Genial tales of a family with three boys that had a less-than-genial transformation involving three titles. It was originally `Valerie,' but that had to go when star Valerie Harper left in 1987 amid a dispute with the producers. Next, it was `Valerie's Family,' before taking its final title in '88. Harper's character dies, and the brood is raised by her sister, Sandy. And while plotlines were often light, it did tackle, quite bluntly, AIDS, which is contracted by recurring character Rich.
