Mama's Family Trivia Questions

1. In season 1, Vint pawns Mama's silver to help his friend Claude make bail. How much money does he need?

From Quiz
"Mama's Family" Thanks A Lot Mama!

Answer: $250.00

Mama has always thought of Claude as a loser so Vint couldn't tell her that he needed money for him to bail him out of jail. When Mama states that silver is the most valuable thing in the house, Vinton just takes it and pawns it for the money and then makes excuses and denials of where it went.

2. How much was the broach actually worth that Thelma's mother gave to her?

From Quiz "Mama's Family" Knowledge Test

Answer: $275.00

Naomi and Vint thought that it might have been worth a lot more, but it turned out to be a fake. Thelma ends up selling it to pay for Bubba's geology class trip. The trip actually only costs $200.00, but Thelma plans on buying her first pair of designer jeans with the rest of the money.

3. In the episode "After The Fall", what is the name of the book Naomi reads to Aunt Effie on the front porch after Mama goes inside the house?

From Quiz "Mama's Family" Trivia Quiz #3

Answer: Love's Burning Heart

After Mama goes inside, Naomi advises Effie she thinks her mind could use something a little more "stimulating" and pulls out a red book from her pocket titled "Love's Burning Heart". As Naomi reads from the provocative book about a prime minister and a woman named Daphne, Effie's eyes grow wider. The book Mama had Naomi reading to Effie was "Little Women".

4. What is the name of the cereal Vinton likes because of a little green prize inside?

From Quiz "Mama's Family" [2]

Answer: Dino Puffs

Vinton tells Mama that he wants Dino Puffs cereal for the high fiber, when in fact he wants it for the little green dinosaur inside to complete his collection. Bubba actually finds the little dinosaur when pouring a bowl for himself. There is a cereal brand slogan from "Mama's Family" that makes me laugh every time, it goes "Brings out the kid in you along with everything else".

5. What is the house or street number of the Harper home?

From Quiz "Mama's Family"

Answer: 1542

This number can be seen in many episodes in which the family is out on the front porch. In the episode "What A Dump", the original address on the deed indicates before the address change, the old address was 1 Old Decatur Road, at which time the family house was the only house on the block.

From Quiz That's Our Mama Test 2 of 2

Answer: Ed and Eunice

Bubba's dream was to be accepted at Florida State University so he could be close to his parents. When Florida State refused him, he thought of a junior college that would accept him, allowing him to move in with his parents. Thelma and Bubba were in their cap and gowns when she finally said they weren't coming.

7. "Mama Gets A Job" Where did Thelma get her first job?

From Quiz That's Our Mama Test 1 of 2

Answer: Raytown Travel Agency

They needed money so Thelma went and got a job only to have her family call her every few minutes. She ended losing the job, thanks to her family.

8. Vint: "I don't think I can sleep in a bed where a pig's been." Mama: "Oh, Vinton, what's the big deal?" What does Mama say next?

From Quiz More "Mama's Family" Quotes

Answer: "Sure as hell's never bothered you before!"

From the episode "Bed and Breakdown". Mama decides to take in boarders during the Tri-State Fair to earn money for a new stove. Unfortunately, Mama, Bubba and Naomi all rent Bubba's room at the same time. Mama rents it to the Thornberry's, a rather snobbish couple; Naomi to her boss' nephew (with his prize pig "Peggy Sue"); and Bubba to a group of cheerleaders. It's decided that all can stay. The cheerleaders get Bubba's room, the Thornberry's get Mama's room and the nephew and "Peggy Sue" get the basement. The family will sleep in the living room. At Iola's suggestion, they draw to see who sleeps on the sofa, the sleeping bag, the chaise lounge or the hammock. Poor Mama draws the hammock with hilarious results! "Peggy Sue" eats Mrs. Thornberry's prize orchid and the cheerleaders are scared to death when Mr. Thornberry enters their room by mistake, so they all check out in the middle of the night and Mama doesn't get her new stove after all!

9. Mama criticizes Naomi's outfit. Naomi: "Just what's wrong with my attire? I've always found this outfit suitable for religious occasions." Mama: "That's because ___."
