Married... With Different Children

The odds were stacked against it; it was a seemingly crude sitcom airing on a new network that many thought would quickly fail. Strangely enough, not only would the network become successful, but the show in question would be one of its breakout shows. Married... With Children would become the earliest hit show on the Fox Television network, but it didn't seem like it after the pilot had finished shooting.

Fox liked both Katey Sagal and Ed O'Neill as the parents, but decided it wanted a different set of kids for the show. Originally, Tina Caspary was cast as Kelly and Hunter Carson was cast as Bud.

After recasting the show, Fox had found its Bundy kids- Christina Applegate as Kelly and David Faustino as Bud.
