In honor of Mother’s Day, we acknowledge several iconic TV mother which has entered our living room for the past few decades.
While some of these matriarchs are on our list because of their extraordinary parenting, others are here because their ability to take care of family problems is so funny.
The best TV mothers in the past 30 years:
25. Lucille Bluth (“Arrested Development”)
Lucille Bluth may not be the friendliest and friendliest mother, but she believes trying to help her children succeed. His humorous and sarcastic jokes often give advice and his brutal honesty lets his children know exactly where they stand. He is immune to criticism and insults and will never dream of doing something like choosing a favorite child (but he likes to state “least favorite”).
24. Linda Belcher (“Bob’s Burgers”)
The animated Matriarch (literally) from the parent “Bob’s Burgers” made our list for a silly passion, without a ban for a lifetime. As her daughter, Tina, once described her own mother, she was a “badass alien, protective, queen of bees with acid for blood.” Need we say more?
23. Estelle Constanza (“Seinfeld”)
“Your arrogant sitcoms” are your stereotypes, always Estelle Costanza is willing to support her son George – even when he prefers he takes a step back – and he is never afraid to express his thoughts. Courageous, insolent and funny, she is not as loud and annoying as her husband, but when she starts talking, people listen.
22. Beverly Goldberg (“The Goldbergs”)
Known as “Smother,” Beverly Goldberg is the mother who interferes the most. He did not want to let his children make mistakes on their own, have the most ridiculous pet names for them and was almost embarrassing like a mother. That’s why we love him.
21. Jill Taylor (“Home Improvement”)
Look, I’m persuading a mother who knows when to laugh at herself, her children or her husband, and that’s at all Jill Taylor from “Home Improvement.” She also gets along well with the hub and is a star mom! What is not to be loved.
20. RuPaul (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”)
Call her mother! RuPaul is considered a pioneer and a pioneer in drag, which many queens call the “mother” drag. And as the host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” RuPaul has brought more than 100 queens into the spotlight, giving them a large platform while guiding them with strong love and greatness all around.
19. Marie Barone (“Everyone Loves Raymond”)
This is not the episode “Everybody Loves Raymond” until Marie Barone appears – usually with Frank’s husband behind him and aggressive-passive comments ready. Although he can be strong, he is also loving, and he is always there for his children and grandchildren (although sometimes he may be a little too present in their lives).
18. Debra Barone (“Everyone Loves Raymond”)
Usually the target of the most judgmental mother-in-law’s comments, Debra Barone juggles her three young children, her husband and parents-in-law in a way that is understood by many mothers. Often stressed and sometimes easily offended, he spends most of his time making sure nothing falls, but behind it all, he does everything for his family.
17. The Monterey Five (“Big Little Lies”)
The tiger mother group from “Big Little Lies” is known to try hard to protect their children and each other. Even if it includes murder.
16. Olivia Benson (“Law & Order: SVU”)
Just when you thought you could no longer respect the detective who was chasing the culprit, he went and adopted an orphan! Juggling her job as the head of the Special Victim and her role as a sweet mother to Noah can be challenging, but she always leads by heart, proving that a strong girl can also be a great mother.
15. Kris Jenner (“KUWTK”)
They say the devil is working hard, but the devil must know now that Kris Jenner is working harder. Since the first day of “Keeping Up the the Kardashians,” the mother Kardashian / Jenner has been giving master classes in the sense of crowds, clearing the way for her family to move up from reality TV to global superstars. Kris Jenner: Businessman, media mastermind, legend.
14. Meredith Gray (“Grey’s Anatomy”)
The star “Grey’s Anatomy,” Meredith Gray has truly found a way to have it all. In addition to a growing surgical career, he expertly raised three young children as single parents and the previous storyline revolved around infertility and adoption, showing viewers a different path to parenthood. With her good behavior and lots of good advice, she is one of the best TV moms around.
