The TV show Married...with Children was one of the most popular shows of the nineties.

Twenty-nine years have passed since the show Married with Children ended. David Faustino (45) had his big breakthrough as Bud Bundy alongside award-winning actors such as Christina Applegate ("Kelly"), Katey Sagal ("Peggy") and Ed O'Neill ("Al Bundy").
Married with Children: David Faustion's breakthrough
David Faustino was 13 years old when the series premiered in 1987. Married with Children ended when Faustino was 22 years old in 1997. The series revolved around the lives of the "Bundy" family.
The head of the family was "Al Bundy" who made a living selling women's shoes and loved boasting about his high school football career. His son Bud had remarkably bad luck with women, but was a straight A student, in stark comparison to his sister Kelly, whose strong point definitely wasn't studying.
