carol Burnett as daughters Ellen and Eunice.
