This "All In The Family" spin-off centers around Edith's cousin, Maude Findlay. She's a liberal, independent woman living in Tuckahoe, NY with her fourth husband Walter, owner of Findlay's Friendly Appliances; Carol Trainor, Maude's divorced daughter from her 2nd marriage; and Philip, Carol's son. Other characters included: Dr. Arthur Harmon, Walter's conservative best friend from their Army days. He and Maude were always at odds when it came to politics and just about everything. Vivian Cavender-Harmon, Maude's naive best friend from their college days who married Harmon in season three. During the show's run, Maude had gone through three maids during the series run: Florida Evans, Nell Naugutuck and Victoria Butterfield. Mrs. Naugutuck and Florida, however, were the most memorable. Although it was a situation comedy, it dealt with serious and often controversial issues, much like Norman Lear's other shows "All In The Family" "One Day At a Time" and "Good Times." Written by
According to Rue McClanahan's autobiography "My First Five Husbands and the Ones That Got Away" as well as various other people's interviews Bill Macy dropped his trousers at the 1974 Emmy Awards and shouted a raunchy joke out to the audience. Reportedly this was a prank he used to pull from time to time. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences responded by telling Norman Lear and the producers of Maude that they would no longer be eligible for any Emmy awards for the duration of the run of the show. Maude did not get any Emmy awards after that, except Bea Arthur in 1977 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a comedy series. See more »
At the end of the series, the Governor of New York State appoints Maude to the House of Representatives, filling a vacancy caused by the death of her local Congresswoman. In fact, vacancies in the House of Representatives caused by the death, resignation, or expulsion of a member can be filled only by a special or general election. The rules for filling vacancies in the U.S. Senate, however, vary from state to state. See more »
Feminist Propaganda! Who could live with this woman?
I don't remember Maude much as a child, but seeing reruns of this show reminds me of how much this propaganda has ruined America. I can see how Maude has changed our attitudes about women. Maude was pushy, controlling, unattractive, arrogant and anti-man. In real life, older women who are like that are always single. Nobody likes to be around this type of woman in real life, either now or in the past, and thanks to this kind of short-sighted and sexist propaganda, Americans are more divided than ever. Maude was single mindedly trying to push a liberal feminist viewpoint, which only divides us as a nation instead of bringing us together. I am by no means a conservative, but any ideology too radical should not be shoved down antibody's throat!
