I Love My Family (simplified Chinese: 我爱我家; traditional Chinese: 我愛我家; pinyin: Wǒ Ài Wǒ Jiā) is a Chinese sitcom. It was China's first multi-camera sitcom and it originally aired from 1993 to 1994 with 120 episodes. It is also the first Mandarin-language sitcom. It was directed by Ying Da and Lin Cong and written primarily by Liang Zuo and Wang Shuo. It was produced by Beijing Red Green Blue TV and Commercials Center.

It is regarded as a "milestone of Chinese TV comedy", and its director, Ying Da, is acclaimed as the "godfather of Chinese sitcom", and "China's Norman Lear" by foreigners. Although it is a sitcom, each scene plays like a skit, combining humour and emotional content. It is notable for having a theatre-experienced cast.

Wen Xingyu (The sole senior of the cast) was regarded as the central star of the show due to his relaxing personality and screen presence.
