The Formans have a garage sale to earn some extra cash. Hyde doesn't have anything to sell, so he bakes "special brownies" to sell; Kitty, Red, Bob and Midge eat some of the brownies unsuspectingly. ...
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Eric Forman is a typical high school student growing up in Wisconsin in 1976 with his family and his friends. Together, they have the same kind of joys and sorrows that just about every teenager has while growing up. This show parodied many of the attitudes, events and fads of the 70s, along with those who grew up at the time.Written by

2018 was a bad year for Carsey Werner sitcoms; and their stars. The stars of three major Caresey Werner sitcoms, Bill Cosby of The Cosby Show, Roseanne Barr from Roseanne, and Danny Masterson from That 70s Show, all had scandals which extinguished their careers, and also threatened the visibility and the existence of the shows which propelled them into stardom in the first place. In April of 2018 Bill Cosby was convicted of rape by a Pennsylvania court of law, for the assault of Andrea Constadt which allegedly happened in 2005; he is now awaiting sentencing which will happen in September of 2018. As a result of all this the planned Cosby Show reboot that NBC was putting together was scrapped; and the original Cosby Show sitcom; which was a Carsey Werner mega-hit, and dominated the airways on NBC from 1984 to 1992; was also pulled from circulation. In May of 2018 Roseanne Barr tweeted out a racist insult of former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarret, comparing her to an "ape", and all of a sudden Roseanne's career was suddenly extinguished as well. Her reboot, which was a smash hit for ABC in the early part of 2018, was all of a sudden cancelled as well; as were the rebroadcast of her original Carsey Werner 1980s sitcom which dominated the airways during that period. In addition to this Danny Masterson, who played Hyde in the hit Carsey Werner sitcom, was accused by 4 women of rape in 2018, and he was then suddenly dropped from his talent agency, as well as fired from his hit show on Netflix "The Ranch." Although in Masterson's case "That 70s Show" was not pulled from circulation, like Cosby and Roseanne were in the wake of those scandals. Marcy Carsey, the lead producer of Carsey Werner, who created Cosby, Roseanne and That 70s Show, had this to say about the scandals plaguing her sitcom stars currently: "All I can say is that life gives you these surprises. The Roseanne political stance, what a surprise. Bill Cosby ... the guy that we worked with, the guy we knew him to be or thought him to be was a wonderful collaborator, a brilliant guy, very kind-hearted. When anyone was sick or had a loss, he was right there. So it was a shocker," she said, summarizing: "All these decades later to have these revelations, it's awful - but it happens." See more »
Donna justifies taking Kelso's van by reminding Eric that Kelso melted his G.I.Joe figure. Eric says, "The Real American Hero deserves better." G.I. Joe wasn't called "A Real American Hero" until the 1982 re-launch. See more »

In the episode "Christmas" (6x07) the "That '70s Show" title is decorated with Christmas tree balls again. During the opening credits Christmas bells can be heard. This was used before in episode 4x12. See more »
This is a really funny show indeed. The script is good and never fails to deliver new ideas. After seven seasons, the show hasn't got boring and that credits must go to the writers. There are some very interesting and funny characters like Red Forman, Fez or regular guest characters like Leo. The actors are quite good, especially Danny Masterson or Wilmer Valderrama (he got a fabulous accent) or Debra Jo Rupp. At first Mila Kunis was really bad but she got better as the show advanced. It is good that the story advanced really well along these seasons. And I like the way they capture the '70s atmosphere, like through the references of the movies or music.
And the title song rocks.
