    Many of Carol Burnett volumes that Columbia House released contain "Family" sketches. These are being sold via info-mercials now as well.

    I really wanted to like this show because I liked the sketches on The Carol Burnete show but this sitcom was right up there with Dharma and Greg and Sudenly Susan as most unfunny sitcom that overstayed it's welcome.

    I'd buy Mama's Family in an instant. It will probably never be on DVD, though.

    You'd be surprised, Travis. Depends on who owns the distribution rights. If it's Columbia, you can almost bet on seeing it sometime in the future.

    This is one that I've sat down and watched whole episodes of in syndication on TBS several years ago -- but I doubt that I would ever spend money to do so. Not with the wealth of other TV shows coming to the DVD market.

    According to TVShowsonDVD.com, the rights are owned by Warner.

    I'd buy these in a second.

    I would buy these for my mom. She loves this show! It's because Thelma Harper is so much like her mother-in-law that she can't stand.......and oddly enough her name is Thelma too and she says "Oh my Lord!" just like Mama.

    I will admit I saw Vicki Lawrence in her Las Vegas stage show (part of a national tour) recently. She does stand up and sings her song for the first half and then returns as Mama for the second half.

    I actually liked it. :b
