Storyline

A slightly cleaner take-off of "Married with Children" with overstressed father Jack, whose life consists of a lousy job; a law-breaking, sex-starved wife; a skimpily dressing daughter with her eyes on an Ivy League school; an idiot son; and Mr Floppy, the epitome of Jack's raging schizophrenia, physically embodied in the form of a boozing, chain-smoking, perverse stuffed gray rabbit with whom Jack consults for advice in the rabbit's basement playpen, where Jack inevitably secludes himself. Written by Duke, corrected by Kiokya

Trivia

According to "Season Finale: The Unexpected Rise and Fall of The WB and UPN" by Suzanne Daniels, former executive President of Entertainment for The WB, and Cynthia Littleton, WB executives hired "Married With Children" creator Ron Leavitt to create "Unhappily Ever After" to be a "Married With Children" knockoff, hoping that it would be the breakout hit for The WB that "Married With Children" was for Fox. WB executives even jokingly called it "Divorced with Children." See more »

Great show - it kicks ASS
5 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show is great. A lot of people call it a Rip off but for gods sake!This show is done by the same people that done Married with children. So the shows are similar but thats the Joke. With a smart daughter and a stupid son and so on. But Mr. Floppy is the best Alter Ego ever and the scenes where Jack talks to Floppy with other people around are the best. This sitcom is damm the best ever and who dont understand the jokes on MWC is a jackass.
