10 Best Sitcom Moms Of The 90s

Mother's Day is a time to honor and celebrate the women who have had a positive impact on our lives.  And while there have been many great sitcom moms over the years, I believe that the 90s was a particularly rich era for this genre. It's important to recognize that not everyone has a positive relationship with their mother, and that is okay. Let's acknowledge the love and sacrifice that  women we know have poured into their roles as caregivers. Whether it's a biological mother, adoptive mother, grandmother, aunt, sister or friend, it's a great time to show our gratitude for the ways in which they have nurtured and supported us. With that being said, let's take a moment to highlight the best sitcom moms of the 90s - we laughed with them, cried with them and at times wished they could be our own moms. 
1. Clair Huxtable from "The Cosby Show":
Clair shattered stereotypes and paved the way for women in male-dominated professions. She was a great role model for young women, showing them that it is possible to have a successful career and a happy family life. She was smart, funny, always in control, and her children knew they could always count on her for guidance and support.
2. Elyse Keaton from "Family Ties":
Elyse was a feminist before it was cool, challenging her husband and children to think critically and question authority. She was a free spirit who loved her family deeply, and she was a great role model for young women trying to find their own voice.

Kitty had a great sense of humor and was never afraid to speak her mind, she also had a tender and nurturing side that made her a beloved figure in the show's ensemble.

Becky was a caring and responsible caregiver/friend to the Tanner girls, as well as a loving wife and mother to her own family. She was intelligent, kind-hearted, career driven and always willing to lend a helping hand. 

5. Harriette Winslow from "Family Matters":
Harriette was a strong, no-nonsense mom who kept her family in line and always put them first. She was a great role model for young women, showing them that it is possible to be a leader and a nurturer at the same time.  Harriette was tough but fair, and she had a heart of gold. 
6. Peggy Bundy from "Married... with Children":
Peggy was a housewife with a wild side. She was always trying to inject some excitement into her boring suburban life. She was a great source of comic relief, and her love for her family was always evident, even when they drove her crazy.

Jill was a smart, resourceful mom who encouraged her husband and children to pursue their dreams. She was a great role model, showing that intelligence and compassion can go hand in hand. She always had a solution to whatever problem her family was facing.



8. Hilda and Zelda Spellman from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch":
Hilda and Zelda were the perfect combination of fun and practicality. They were the aunts every teen girl wished she had, providing a mix of magic and real-world advice to help Sabrina navigate the challenges of growing up. They also had a great sense of humor and weren't afraid to get a little silly, making them fan favorites on the show. 

    9. Vivian Banks from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air":

Joyce was a strong and independent woman who always put her family first, even when that meant going to great lengths to help them solve their bizarre problems. Her unflappable nature and unwavering support made her an inspiration to viewers of all ages.
