About This Quiz

How well do you remember "Married... with Children?" Take this quiz to test your knowledge.

Love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage... Well... usually, but that was not always the case with Al Bundy and his wife, Peggy. Al, a shoe salesman, and Peggy, a stay-at-home mom, were less about the cooperative side of love and marriage and more about the snarky relationship between the two. This was certainly no Cosby Show.

If you were "Married... with Children" fans, you are probably thrilled with the direction that the careers of Ed O'Neill (Al) and Katey Sagal (Peg) took. O'Neill moved on from the show to play the patriarch of the clan on "Modern Family," Jay Pritchett, and Sagal went on to play the matriarch of the family on "Sons of Anarchy," Gemma Teller Morrow. Both kept their careers on the move after "Married... with Children" ended.

The same can't really be said of Al and Peggy's kids, Kelly and Bud Bundy, played by Christina Applegate and David Faustino. Although they have remained busy, neither one has quite managed to sign on to a show that has had the same success of "Married... with Children."

Are you ready to test your "Married... with Children" knowledge? Let's get started.
