- Mama was one of the best-loved early family shows. Each week the show begins with one of the daughters thumbing through old photographs, then goes back to the time when… The Norwegian immigant family of recalls experiences of their life in America... At the end of each show, they sit around a pot of the sponsor's coffee discussing the lesson learned. Most show are live--only a few rare episodes made it to tape.
