Allan Kayser, Bubba from “Mama’s Family” on those tight jeans: “501s fit me perfectly” has done a Whatever Happened To: Allan Kayser, Bubba from Mama’s Family story that I think you all might enjoy – especially the part about his tight jeans.

Here is an excerpt:

Q. Was it just me—or did Bubba’s jeans get exponentially tighter every season?
A. “Ha! Here’s a good Vickie story. When I first started the show, they had me dressed all crazy with discount store clothing, suspenders and, like, sleeveless sweater vests with reindeer on them. After maybe a half-dozen episodes, they wanted me to try a new wardrobe. I got to the set with all these new clothes and went right to Vickie because I thought it was a little weird. She said, ‘I did that! You look like a rodeo clown; all you need is a red nose. You’re a leading man, handsome—so Mama told the producers Bubba needed a new wardrobe.’ Mama started dressing me right.
I always wore 501s and to this day it’s my pants of choice. I get comments about those jeans all the time, but there’s really not that much going down there. Maybe the camera adds, you know, 10 pounds? [Laughs] They weren’t that snug. Maybe they just fit right? 501s fit me perfectly. They’re comfy. And I’m not bragging here, but I’m still wearing the same size I did back then.”
