God what a depressing ending. Great. But depressing

Not the mama!

"Still, Richfield scoffs at the news reports that they blocked out the sun for tens of thousands of years - because the cold weather led dinosaurs to flood WESAYSO stores for heaters, blankets, and hot cocoa mix, giving the company its best third-quarter ever. When Earl points out that the world may still come to an end, Richfield keeping counting his money and calls it a "fourth-quarter problem.""

Sounds about right.

I never saw this show and I don't even remember it being on the air, but I've seen this thread about its AMAZING FINAL EPISODE at least six times.

That should tell you something.

They didn't actually kill the cast.

So much this... When this show was popular I was a young father with three then four daughters... They loved bopping me on the head and saying that catch phrase...... Good times....

My boy is a year and a half.  When he went through the phase of loving to empty the pots and pans cupboard, my wife would ask him if I was the mama.

well why not? they did it for Everybody Loves Raymond and I gotta say it wasn't a mistake

I had a friend and her baby live with me for a couple years. It's not quite the same thing since I never tried to be a parent but for a while the baby called me Mom (actual mom was Mama).

It was the Henson studio's way of saying 'F**K IT ALL!!'.

You seen any of them in anything else lately?

This was the last TV series that I watched faithfully and the only one I have recordings of.

/don't have a VHS player any more.
//Loved the volcano power episode and "40 million years for the environmental impact study."

For something made in the 90s, that show had a weird 50s sitcom vibe to it: working-class schmoe who can support a family on one income, housewife, overbearing boss, crabby mother-in-law.

Simultaneously one of the funniest things so far this thread and I feel the need to offer my condolences.

When the show was at its height of popularity our family went to a big Fourth of July fireworks display. The display was about a half-hour long with a huge finale of fireworks. After the last pop, in the best Baby Sinclair voice I could manage, I shouted "Again!"

Made about a thousand bystanders crack up.

I had that game too, holy shiat . that takes me back

Wow, I never saw that ending. I mean, I was aware of the show, but those were not really TV years for me...I think I was in college or just finished, so all I cared about were grades, sex and drugs. Unfortunately, not always in that order.

I'll have to revisit that. With Rick Scott destroying south Florida and Donald Trump destroying the EPA, maybe we could all use a refresher in the vagaries of environmental irresponsibility.

So, you're saying that one catastrophic event wiped out the Dinosaurs?

That was kind of the joke.

Yes, the crucifixion of Jesus. Everybody knows that.

Funny, you're the first person to notice that.

Thundercats portrayed genocide in the opening episode.

It would probably not surprise anyone to learn that the guy who did the voice of the baby also did Elmo on Sesame Street.

The Noid isn't on his IMDB filmography. Although I did discover he also did the voice of Master Splinter on the TMNT movies from the late-80s and early-90s.

I'm pretty sure he meant The Jetsons.

I can't speculate on his sexual preferences. It would be wrong to judge muppetsexuals.

No, he slammed his whole fist right up Elmo's ass.

Elmo was into it though. He kept giggling and remarking about how it tickles.

I loved this show as a kid, I had the doll and the board game too. I used to do "not the mama" to my Dad all the time.

I'm the oldest of four boys raised by a (basically) single mother, so you are most likely the Earth-2 version
of her.

If so:  would you be my daddy?

Which was basically the Honeymooners.
