When casting the part of Sue-Anne Nivens, producers were stumped for an actress to take the role. They wanted "someone like Betty White." Eventually, someone asked "Why not cast Betty White?" See more »
Exteriors of Mary's residence show that the apartment with the balcony (which would be Mary's, based on the interior shots of her apartment) is on the top floor, yet Rhoda's apartment is upstairs from Mary's. See more »
This series introduced the MTM Productions logo at the end - a tiny, meowing kitten. This is a parody of the MGM Studios roaring lion. The kitten logo (or variations thereof) would be used throughout the 1970s and 80s on a number of different TV series. See more »
This was my favorite show of the 1970s. I loved this series from the first time I saw it in 1970. This was a show that had it all. Humor, pathos, great scripts and great direction. The initial cast was one of the best in television history. Along with incomparable Mary we had Valerie Harper, Gavin MacLeod, Ted Knight, Ed Asner and Cloris Leachman. Each one of these performers put a unique spin on characters which were allowed to be three-dimensional and grow. After a few seasons, when several of the main characters were spun-off into their own series, new characters, such as Georgette and Sue-Ann were introduced. Geogia Engel as Georgette was sweet and adorable, and Betty White, as memorable man-trap Sue-Ann were marvelous in their parts. A true classic that bears multiple viewings.
