This series took place in an apartment building, numbered 227. The cast would frequently be found sitting outside on a large set of stone stairs, in some discussion that would unfold into the weekly plot line.

I remember when Mamas Family first aired on NBC, although I thought it was in 1981. This show is very funny and holds up very well over time. I set my vcr to record the show so I can watch them at leisure. I like the fact that Mamas Family is a show you can still watch with every member of your family and not have to worry about vulgarity, like in so many shows on today. Mamas Family was a sweet, simple and fun show. I wish there were more shows like it made today.
