New from Time Life: Mama’s Family – The Complete Series. The wacky comedy that ran from January 22, 1983 to March 12, 1990 originally began as a skit on the legendary Carol Burnett Show. Loosely based on Carol’s childhood, it was such a hit that it generated its own spin-off series revolving around the misadventures of Thelma Harper, sharp-tongued blue-haired matriarch of the extended Harper family, and her friends and neighbors.
