    OMG that would be funny lemko. I wished they'd do a reunion show or bring back the characters. Bud and Kelly could have disfunctional family's of their own. Kinda like a meet the parents type plot only more crude. :D

    Yeah Ed O'neil would be a good spokesmouth for dodge if done in a humourous fashion. :shades:

    There is a guy that looks and talks kinda like Bundy doing a commercial on tv. Think it is a loan company. He is member of golf course, shown on rider mower doing lawn, does barbeque, etc. and complains about being in debt up to his eye balls. He would be good spokesperson for bland Ford 500 or Dodge minivan.

    Would swear that Married with Children had a live audience. Vast majority of so-called comedies on tv are not, are dreadful and need laugh track recordings to try and make tv audience think that show is funny.

    Married was a genuinely funny show - for guys. Wife did not like it, think that many women did not like it.

    Does he keep his right hand in the top of his Dockers ? :D

    xrunner2 (totally off topic) -

    Yes, "Married, With Children" was filmed live. I attended the filming of an episode back when I still lived in SoCal. Was one of the last episodes that neighbor "Steve" was in.

    As opposed to being filmed dead?

    OK... thinking caps on! :P

    Which cars would you have the following characters sell?

    Cody Jarret (James Cagney) from White Heat, memorable line: Top of the world Ma!

    Inspector Harry Callahan, Go ahead... make my day ;)

    I've honestly never heard of any of those names. I have heard of the movie White Heat. :surprise:

    What the heck is Top of the World Ma ? Is that a silent film ? :surprise:

    Go ahead... make my day - Was that a onstage play back in Wyatt Earp times ? :surprise:

    LOL... OK... so you're OLD too! ;)

    Actually, for Dirty Harry I'm kind of thinking of one of the displacement on demand vehicles. He could pull up at a stop light, look over at the driver of the vehicle next to him and say...

    I know what you're thinking. Is he running on all 8 cylinders or only four? Are you feeling lucky punk?

    Jarret would have a Caddy...something big. Arguably the same model that Tony Montana ("Say hello to my little friend!") would pitch... ;)

    Callahan...no question...Ford Crown Vic. Not pretty, but functional and damn tough.

    Well I am a Cagney fan big time.

    How about Wiley E. Coyote for Yugo

    The Road Runner for the new Bugatti

    Elmer Fudd for whatever Cheney drives.

    Speed Racer for Corvette, or better yet racer 'X'.

    Matt Dillon for anything Dodge.

    Thurston Howell III for Cadillac.

    Jack Benny for Chery.

    ...Speed Racer in a Nissan 350ZX or a Supra if Toyota still made it. He was in a commercial for the VW GTi a few years ago.

    How about Tony Soprano for the Escalade? He drives one in the HBO show. Silvio Dante has a Seville STS and Paulie Walnuts is alternately seen in an Eldorado and a DeVille. Phil Leotardo has a very tacky Lincoln Town Car. Tony B. was seen in a big 1975-76 Eldorado convertible.

    Was one of the last episodes that neighbor "Steve" was in.

    Was that Marcy's first or second husband? Every character and casted actor, including dog, was excellent. Writing was superb. Think they started running out of steam in last year. Wonder if anybody is selling DVD sets by year.

    To keep this message on-topic, think that Marcy Darcy could do Mercedes commercials. Kelly could do Mustang convertible (with white interior) commercials. Thunderbird would be better, but not in production now.

    Yep, you can get the show in season DVDs now.

    And it was a fantastic show, it still just cracks me up.

    I think Steve Rhodes had a MB named 'Klaus' - I am pretty sure I remember something about 3 series BMWs, and by the time Jefferson D'Arcy was around, they might have had a MB SL.

    In an early episode, Peggy has her own car - a Pinto. There was an episode with the Bundys and a new ca. 1988 Mustang convert, too.

    I remember Kelly doing an ad for the Allante.

    suddenly appears in a remake of 'The Guantlet' ... in a Hummer and everyone scatters.

    How about Dr Evil doing a counter-ad to the VW "depimp your ride" ads where he crushes VW's :P

    How about Sanford and Son doing ads for Ford Trucks?

    Any James Bond villain who owned large yacht and had good accent. He would appreciate the finer things.

    For real people, Jay Leno or Michael Jordan would be fantastic spokespersons for Bugatti. Both could afford and like cars.

    But, Bugatti really doesn't need hyping. There are people lined up to get one and Bugatti is supposedly (according to WSJ) very choosy about who they will "let" buy the car. Has to be a car guy (person).

    Wow...now that's an odd vehicle. Seems to have Mustang underpinings (the door interiors give it away).

    Reminds me that if I ever get totally, frivilously rich, I'm buying a hovercraft... :)

    I was watching that stupid VW commercial about unpimping your car and thought that Col. Klink and Sgt. Schultz would be good for that.

    I don't think either one of them could pull off wearing the short white skirt.

    LOL!!

    I like the commercials.. That guy played on Julia Louis-Dreyfus' last show... Can't remember what it was called.. He is hilarious..

    Those could be funny with Col. Klink and Sgt. Schultz. The Col. could umpimp the ride and then when the confused owners wonders what happened, Schultz could respond...

    I know NOTHING! :P
