List of Married... with Children episodes


'''''Married... with Children''''' is an American sitcom+ that aired for 11 seasons. It featured a dysfunctional family+ living in a fictional Chicago+ suburb. The show, notable for being the first prime-time television series to air on Fox+
The series' 11-season, 259-episode run makes it the longest-lasting live-action sitcom on the Fox network. Its theme song+ is "Love and Marriage+" by Sammy Cahn+ and Jimmy Van Heusen+, performed by Frank Sinatra+ from the 1955 television production ''Our Town''.

The first season of the series was videotaped at ABC Television Center+ in Hollywood. From season 2 to season 8, the show was taped at Sunset Gower Studios+ in Hollywood, and the remaining three seasons were taped at Sony Pictures Studios+ in Culver City+. The series was produced by Embassy Communications+ during its first season and the remaining seasons by ELP Communications+ under the studio Columbia Pictures Television+ (and eventually Columbia TriStar Television+).

In 2008, the show placed #94 on ''Entertainment Weekly+'''s: "New TV Classics" list.

On April 22, 2012, Fox re-aired the series premiere in honor of its 25th anniversary.

On September 11, 2014, it was announced that a spin-off was in the works, centered on the character of Bud Bundy.

The show follows the lives of Al Bundy+, a once glorious high school football+ player turned hard-luck women's shoe salesman; his obnoxious wife, Peggy; their attractive, promiscuous, and dim daughter, Kelly; and their girl-crazy, wisecracking son, Bud. Their neighbors are the upwardly-mobile Steve Rhoades and his wife Marcy, who later gets remarried to Jefferson D'Arcy, a white-collar criminal who becomes her "trophy husband" and Al's sidekick. Most storylines involve Al's schemes being foiled by his own cartoonish dim wit and bad luck. His rivalry with and loathing for Marcy play a significant role in most episodes.

*1 The number of episodes is the total for both of the dogs combined.
*2 The name of the dog was officially changed to Buck during season 4, so he wouldn't have to listen to two names.
*3 Lucky is the reincarnation of Buck during Seasons 10 and 11.
*4 David Garrison left the show during Season 4, but returned in four episodes as a special guest.

* Al Bundy+ (Ed O'Neill+)—the head of the Bundy household; afflicted by the "Bundy curse" that consigns him to an unrewarding career selling women's shoes and a life with a family that mocks and disrespects him but who still enjoys the simple things in life. He constantly attempts to relive his high-school Big Man On Campus days, when he was the "All State Fullback". His most noted achievement was having scored four touchdowns in a single game for Polk High. His favorite things in life are the local nudie bar, his collection of "BigUns" magazine, his television, his Dodge+ car with almost 1 million miles on the odometer, and a television show called "Psycho Dad." Despite his family's contempt for him, and his for them, Al is always ready to defend Bundy honor (often with his fists), and he is fiercely protective of daughter Kelly, his "little girl" who rarely had a boyfriend Al didn't beat up.

* Peggy Bundy (Katey Sagal+)—Al's wife who is always on his case about money and refuses to clean or cook. She is a lazy, big-haired redhead who spends most of her time parked in front of the TV watching talk shows such as Oprah+ or robbing Al blind to go shopping; a famously inattentive mother and nagging wife who uses every opportunity to humiliate Al about his job, his meager earnings, and even sexual abilities. Her big taste for things like clothes and male strippers have run Al into debt on numerous occasions. A recurring joke in the series is Al's regret of having married Peggy in the first place; the union was forced on him at shotgun+-point. Peggy's best friend is Marcy, with whom she occasionally conspires against Al. Her family is a stereotypical backwoods clan of degenerates whom she often forces the other Bundys to endure, especially her morbidly obese mother whom Al finds intolerable.

