Married with Children is one of the funniest family sitcoms to ever air. The show had a great 11 season run from 1987-1997 and has the best of the best of Ed O’Neill’s comedy as Al Bundy. Thanks to its 262 episode run, Married with Children is the longest-lasting live-action sitcom to air on Fox and it is safe to say there is no other comedy sitcom like it. Today, many of the jokes and references would offend, but back then they could be truly appreciated and gave very real laugh-out-loud moments for audiences between the antics of Al, his lazy wife Peggy, their girl-awkward son Bud and their dim-witted and promiscuous daughter Kelly. More than twenty years after its finale, many of the stars are still well known, so check out how much they are all worth now!
