Clifton likes being a barber in Washington DC where he works in the business started by his father. He also enjoys being single but his widowed Mama Eloise has other ideas and wants him settled like his sister Tracy and her conservative husband Leonard.
Clifton Davis coped quite well as the straight man son in this all-black comedy show. He was let down by Theresa Merritt, who was always weak in the title role of Mama. Ted Lange provided some comic relief as Junior, but he did not really start to shine until he joined the crew of the Love Boat.
I don't believe this show was ever rerun, so these recollections are a quarter century old.
