* The role of large lady Hattie Jacques on ''HancocksHalfHour'' was, as often as not, to be motherly and comforting to TonyHancock and the boys, usually after some far-fetched get-rich-quick scheme had failed. She often tries to do this through food, even though she was not the world's best cook.

* TV archaeologist and historian Bettany Hughes is also a woman who gets close to the earth. Archaeologists bend over a lot whilst digging, trowelling or exploring with fingertips to get the Earth to give up its secrets of the past. Bettany has a lot in common with [[GroundForce Charlie Dimmock]] when on digs, especially in the warm sunny climes she favours such as Greece, Egypt and the Middle East. Hey, there's a lot of archaeology and history there. And shorts, flimsy low-cut t-shirts or vests are mandatory in hot climates.

If afflicted or badly aspected, can shade into the JewishMother or the MyBelovedSmother. And bear in mind the flipside of BrawnHilda is a vengeful Valkyrie with a very big spear. Compare and contrast ApronMatron.

A [[MotherNature goddess of the earth/nature/fertility/motherhood]] is more often than not an example of this trope. If an Earth Mother is afflicted or badly aspected, she can shade into the JewishMother or the MyBelovedSmother. And bear in mind the flipside of BrawnHilda is a vengeful Valkyrie with a very big spear. Compare and contrast ApronMatron.

* Eva Wilt in Tom Sharpe's ''{{Wilt}}'' series. A larger-than-life mother of quadruplet daughters and wife to Henry. Although she is a prime example of the cranky underappreciated kind of Earth Mother.

* While childless, {{Batman}}'s adversary Poison Ivy (Pamela Isley) shows nurturing love for all things green and growing and is cranky on issues such as pollution and pesticides. She has attacked pollutors without mercy in defence of her beloved plants, but has also, (in extremis), nurtured humans, after an apocalypse, with abundant fast-growing fruit and veg.

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]] * TheHecateSisters are a related trope. Mother Goddesses exist in many religions. ** Babylonia; Ishtar/Astarte ** Ireland/the Celtic world: Dana, Fand, Brigid ** Greece: Hera, Ceres. ** Scandinavia: Freya (Frigg) ** Rome: Juno, Demeter *Arguably, the Virgin Mary is a Christian take on the idea - more Mother of God than Mother Goddess.
