Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the name of the cereal Vinton likes because of a little green prize inside?

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".
2. Iola Boylan is the only Boylan ever shown throughout the series that lives on Mama's street.

Answer: False

In the episode "Mama Learns to Drive", when Mama is driving to the mall to purchase her hat, she yells out the window "Hey Ms. Boylan, you wanna see me burn rubber?" The woman is an older woman with white hair shown putting the lid on her trash cans.
3. What is the name of the group Mama enlists to help her boycott Food Circus?

Answer: Daughters Of Raytown

In the episode "Porn Again", Mama enlists the D.O.R. (Daughters of Raytown) to help her boycott Food Circus for selling pornography, but only one member shows up, citing that the other members are at a garden club. This is the only episode that this group is mentioned.
4. Which ingredients listed are not ingredients for Naomi's international stew?

Answer: Fritos

Naomi cooks her international stew in Mama's simmer cooker, and describes each international ingredient as she adds them to the stew saying "French cut green beans, oohh lala", "Mexicorn...ole", "Sauerkraut...YAABBOOO", "and from Italy...Spaghetti O's". Mama says she hopes the ingredients do not eat through the lining of her simmer cooker.
5. In the episode "Fangs a lot Mama", what does Mama replace Vinton's crib notes with for his induction ceremony?

Answer: Cora Mae's crab cakes recipe

After learning that he will be hissed out of the ceremony by failing, Mama decides she made a mistake and goes to try and get the notes back before he fails. Mama ends up saving the day by grabbing the notes at the last minute, but ends up getting hissed out herself due to Billy Bob (Brent Spiner) seeing the notes in her hand, and calling attention to her for having them.

As the members hiss her out, they sing the song "He's not fit to be a snake, chop him up with hoe and rake...known to all as a disgrace, may the mongoose chew your face". That song still makes me laugh when I hear it.
6. In the episode "Mama's Birthday", what is the name of the man who ends up getting the promotion instead of Carl?

Answer: Burt Wimbley

In a flashback sequence when Mama was a young mother, Burt tells her that Carl said he had too much to handle at home being a father and a husband, and that Burt Wimbley is the man for the job instead. Mama ends up having to send back the deep freezer she purchased, thinking he got the job, and finally forgives Carl by the end of the episode after getting a deep freezer for her birthday from Ellen, Buzz, Sonja, Vinton and Naomi. "Some pitched in more than others" Ellen was all too fast to point out, and says she can bring it over to her house if Mama doesn't have room for it.
7. In the episode "Naomi's Identity Crisis", who is responsible for turning Bubba's school project into an aquarium?

Answer: None of these choices

Naomi is the responsible party. After Naomi returns home from the hospital, Mama tells her that she used to be a cleaning whiz, and that the one chore she can't get enough of is scrubbing toilets. Besides Mama, the rest of the family (and especially Iola) are not pleased with Naomi's change in personality.
8. What credit card does Mama use to make her purchases when she becomes addicted to "KRAY TELESHOPPER" in the episode "Zirconias Are a Girl's Best Friend"?

Answer: MasterCard

After Mama advises the family how easy it is to pay because they take your credit card information right over the phone, Vinton says "But you said your credit card was only for emergencies", to which Mama replies "If Angela Lansbury can Master the possibilities, than so can I" referring to the MasterCard tag line in all of their commercials used even years after "Mama's Family" went off the air.

After Mama receives her credit card bill, the balance is so high that the family ends up returning all of her "pretties" for a full refund.
9. What prime time soap opera is mentioned in several "Mama's Family" episodes through out the series either by name or by character affiliation?

Answer: Knots Landing

Mama herself mentions "Knots Landing" at least three times throughout the series and mentions Donna Mills twice, referring to the character Abby that Donna played on "Knots Landing". "Falcon's Crest" is also mentioned once in the episode "Mama's Cousin" by character affiliation (Jane Wyman), but "Knots Landing" holds the title for most mentioned soap opera through out the entire series of "Mama's Family".
10. In the episode "Mama and Dr. Brothers", why does Dr. Joyce Brothers come to Raytown?

Answer: Her plane broke down

Naomi is the first caller to speak to Dr. Brothers on "Good Morning Raytown", and she says her name is Salomi and her husband's name is "Vint, I mean Clint". She also advises that he has been unable to "rise to the occasion" and that she is a checker at Food Circus and he works at Kwik Keys. Mama's phone rings off the hook with sympathy calls, crank calls, and even got a call from a woman who lives down the street that she thought "died years ago".
11. In the episode "Mama and Dr. Brothers", what is the name of the person mentioned by Eddie Edwards on "Good Morning Raytown" that owes the most money for overdue books in Raytown?

Answer: Mary Jane

After announcing her name, he then says "Shame on you Mary Jane". Thelma and Iola originally tune into the program to watch Eddie Edwards read the list of all the citizens with overdue books, not knowing that Dr. Joyce Brothers was going to appear on the show, or that Naomi was going to call in.
12. What town did Eunice run away to that is across the river from Raytown?

Answer: Bump

In the episode "Steal One, Pearl Two", Bubba only has enough bus fare to get to Bump. When Mama finds him at the Rayhound station, she tells Bubba about the time Eunice ran way to Bump, though when Eunice went it was before the stop sign had been put in and there was only a bump to see.
13. In the episode "After the Fall", where does Vinton find and purchase his discontinued jigsaw puzzle?

Answer: Kippur's Drug

"The Monitor and the Merrimack" is the name of the jigsaw puzzle Vinton has been looking for with no success, until he finds it marked 50% off at Kippur's Drug. While Naomi, Bubba, Iola, and Vinton all are sitting down working the puzzle, Naomi says she prefers "cutesier puzzles with puppies and pandas".
14. In the episode "A Friend Indeed", what is the name of Iola's new best friend?

Answer: Arlene

Iola ends up spending all of her time with Arlene and not spending any time with Thelma. She even decided not to go with Thelma to Las Vegas night, so she can go on a gourmet cooking cruise with Arlene instead. After Iola leaves the room, Arlene asks Thelma how to get rid of Iola.
15. In the episode "Mama's Girls", what is the name of the tap dance teacher at the Senior Citizens Center?

Answer: Bambi

Bambi is a young blonde who acts like a bimbo. After guiding the ladies of the class through three flaps with her "footsie", she thanks them for "all the hard work" and announces "class dismissed".