13. Daenerys Targaryen (“Game of Thrones”)
How can we discuss the greatest TV mothers without mentioning the Mother of the Dragon herself? She was far from perfect when she became a mother in “Game of Thrones,” but if the act of hatching and raising a creature that breathes fire does not get the points of Daenerys Targaryen’s mother, we don’t know what will happen.
12. Jane Villanueva (“Jane the Virgin”)
Jane Villanueva from “Jane the Virgin” has overcome a LOT! There are unintentional artificial inseminations, murder plots and (of course) the will-or-not-them storyline that somehow lasts for several seasons. She also has extraordinary tastes in evening dresses and is a successful and motivated career woman while caring for her extraordinary son … who mysteriously changed the actors in Season 4.
11. Beth Pearson (“This Is Us”)
While the Pearson family’s ups and downs on “This Is Us” can cause some emotional whine, viewers can count on Beth Pearson, Randall’s wife, as a pillar of strength. As a mother and partner, she is gentle, empathetic, and has a big heart when it is most important. When he and Randall wrote their marriage vows together in the third season? Be silent in our hearts.
10. Marge Simpson (“The Simpsons”)
“June Cleaver” of the modern age, “the Simpson family leader mother was able to conjure up the brave personalities of her three children while still being able to keep Homer awake. She also earned the main style points for the blue witch who has managed to stay on top of the trend after years.
9. Kristina Braverman (“Parenthood”)
Wise, understanding and gentle, Kristina Braverman is a constant source of support for her children, but she is not afraid to give them encouragement when they need it. Whatever happens in her personal life, she is always there for her children, family and friends, making her one of the most resilient and reliable mothers on television.
8. Rainbow Johnson (“black-ish”)
He’s smart. He is cool. He is funny. He is stylish. Oh, she is also a very good mother. What more can you ask for? Basically we want to be Rainbow Johnson when we want to grow up.
7. Rebecca Pearson (“This Is Us”)
Has the journey of a TV mother been simultaneously enticing and heartbreaking to watch like Rebecca Pearson on “This Is Us”?
It is interesting to see Mandy Moore playing a young Pearson, full of heart and driven by his dream, because he also plays an older Pearson, still full of heart but withered by tragedy. * Take the network. *
6. Clair Huxtable (“The Cosby Show”)
Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show” is really my goal. She’s a full-time lawyer, cool mom, and has amazing and concise advice for children. I can go on about the extraordinary character traits but on the contrary, I will also mention that he always looks stylish – however, I am currently wearing sweatpants for 12 days in a row.
5. Moira Rose (“Schitt’s Creek”)
Is Moira Rose the most attentive mother? Not. Does he value his favorite wig collection more than his own children? Maybe. Am I honored to be counted among the bébé? Correct.
4. Claire Dunphy (“Modern Family”)
Claire Dunphy may be a bit strong and competitive, but there is never any doubt about her love for her family. Even though she is not the “nicest” mother, she is always there to help and arrange juggling parenting while caring for her “modern family”.
3. Sophia Petrillo (“Golden Girl”)
Get a piece of cheesecake! Sophia Petrillo’s approach to life is something serious that all of us must emulate.
Zingers and the best one-liner at “Golden Girls” are his, proving that no matter how old you are, you can still have a lot of courage in your steps.
2. Tami Taylor (“Friday Night Lights”)
Football is everything for everyone on “Friday Night Lights,” but Tami Taylor is there to remind residents of Dillon, Texas, that life is pretty crazy !!! – not everything about football.
As the wife of a coach and mother of a high school student, Taylor, played by Connie Britton, is a voice of eternal reason and always conveys the truth with a certain grace.
1. Lorelai Gilmore (“Gilmore Girls”)
The funny joke between Lorelai and Rory Gilmore is something we all hope to have with our own mother. And while these girls are so close, Lorelai knows when to draw a line and more than just a “cool mother” for her daughter, get on the plate with strong love or a cup of Luke’s hot coffee when she needs it the most.
