In the spirit of the pending Mother's Day holiday, I found this online poll.


Who's your favorite TV mom?

Carol Brady
Marge Simpson
Marion Cunningham
Claire Huxtable
Peg Bundy
Lucy Ricardo
Harriet Nelson
June Cleaver
Wilma Flintstone
Morticia Addams
Edith Bunker
Roseanne Conner
Mama (Thelma Harper)
Shirley Partridge
Other (name)

I'd have to pick Marion Cunningham/Happy Days. She was just such a sweet mom but could also be a be-yotch...especially when she'd chew out The Fonz and tell him to "sit on it."

Edith Bunker. She's a sweetie who puts up with a lot, is a bit naive, but can stand up for herself when she needs to.

How could you not love someone with that peircing of a voice?! Ahhh-chie!

I'd have to go with Mama.

She was no wilting flower and truly kind-hearted while also not taking any unnecessary crap.

Thelma "Mama" Harper - one of my all-time favorites
Peg Bundy - "the laziest bitch in Chicago"
Louise "Weezie" Jefferson - just seemed cool and lovable to me

Favorite TV mom at this time would be Angie Lopez (Constance Marie), from "The George Lopez Show." Damn, that is one hot momma!

I vote for Kitty from That 70s Show. She is by far my favourite 'mom' character on t.v. from any era.

My mom was on TV once, so, she has to be the best!!

:-D

yeah, I used to watch the televised Comission and Council meetings to see when my Mom's meetings were out and time when my boyfriend had to leave the house. o:)



Kitty on the 70s show is the best mom ever, especially the brownie episode!

How about Amy Brenneman as Amy Gray in Judging Amy.

Has anyone ever noticed that Lucy hardly ever paid attention to Little Ricky? It was always, "Fred, will you watch the baby?", while Lucy and Ethel took off for another madcap adventure.

How come Laura Petrie isn't on the list?

I don't know about favorite t.v. mom, but June Cleaver is most like my mom. I don't think I ever saw her leave the house in pants until maybe 10 years ago. And I was 15 before I was allowed to have jeans. But I think Beaver and Wally had them younger than that.

When I saw the topic of this thread, I immediately thought of the mother from Home Improvement. I couldn't think of her name until I came across Dan's post. Thanks Dan. Yep, she'd be my favourite television mother.

And who would call Roseanne his/her favourite tv mom? Just a thought. No harm intended, though.

Another vote for Kitty. She just seems like she'd be a gin swilling sweetheart of a Mom to have in real life.

My favorites are:

Peggy Hill, "King of the Hill", She just has no clue...
Claire Huxtable, She's beautiful, intelligent, likes to get it on, has a good job and will kick your a$$ if need to, just ask Vanessa.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the beautiful, talented, funny Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond:
