Married… with Children is television show which aired from 5 April 1987, to 9 June 1997, for a total of 259 episodes spanning eleven seasons. Throughout the show many famous actors and actresses made their mark, some going onto greater success following the conclusion of the show. From cameos to lead-billing, each of them will forever be part of the sitcom’s history.
The show follows the life of Al Bundy who resides in Chicago with his family. Once a glorious high school football player, Bundy is now domesticated, working as a women’s shoe salesman to support his family consisting of his disagreeable wife, Peggy; their pretty and promiscuous yet clueless daughter, Kelly; and their girl-crazy, witty son, Bud.
Most of the show’s storylines involve Al’s schemes being foiled by his own cartoonish dim wit and bad luck. However, as we’ll see being part of the show was anything but unlucky.
Tiffani Amber Thiessen appeared in one episode of the show in season four. In the episode, Thiessen plays Heather McCoy who’s Bud’s date at the high school dance. Bud tries to take revenge on her as she humiliated him years ago by running his underwear up a flagpole. The episode was on the back of Thiessen’s breakthrough role as Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell.
How’s she doing?
After Saved by the Bell ended in 1993, Tiffani Amber Thiessen famously replaced Shannon Doherty on Beverly Hills, 90210. Thiessen has predominantly featured on television shows, some more successful than others. Some of the more better-known shows are Two Guys and a Girl, Just Shoot Me!, Fastlane, Good Mornin, Miami, and White Collar. Lately, she has mostly acted in guest roles.
