We wouldn't be here without our moms...and TV wouldn't be the same without them, either. Providing good advice, as well as big laughs, the TV mom has been the anchor of the small-screen family for generations. In the 1950s, Barbara Billingsley played the quintessential stay-at-home mom on Leave it to Beaver, while Roseanne Barr showed America how to be a working mother of the 90s on her sitcom, Roseanne.
During more than 60 years of broadcasts, TV moms have served as a mirror of the times they were in, showing homes across America what it was like to enter the workforce, take charge of the blended family, and triumph over the struggles of single motherhood.
