Everyone loves their Grandmas. Honestly, what's not to love? They make you cookies, give you a check on your birthday and let you have the fun your parents don't put up with. But I know that not everyone has one or both of their Grandmas. And for those of us who are in that boat, there's always "The Golden Girls."

"The Golden Girls" was a television sitcom that ran from 1985 to 1992 and starred Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty as four older, single women sharing a home together in Miami, Florida. Bea Arthur portrayed Dorothy Zbornak, a divorcee who's often described as being smart, sarcastic and tough. Betty White (the only living member of the ensemble cast) played Rose Nylund, a widow who's innocent, naive and good-natured. Rue McClanahan plays Blanche Devereaux, a widow whose character was inspired by Blanche DuBois of "A Streetcar Named Desire" and Scarlett O'Hara of "Gone with the Wind." Estelle Getty plays Sophia Petrillo, Dorothy's mother and a strongly Sicilian woman who's loud, caring and eccentric.

During its seven season run, "The Golden Girls" was extremely successful, earning the Golden Globe Award for Best Television series—Musical or Comedy on three separate occasions. Each of the four stars also earned an Emmy for their performance, becoming one of three sitcoms in television history to obtain this achievement.
