    Default VH reference on Mamas Family?

    Does anyone remember an episode of Mamas Family where her grand kid is listening to his headphones, and Vicky Lawerence, (mama), asks him, turn that thing off, the kid says, but grandma, its Van Halen, she says, let me hear that, she puts the headphones on, takes em off and says, thats Van Halen? They sounded alot better when they had David Lee Roth! LOL, ive looked for it on you tube but no luck so far, but i remember seeing that episode, funny stuff!!

    You indeed are a brave soul. Even if I had ever wasted the precious energy of life watching such an idiotic show once, I certainly would never have the balls to admit it, let alone actually remember the episode long enough to refer to the "action" taking place.

    God bless ya.

    LMAO! Yes, that's one of those shows that you can't believe lasted for more than one episode. Yikes!

    I watched that show on occasion but don't remember the episode. This show was pretty cheesy but Mama was a character that you remember.

    Yup, yet from "The Carol Burnett Show", not this tripe.

    I don't remember that episode, but there was an episode of Mr. Belevedre where the oldest son walks into a record store and asks for the new David Lee Roth record. I think you could make out the Eat 'em and Smile cover, but am not 100% on that one.

    11/11/04, 10/10/07
    03/09/12, 03/30/12

    David Lee Roth shows attended:
    07/24/91, 05/29/02 - opening night

    You did it. You reminded me of a show that is actually worse than "Yes, Dear". How anyone could sit through 5 minutes of Mama's Family is a fucking mystery to me.

    Five minutes? Try two.

    I guess I'll have to return the Mama's Family Complete First Season I had picked up Chef for his birthday.

    It was the 80s. Most pop culture in the 80s met about the same quality level as my armpit sweat and ass sweat collaborating on something creative.

    Since we are talking about 80s sitcoms, there was a reference in "Family Ties" to going to see Van Halen in Columbus. I don't remember the scenario, but the Tina Yothers character really wanted to go see Eddie.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!
