DEBUT 1996

Mama Fiama is Johnny Fiama's mother on Muppets Tonight. Johnny calls her "Ma."

Mama Fiama makes a great pasta sauce -- so good that Martin Short can't help but eat so much in Muppets Tonight episode 110 that he gets as big as a house. In 2005, she FedExed some of her sauce to Jerry Lewis for his telethon. On his way to deliver the sauce to Jerry, Sal spilled the entire contents, leading he and Johnny to sing a rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody".

She also appears in episode 210 and episode 212. Mama Fiama appears to be religious, as her home is adorned with a crucifix and a copy of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper.

A framed portrait of Mama Fiama was included with the Johnny Fiama Action Figure.

In 2017, she was a minor character in Muppets Meet the Classics: The Phantom of the Opera.
