Mama’s Family

Several houses were used for the filming of the 1980s sitcom “Mama’s Family,” starring Vicki Lawrence.  In the first two seasons, the house seen in the establishing shots was actually located in Kansas City, Missouri (18 W 59th St, Kansas City, MO 64113).  However, for exterior shots where the cast was required to be on location, a second home was utilized in Pasadena, California, much closer to where the show taped.

However, the home most commonly associated with the series, used in seasons 3 through 6, as well as syndicated episodes, is this third house, located not far from the second, in South Pasadena, California.  The home is actually located just two doors down from the shrubs Michael Meyers famously stood at in the original “Halloween.”  The “Mama’s Family” house can even be seen in a couple shots in the film, if you look closely at the background.
