    IMDb profile

    Married… with Children was a long-running American sitcom about a dysfunctional family living in Chicago. It was the first-ever primetime television series to air on the FOX Network, debuting on April 5, 1987 and concluding June 9, 1997. The series was created by Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt. For its time, it pushed the envelope on racy topics, but this garnered the fledgling FOX network a standing among the original Three (ABC, NBC, and CBS). Its 11-season run and 259-episode total make it the second-longest-lasting sitcom on the FOX network (second only to The Simpsons) and the network's longest live-action sitcom. The theme song Love and Marriage was sung by Frank Sinatra.

    The show follows the lives of Al Bundy, a formerly glorious high school football player turned hard-luck shoe salesman; his wife Peggy, a tartish, uneducated housewife known for her large red bouffant hairdo, 1960s clothes and her funny walk due to her always wearing high heels; and their two children: Kelly, their very attractive, promiscuous, but dim-witted daughter, and Bud, their unpopular and girl-crazy but highly intelligent son (the only Bundy ever attending college). Their neighbors are the upwardly-mobile Steve and Marcy Rhoades (later with second husband Jefferson D'Arcy). Most storylines involve the ever-scheming Al being foiled by his cartoonish dim wit and bad luck.

    I am a regular watcher of TV series online so I have watched this series Married with Children fully. It was a very interesting story of a dysfunctional family from Chicago and also it was the first TV series launched by FOX. It has 11 seasons in total and is the second longest running tv series of all time. The story line is very much interesting.

    Let's see what I can remember-

    Al did some movies, and was Friday on the short lived Dragnet revival

    Peg as mentioned before did Futurama, and was on 8 Simple Rules (strange seeing her with different hair).

    Kelly did a series called Jesse... think that lasted a year or two.

    Steve went back to theater productions

    Marcy went to producing or directing

    Not sure what Bud and Jefferson have done since.
