Subject: 'Unhappily Ever After' - the sitcom

Written By: singer on 08/01/12 at 9:52 am

Is it me or was that show a cross between 'ALF' and 'Married with Children'? I saw it recently and even the house look vaguely similar to the house on 'Married with Children'. And, of course, the rabbit doll seems like a cheaper version of ALF.

You hit the nail right on the head with the ALF + Married reference.

I liked the show.  TV Guide once ranked it in their Top 50 of worst shows of all time, but it ran 100 episodes over 5 seasons.  Someone was watching it, and I was one of those someones.

Did I watch it for it's humour?  Yes
Did I watch because it was like Married ... With Children?  Yes

Did I watch it because of Nikki Cox? 

YES!

I remember it was on the WB network from 1995-99 or thereabouts. I never watched a full episode of it but it did have its moments.

I did read somewhere that it was created by the same people who created "Married w/ Children". So it does sorta make sense in that regard.

Yeah, that puppet...whose name was Mr. Floppy. At first I wondered what kind of animal (if not an alien) he was supposed to be. And I also noticed he only talked in scenes in which Jack Molloy was the only human. If any other people were present, Floppy was just an inanimate object.

Floppy was a rabbit and yes only Jack could talk to him. It was like a Calvin and Hobbes thing. Look up the show on wikipedia; it's nothing like MWC. The writters had the plots all over the place. I watched it and it was almost hard to follow from one episode to the next. Speaking of WB's Friday primetime, remember Nick Freno: Liscensed Teacher?

Very much so.

I remember Floppy.
And he was voiced off-camera by comedic actor Bobcat Goldthwait.

I haven't seen that show since the 90s. I thought the rabbit was cool as hell. LOL!

They used Ray Charles song as their theme song.
