Mama's Family is an American sitcom television series starring Vicki Lawrence as Thelma Harper (Mama). The series is a spin-off of a recurring series of comedy sketches called "The Family" featured on The Carol Burnett Show (1974–78) and Carol Burnett & Company (1979). The sketches led to the television film Eunice, and finally the television series.The show's theme song is "Bless My Happy Home" by Peter Matz (music) and Vicki Lawrence (lyrics). The show's producers chose to use an instrumental version. Lawrence performs the theme song with lyrics in her live show, Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two Woman Show. The lyrics were also featured in an advertisement for the show on MeTV.Mama's Family originally aired on NBC, debuting on January 22, 1983. After several timeslot changes and a subsequent drop in ratings, the network canceled the series after two seasons; the final episode from this two-season NBC era of the series aired on April 7, 1984. NBC broadcast reruns until September 1985.Two years after its cancellation, original series producer Joe Hamilton Productions (JHP) revived Mama's Family for new episodes in first-run syndication on local stations across the United States. The modified revival, produced by JHP and distributed by Lorimar-Telepictures, premiered on September 27, 1986. The modified series revival garnered substantially higher ratings than its original version, eventually becoming the highest-rated sitcom in first-run syndication. The revived run lasted four seasons and did not end by cancellation, but rather voluntarily on February 24, 1990.
