ME MAMMY (TV series)
Broadcast June 14, 1968-June 11, 1971
Me Mammy is a British sitcom that aired on BBC 1, first as pilot within the seventh series of the BBC‘s Comedy Playhouse.

The pilot and first series were made in black-and-white. Despite playing his mother, Anna Manahan was only two years older than her on-screen son played by Milo O’Shea. Many of the episodes are missing and presumed wiped. Only the first episode of the first series and the third series survive.

Bunjy Kenefick is an Irish mother’s boy living in London. He is a top executive of a company and lives a bachelor lifestyle. However, his old-fashioned Catholic mother often puts a stop to his plans, many of them involving his girlfriend Miss Argyll. Other characters include Father Patrick, often mocked for his dubious morality, and Cousin Enda.
