Syndicated versions were edited to 22 minutes, and are also presented on both the season 1 and season 2 DVD releases. Only a handful of episodes on the DVD releases are presented in their original unedited form. See more »
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.
