Trivia

The producers had researched automobile history to avoid duplicating a real car. However, there was a real-life, unrelated Porter automobile. The small Bridgeport, Connecticut-based company produced 36 cars between 1919 and 1922. It was named for automotive engineer and designer Finley Robinson Porter, creator of the T-head Mercer automobile. See more »

One of the writers
22 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of the writers for this series. I wrote one episode ("The Blabbermouth" was the title.) It is quite true that at the time the series was on the air, it was considered one of the worse sitcoms in the history of TV. However, over the years, MY MOTHER, THE CAR has achieved something of a cult status. It is broadcast every Mother's Day on TV Land.

I have always been proud of my contribution to this much-maligned and underrated series.
