Classic Bundys Go on Vacation!, 18 May 2009
Author: ( from United States

Move over Clark and Ellen Griswolds, the Bundys are going on vacation to Dumpwater, Florida because it's only $8.00 a night. Of course, what they don't know is that every five years there is a serial killer on the loose in town. The locals know all about it but don't tell the hotel guests. Anyway, Peggy and the kids are upset that they are not in Hawaii. The Bundys borrow the Rhodes' good luggage and camera while they go away. Since this show was the first sitcom on the network, the Bundys don't really go away out of the studio. It's a classic Bundys episode. I love the beginning of it because it's in black and white and reassures the audience that this is Married with Children and it will return in color shortly.
