List Rules List includes the most loveable moms ever on TV--current or past

The favorite TV moms of all time, including mothers from all walks of life. Many great TV moms were characters on popular sitcoms, including 'The Brady Bunch,' 'Happy Days' and 'The Cosby Show.' Some were actually really good mothers, while others were just cool, funny and amusing. Which TV moms are the most memorable to you? Vote them up, and vote down any television moms you don't think are worthy of a place on this great list. Also, feel free to add your personal favorite TV mothers as well.

Vote: Favorite TV Dads of All Time

Some of the most memorable TV moms somehow always managed to get everything done with ease. How, exactly, did Carol Brady keep up with that whole bunch? To be fair, she had a lot of help from Alice, but still...it's not easy. And yes, not all of the favorite TV mothers on this list are as capable as say, Shirley Partridge ('The Partridge Family'), or as kind and nurturing as Caroline Ingalls ('Little House on the Prairie'). No, there are hot messes here too, including Peggy Bundy ('Married...With Children'). She might not be perfect, but she definitely loves her (totally messed up) kiddos. Claire Dunphy ('Modern Family'), for all her crazy, is actually a pretty awesome, fun mom to have.

If you could choose any one of these TV moms as your own, who would it be? Would you rather have a wacky, hilarious mom like Lucy Ricardo ('I Love Lucy') or a more grounded, serious mom like Abby Bradford ('Eight is Enough').