* Kelly Bundy (Christina Applegate+)—the Bundys' firstborn; a stereotypical dumb blonde+ who is often derided as promiscuous and dates men who get under Al's skin to the point of him physically assaulting them. Her stupidity manifests in many ways, from forgetting ideas on the spot to mispronouncing or misspelling simple words. Like her mother, she is quick to steal Al's money for expensive things. Her favorite hobby is belittling her lonely and sexless brother, though she stands up for him against anyone outside the family.

* Bud Bundy (David Faustino+)—the younger Bundy offspring, and the most intelligent family member; the first Bundy to attend college. His awkwardness and preoccupation with sex leads to inevitable failures with women. To improve his success with girls, Bud often uses his alternate persona, "Grandmaster B," a bad-boy rapper from New York City. When using the "Grandmaster B" persona, Bud usually wears dark sunglasses and a backward Los Angeles Raiders+ hat. His mistreatment at the hands of Kelly is returned in kind, making jokes at her expense regarding her promiscuity and stupidity, but when she is in a legitimate bind, Bud will stand up for her, much like Kelly does for him under similar circumstances.

* Marcy (Rhoades) D'Arcy (Amanda Bearse+)—the Bundys' next-door neighbor; Peggy's best friend and Al's nemesis; an educated banker, but also a feminist+ and environmentalist who often protests Al's schemes with his NO MA'AM (National Organization of Men Against Amazonian Masterhood) group. Marcy is chauvinistic and the founder and leader of an anti-man support group called "FANG" (Feminists Against Neanderthal Guys). Despite her political correctness and structured life, Marcy harbors a dark, somewhat sexually deviant side, which comes up when she reminisces over events in her past. Al is repulsed by Marcy and frequently belittles her, likening her to a chicken, and mockingly confusing her for an adolescent male. At the outset of the show, Marcy is married to Steve Rhoades. After Steve is written off the show during the fourth season, he is replaced by Jefferson D'Arcy.

* Steve Rhoades (David Garrison+) is Marcy's first husband. A nerdy banker who is dragged into Al's schemes, such as going to strip clubs, chasing after girls, watching sports when Marcy disapproves, and reading pornographic magazines. Steve's most prized possession is his Mercedes Benz+, which he does not even let Marcy drive. Growing increasingly tired of Marcy's controlling behavior, Steve eventually leaves her during the fourth season to become a forest ranger at Yosemite National Park+. He comes back in "The Egg and I" to try and reclaim his old life with Marcy, but found trouble with Jefferson. Steve later has another job as the chancellor of Bud's college, after blackmailing the previous one he worked under as a chauffeur+.

* Jefferson D'Arcy (Ted McGinley+), a pretty-boy scam artist to whom Marcy wakes up one morning and discovers she is married. Unlike Steve, Jefferson is an unemployed, lazy dimwit who takes advantage of Marcy. When he gets caught, he distracts her by working his pretty-boy charm and resorting to sexual bartering. Steve and Jefferson don't like each other for personal reasons.

* Buck (portrayed by Buck Bundy, originally named "Mike", voiced by Cheech Marin+, Kevin Curran+, and Kim Weiskopf+)spaced ndash: The Bundys' wisecracking dog, who insults his family and is punished upon his death by being reincarnated as Lucky, the dog the Bundys acquire to replace Buck.

During its eleven-season run on the Fox network, ''Married ... with Children'' aired 258 episodes. A 259th episode, "I'll See You in Court+" from season 3, never aired on Fox (see below) but premiered on FX and has since been included on DVD and in syndication packages. The episode counts in the chart below include it. There were also three specials that aired following the series' cancellation, including a cast reunion.


Despite the show's enduring popularity and loyal fanbase, ''Married ... with Children'' was never a huge ratings success. Part of the reason was the simple fact that Fox, being a new startup network, did not have the affiliate base of the Big Three television networks+, thus preventing the series from reaching the entire country. In an interview for a special commemorating the series' 20-year anniversary in 2007, Katey Sagal stated that part of the problem the series faced was that many areas of the country were able to get Fox only through low-quality UHF channels+ well into the early 1990s while some areas of the country did not receive the new network at all.

