They don't even seem remotely alike.

I occasionally (rarely) watch Maude. It's as bad now as it was back then. Really not a good show at all. It's a spinoff of Golden Girls, which was quite good. In the Maude days, Adrianne Barbeau got quite the name for being a sex kitten. She's quite tame by today's standards, or lack thereof.

Maude is not a Golden Girls spinoff. It was a spinoff of All in the Family. Golden Girls wasn't on until the 80s.

I wasn't even born yet when this show came on. How do I know this and you don't?

There was a guy from Philly who was obsessed with Good Times not being a Maude spinoff. Is that you, OP, or was that someone else?

For the entire run of the show, Maude also had a housekeeper. Shortly after the series began, the Findlays hired Florida Evans, a no-nonsense black woman who often had the last laugh at Maude's expense. Maude would often make a point of conspicuously and awkwardly demonstrating how open-minded and liberal she was (Florida almost quit working for Maude because of this). Despite Florida's status as a maid, Maude emphasized to Florida she felt that they were "equals," and insisted she enter and exit the Findlay house via the front door (even though the back door was more convenient).

Maude and Mrs. Naugatuck


As portrayed by Esther Rolle, the character of Florida proved so popular that, in 1974, she became the star of her own spin-off series, entitled Good Times. In the storyline of Maude, Florida's husband, Henry (later James), received a raise at his job, and she quit to be a full-time housewife and mother. Good Times is based on the childhood of its creator, Mike Evans, who starred as Lionel Jefferson on All in the Family and The Jeffersons. Whereas Maude took place in New York, the setting for Good Times was Chicago.

Whatever. It doesn't make it a good show. If I was wrong, so be it. Glad it matters so much to you.

I'm not sure how it could be a spinoff of AITF since there are no repeat characters.

How could I know that and you don't?
