Mother’s day is this Sunday! In my opinion a loving yet fierce mother is the key to the family foundation, (much like my momma!). Unfortunately not everyone gets to experience this, but luckily there were plenty of women on TV who played doting mothers. Many people from all generations can recall a few TV mothers that had an impact on their life.
Below are a few of my favorites, see if you recognize any and comment on which had the most impact on you!
Claire Huxtable (The Cosby Show) – Claire always knew how to teach her kids lessons with style and grace.
Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch) – Mrs. Brady was always very wise. Not only was she a great mother to her daughters, but she was also a fantastic step-mother to her three new sons!
Vivian “Aunt Viv” Banks (The Fresh Prince of Bel Air) – Now I know certain people prefer one Aunt Viv over the other, but I liked both! Both were very strong matriarch’s to the Banks family.
Wilma Flintstone & Betty Rubble (The Flintstones) – Wilma and Betty had a hard enough time dealing with their husbands antics, but imagine trying to raise two babies like Pebbles and Bam-Bam on top of that…. kudos!
Lily Munster (The Musnters) – Without Lily the Munsters would not have survived! Lily was able to maintain a house full of wacky family members and help them all cope with the fact that they didn’t quite look like everyone else in the neighborhood.
Samantha Stephens (Bewitched) – Samantha might hide a few things from Darren, but she is always fiercely protective of her family, especially little Tabitha!
Rochelle (Everybody Hates Chris) – Everyone in the neighborhood knows they better not mess with Rochelle or her family!
Jane Jetson (The Jetsons) – Jane was the ultimate renaissance woman! She was always hip to the newest fashions, was part of the Galaxy Women Historical Society, and was even awarded Miss Solar System. All while keeping balance and order in the Jetson household!
Morticia Addams (The Addams Family) – Morticia was always very kind, patient, and understanding with her kooky and spooky family.
Florida Evans (Good Times) – Florida is the main thing that kept the Evans family together! Even when James died (damn, damn, damn…!) she made sure her closely knit family stayed as such.
Catelyn Stark (Game of Thrones) – Catelyn is fiercely loyal and protective to her family and her kingdom. Luckily before her untimely passing, she was able teach her children everything she knew.
Linda Belcher (Bob’s Burgers) – Linda is the life of the party and the fiercest mom there is! She always looks on the bright side and always supports her family no matter how crazy the idea is!
