Thelma Mae Crowley Harper (Vicki Lawrence) first appeared on our TV sets in 1974. She would be part of the sketch "The Family" on "The Carol Burnett Show". This smart-alecky character would become a standard and in 1983 would spin off into 'Mama's Family'. For the next six years she and her kin would make us laugh each week with Vint and Naomi (Ken Berry and Dorothy Lyman) and Bubba (Allan Kayser) as cast mates.
The fourth season would see an ever continuing look at the usual family issues that they would have to deal with. Like Bubba having two dates for the prom, having to choose only one. You even get to see Mama and the family in their early years. Now, what is an even better episode is when Mama gets to go on Jeopardy and meet Alex Trebek.
StarVista is bringing 'Mama's Family: The Complete Fourth Season' to DVD on June 24,2014. Now this is not just a couple of episodes but the complete fourth season. You also get a feature on the cast reunion of 'Mama's Family' along with a look at the family tree. The quality of the DVD is fantastic. The sound and visual is of the highest quality.
This DVD set is one that you will want for your library. It is part of television history at it's best. For some the show was one of the greatest of the 80's decade and will be forever missed. Pick it up and laugh once again to Mama and the gang.
