In honor of the late, great Ken Berry, MeTV is proud to present select episodes of Mama's Family all week. These five stories shine a spotlight on his character Vinton Harper — and Berry's diverse talents. Tune in each weeknight, Monday through Friday, at Mama's Family's regular time, 6PM | 5C, to catch these delightful slices of Berry's career.
We start at the very beginning, as Vint comes home to live with his Mama (Vicki Lawrence). We then move on as he commits to the love of his life, Naomi (Dorothy Lyman). Later, we see Berry's stage skill on display in "Amateur Night," when Vint enters a talent showcase at the Bigger Jigger. Keep coming back, as Vint deals with his possible adoption and brings his Binky Bunny lunchbox to work.
Here is what you will see in our tribute to Ken Berry.
"Vint and the Kids Move In"

"For Better or For Worse"
Tuesday at 6PM | 5C
When Naomi spends the night in the basement with Vint, Mama tries to break up the relationship. But the two decide to get married instead — and plan to have the ceremony in the Harper home.

After Vint wins a talent contest, he changes his name to "Vinnie Vegas" and sets his sights on becoming an entertainer.
Thursday at 6PM | 5C
An anonymous letter convinces Vint that he's adopted.

Vint is so embarrassed when Mama brings his childhood lunchbox to work that he accidentally cuts his finger and takes to his bed, refusing to go back to work.
