MY MOTHER THE CAR is remembered as a notorious flop but it really wasn't. It ran a full season and all of the episodes are on Hulu and YouTube so you can check it out yourself. The premise was stupid but hardly the stupidest premise ever to come out of Hollywood. The cast was fine with Jerry Van Dyke endearing in the lead and the voice of veteran Hollywood star Ann Sothern as the reinCARnated mother. Avery Schreiber is fun as the crazy man trying to either buy or steal the car in many episodes as well. MY MOTHER THE CAR was one of the first series I remember being sad about when it was canceled. I was seven years old.
