The unaired Married… with Children pilot

Married With Children

Did you ever wonder how Married… with Children would have played out if different actors had taken the parts? No, me either, as the show was perfectly cast by the time it reached the airwaves. The show producers didn’t get it right the first time though, casting Tina Caspary instead of Christina Applegate as Kelly Bundy, and using Hunter Carson in place of David Faustino as Bud Bundy.

This side-by-side video is a great way to see just how wrong the original actors were for those parts.

They didn’t need a second chance to get Al and Peggy right!
