Trivia

Early live episodes were sponsored by Maxwell House coffee. These episodes usually featured only two commercial breaks, one after the opening titles and one before the closing credits, the latter being a cast commercial. The product was noted as "already a favorite in Mama's time". See more »

Quotes

Katrin Hansen: This old album makes me remember so many things in the past. San Francisco and the house on Steiner Street where I was born. It brings back memories of my cousins, aunts, and uncles; all the boys and girls I grew up with. And I remember my family as we were then. My brother Nels, my little sister Dagmar, and of course, Papa. But most of all when I look back to those days so long ago, most of all, I remember Mama.

Greatest family show ever made
9 February 2000 | by (LOS ANGELES) – See all my reviews

They really don't make them like this anymore! The acting is of theater caliber, even small characters are played by superb actors. The writing as masterful, witty, charming, well-structured. There is no canned laughter or vulgarity of any sort. The great tenderness and wisdom of this show must be cherished and must never be forgotten.
