Also a 1985 tv show
I loved this show as a kid so was surprised to see that it was a 1980-1982 (since I wouldn't have been watching then) show not mentioning several members. So, if you have this problem, go to the 1985 version. It is so great watching reruns and seeing "Dharma and Greg"'s mother/mother-in-law playing Lois and "Blossom"'s Mrs. Lemure (Six's mother). as well as Ann Jillian and Marian Mercer--all great! Cheesy as most 80s shows but fun!