Another problem lay in the fact that many of the newly developed series on Fox were unsuccessful, which kept the network from building a popular lineup to draw in a larger audience. In its original airing debut, ''Married ... with Children'' was part of a Sunday lineup that competed with the popular ''Murder, She Wrote+'' and Sunday-night movie on CBS. Fellow freshman series included ''The Garry Shandling Show+'', ''Duet+'', and ''The Tracey Ullman Show+'', which were canceled in 1988, 1989, and 1990 respectively. The success of ''The Simpsons+'', which debuted on ''The Tracey Ullman Show'' in 1987, helped draw some viewers over to Fox, allowing ''Married ... with Children'' to sneak into the top 50 of television shows for seasons 4 through 8 doing its best overall rating at number 29 for its sixth season. Although these ratings were small in comparison with the other three networks, they were good enough for Fox to keep renewing the show.

In 1989, Terry Rakolta+, a housewife from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan+, led a boycott of the show after viewing the episode "Her Cups Runneth Over+". Offended by the images of an old man wearing a woman's garter and stockings, the scene where Steve touches the pasties of a mannequin dressed in S&M gear, a homosexual man wearing a tiara on his head (and Al's line "...and they wonder why we call them 'queens'"), and a half-nude woman who takes off her bra in front of Al (and is shown with her arms covering her bare chest in the next shot), Rakolta began a letter-writing campaign to advertisers, demanding they boycott the show.

After advertisers began dropping their support for the show and while Rakolta made several appearances on television talk shows demanding the show's cancellation, Fox executives refused to air the episode titled "I'll See You in Court+". This episode would become known as the "Lost Episode" and was aired on FX+ on June 18, 2002, with some parts cut. The episode was packaged with the rest of the third season in the January 2005 DVD+ release (and in the first volume of the ''Married ... With Children Most Outrageous Episode'' DVD set) with the parts cut from syndication restored.

Rakolta has been referenced twice on the show: "Rock and Roll Girl", when a newscaster mentioned the city Bloomfield Hills, and "No Pot to Pease In", when a television show was made about the Bundy family and then was cancelled because (according to Marcy) "some woman in Michigan+ didn't like it".

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment+ has released all eleven seasons of ''Married... with Children'' on DVD in Regions 1, 2, and 4. On December 12, 2010, Sony released a complete series set on DVD in Region 1.

On August 27, 2013, it was announced that Mill Creek Entertainment+ had acquired the R1 rights to various television series from the Sony Pictures library including ''Married... with Children'' with the original theme song "Love and Marriage+" sung by Frank Sinatra+. They have subsequently re-released the first six seasons on DVD. Seasons 7 and 8 will be re-released on January 6, 2015.

(Note: The Big Bundy Box set's Special Features contains interviews with David Faustino and Katey Sagal)

The DVD box sets from season 3 onward do not feature the original "Love and Marriage" theme song in the opening sequence. This was done because Sony was unable to obtain the licensing rights to the theme song for later sets. Despite this, the end credits on the DVDs for season 3 still include a credit for "Love and Marriage." On the Mill Creek sets, Love and Marriage is restored from Season 3 onward.

In December 2007 the '''Big Bundy Box'''—a special collection box with all seasons plus new interviews with Sagal and David Faustino—was released. This boxset was released in Australia (Region 4) on November 23, 2009.

;Argentina
An Argentine remake was made in 2005, called ''Casados con Hijos+''. The series was also shown by local channels in Uruguay+, Paraguay+, and Peru+. Only two seasons were made (2005 and 2006), but it is still aired Monday through Friday at 2pm and Saturday at 11.30 pm by Telefe+.

