The Bundys Return

Everyone thinks reboots are new.  But when I was a kid, there was a strange phenomenon – cancelled live-action shows would come back as cartoons!  We had Gilligan’s Island, The Brady Kids, The Partridge Family and even Laverne & Shirley.  Many of them featured the original stars doing the voices, with a notable exception being Tina Louise, which led to Dawn Wells voicing both Mary Ann and Ginger!  I bring up this little bit of nostalgia because another series is doing the same thing.  Married…with Children left the airwaves in 1997 (and was FOX’s first real bona fide hit).  But it’s coming back as an animated series…with the four original leads!  They aren’t alone – Norman Lear is planning an animated version of Good Times.
