    Since tomorrow is Mother's Day and we pay our appreciation to them I thought it might be appropiate to recognize some of the T.V. mothers we grew up with.

    I would like to nominate June Cleaver from Leave it to Beaver. She was a stay at home mom despite the fact that she was college educated. She kept an unbelievevably clean house despite having two boys to raise. She also dressed to the hilt and never was seen wearing casual clothes and she always had the boys back especially The Beaver as she told her husband Ward on more than one occassion " Ward don't you think you were a little hard on the " Beaver " last night? Or " Ward could you take it a little easy on the "Beaver " tonight. OFC

    The mother on the Goldbergs and the mother on That 70s Show were actually pretty similar to my mother. I loved it when the mother on the '70s show drank too much. Very funny.

    And the best television moms of all...our own mothers that finally got to sit down MAYBE (in front of a tv) for a couple of minutes after feeding us, changing our diapers, reading to us, and a million other things.
    Happy Mothers Day to all of them!

    Shirley Partridge. She could drive a school bus, looked great in hot pants, and did her best to steer Danny in the right direction

    Jane Wyatt on "Father Knows Best" was hot. She sounded British and proper even though she was American. She was in her late 40s, but seemed a lot younger

    Holy shit, how has this gone on so long and nobody has mentioned Claire f’ing Huxtable? I know Mr turned out to be a perv, but that woman was fierce.

    The mom on Little House on the Prairie was nice. And the one on the Waltons. And of course Mrs. Cunningham.

    William Dearest, uncle Charlie, was not a mother. The bowl haircut should be a tipoff

    Erin Gray on "Silver Spoons" was so incredibly hot that I'm submitting her name even though she was just the mother figure to Ricky Schroeder

    I loved the Mary Tyler Moore show, although she was not a mother on that.
