TV moms will always hold a special place in our hearts. This Mother’s Day, not only are we celebrating our own mothers, but we’re reserving some special time to give praise to the top TV moms that spent a good chunk of time in our living rooms over the years.
What’s not to love about Jane? Aside from having to put up with her husband’s antics, Jane was also faced with having to raise a sassy teenage girl and a genius son. Thank goodness she had Rosie on her side! Those two were the ultimate gal pals. On another note, Jane’s obsession with purple is perfectly fine with us.
No list of top TV moms would be complete without this blonde beauty. It’s obviously not easy to take on stepchildren, but three rowdy boys?? Carol Brady is basically a saint. Plus, we seem to remember everyone wanting to emulate her hairstyle, making Mrs. Brady one of the first TV style-maven mothers. Carol also gave us the most important house rule of all time: “Never play ball in the house.”
When Rebecca Donaldson married Uncle Jessie Katsopolis on Full House, it was a monumental introduction of a mother figure to a male-dominated home. Rebecca did it all. She hosted a TV show with Danny Tanner, raised boisterous twin boys, and was the female voice-of-reason for her nieces. She was definitely a mom worth celebrating!
Harriet Winslow was a strong and positive role model for her children. She was a full time mom, a wonderful wife to Carl, and could also withstand their annoying neighbor Steve Urkel. She played a huge role in raising both her daughters and son and made sure they would make the best life decisions.
Vivian was an amazing mother; she raised two sons, two daughters, and even took in her nephew from Philly. She could do everything, she could sing, she could dance, she could teach, and she also gave some of the best guidance to her kids and nephew. Vivian was so great that we didn’t even notice when the actress playing her was re-cast.
What other TV moms have we left off that you’d like to celebrate this weekend? Let us know in the comments below.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there!
