Premise

The show was a "tribute to mothers" featuring a mix of interviews, game show segments, and viewer letters. The series was sponsored by Phillips' Milk of Magnesia Toothpaste.

Episode status

One DuMont episode survives and is available for viewing on the Internet Archive, with "honor mother" Judith Doniger mentioning her upcoming New York City recital on October 12. A contemporary New York Times article dates her appearance on Okay, Mother to July 18, 1950.

Clips of this episode were shown during the 2008 special Pioneers Of Television: Game Shows, the first-season finale of PBS' miniseries.
