Identical script to official pilot except Kelly and Bud were played by Tina Caspary and Hunter Carson. Ed O'Neil felt the chemistry wasn't right and Kelly and Bud were replaced by Christina Applegate and David Faustino.

The original pilot was taped on December 12, 1986. The producers were not happy with the original child actors Tina Caspary
(as Kelly) and Hunter Carson
(as Bud). They recast the roles and all the scenes with the Bundy kids had to be reshot. See more
