Episodes

Season 1: 1987

The first season of Married... with Children introduces the major characters: Al, Peg, Kelly and Bud Bundy, along with their neighbors, Steve and Marcy Rhoades. The first season is the only one where Al and Peg are regularly intimate, to the point of Al initiating the sessions. It is also the only one where Peg can be seen doing housework under normal circumstances, and she even has her own car (as seen in "Sixteen Years and what do you Get"). In "Thinnergy," Bud mentions that Kelly had been held back a year in school. Al's dislike of the French is first shown in this season and it is also the first time that he calls Marcy a "chicken." It also contains the first mention of Peg's family being "hillbillies" from the fictional Wanker County, Wisconsin.[6]

Not long after, Al and Peg are awakened by what they think is a burglar breaking in, but can't call the police because Kelly's on the phone. Al goes downstairs with the gun, searches the backyard... and shoots Bella by accident (it was wearing a hat, so Al didn't realize it was a dog). The Rhoades are furious with Al, who later pays off the garbage man with a six-pack to get rid of the body. Steve comes over to apologize for their behavior and want Bella's body so they could bury it in their backyard, but Al, thinking quickly, says he should take care of all the arrangements. That night, Al and Peg help bury the makeshift coffin, which Peg says she filled with rocks... and Al's bowling ball. Steve thinks Al's tears are for Bella...

Season 2: 1987–1988

At the beginning of the second season, Kelly is portrayed as a girl of reasonable intelligence (though she is often teased by Bud for her promiscuity and bleached hair). By the end, however, her character obtains her trademark stupidity that will become both a plot device and comic focus for the rest of the series. This season also contains the first use of the "Bundy Cheer" and the first instance of the Bundys leaving Chicago.[6] Although Buck is portrayed in later seasons as having been with the Bundys since he was a pup, it's implied by Peg that they've had him for only three years and Al states that he's actually Bud's pet; he even "speaks" once ("Buck Can Do It"), something that becomes a regular feature beginning in the fourth season. Michael Faustino (David's younger brother), makes the first of five guest appearances during the course of the series.

Season 11: 1996–1997

The eleventh season was the final season of Married... with Children. Fox moved the show's time slot several times throughout the course of the season, which cost the show ratings. Rising production costs and decreasing viewer shares led to the show's cancellation on April 17, 1997, after the final taping for Season 11. Due to this decision, there is no official "final" episode of Married... with Children, although "How to Marry a Moron, Part 2" is considered to be the final episode.[3] This was the only season to feature teaser scenes before the opening credits and a few episodes during this season also featured tag scenes just before the closing credits. For this season, the still of Al and Peggy sitting on the couch was dropped from the closing credits, which for this season are shown against a black background and in a separate card format, instead of scrolling. The opening theme was also greatly shortened, dropping the highway scenes taken from National Lampoon's Vacation, as well as the scene where Al hands every member of his family money.