The character names are: José "Pepe" Argento (based on Al, played by Guillermo Francella+), Mónica "Moni" Argento (based on Peggy, played by Florencia Peña+), Paola Argento (based on Kelly, played by Luisana Lopilato+), Alfio "Coqui" Argento (based on Bud, played by Darío Lopilato+), Dardo and María Elena Fuseneco (based on Marcy and Jefferson D'Arcy, played by Marcelo de Bellis+ and Érica Rivas+).

;Armenia

;Brazil

;Bulgaria
In Bulgaria a remake is airing from March 26, 2012 with the name ''Женени с деца в България'' (Zheneni s detsa v Bulgaria) (Married with children in Bulgaria).

;Croatia
In Croatia a remake called ''Bračne vode'' was broadcast from September 2008 until November 2009 on Nova TV+ channel. The characters based on the Bundys were called Zvonimir, Sunčica, Kristina and Boris Bandić while the ones based on Marcy and Steve were called Marica and Ivan Kumarica.

;Germany
In Germany, the 1992 remake ''""'', broadcast in the prime time+, reached double the audience than the original (broadcast in the early fringe+ time). This, however, was not enough to maintain the series, so it was cancelled after one season. The remake used the exact translated scripts of the original series (which already substituted localised+ humour and in-jokes for incomprehensible references to American TV shows not shown in Germany, as well as some totally different jokes) and just renamed place and person names according to the new setting.

'''' was aired from March to December 1993 for 26 episodes.

;Hungary
In 2006, Hungarian TV network TV2+ purchased the license rights including scripts and hired the original producers from Sony Pictures for a remake show placed in Hungarian environment. It was entitled '''' (in English: ''Married with children in Budapest+'', loan translation: ''A gruesomely decent family in Budapest''). The main story began with the new family called the Bándis inherit an outskirt house from their American relatives the Bundys. They filmed a whole season of 26 episodes, all of them being remade versions of the plots of the original first seasons. It was the highest budget sitcom ever made in Hungary. First it was aired on Tuesday nights, but was beaten by a new season of ''ER+'', then placed to Wednesday nights. The remake lost its viewers, but stayed on the air due to the contract between Sony and TV2.

;Russia

The Original ''Married... With Children'' ran on DTV for almost three years, on a daily basis, broadcasting the episodes from seasons 1–10. The show later aired on Domashniy TV.

''Top of the Heap+'' was a sitcom starring Matt LeBlanc+. The show was about Vinnie Verducci (played by LeBlanc) and his father Charlie (played by Joseph Bologna+) always trying get rich quick+ schemes. The Verduccis were introduced in an earlier episode where Vinnie dated Kelly Bundy, and Charlie was introduced as an old friend of Al Bundy's. The end of the pilot episode shows Al breaking into their apartment and stealing their TV to replace the one he lost betting on Vinnie in a boxing match. However, the show didn't last long and was ultimately cancelled. It had its own spin-off/sequel called ''Vinnie and Bobby+'' a year later, which was also canceled.


The series ran on Fox+
''Married... with Children'' originally debuted in off-network syndication distributed by Columbia Pictures Television Distribution+ (now Sony Pictures Television Distribution+) starting in the fall of 1991.

The version found on the Third Season DVD set is edited. In 2008, the Spike+ network reportedly paid US$12 million for broadcast rights to every episode including the unedited version of the infamous episode, "I'll See You in Court+".

TBS also began airing the show shortly after, acquiring the show in fall 2008 to run in the early morning hours, it runs for two to three hours (on rare occasions four or five) on TBS during the early morning hours (depending on the length of overnight programming).

The opening footage comprises views of Chicago, opening with a shot of Buckingham Fountain+ in Grant Park+. The aerial downtown shot was taken from the Lake Shore Drive+ section north of the Loop. The expressway entrance shot was taken from the 1983 movie ''National Lampoon's Vacation+'' featuring the Griswolds' green family truckster. Both the downtown view and the highway entrance shot were omitted from Season 4 onwards, but the remaining fountain shot included an "In Stereo Where Available" note. Non-English versions might differ, e.g. the dubbed German version always includes the expressway shot.
