They were basically the same show, created by the same guy...the main difference? MWC was FUNNY while UHEA wasn't!

I agree that it did seem like a knockoff of Married With Children. It's like they just changed a few things and added a puppet. Really that puppet is the only difference in the two. It's basically the same concept and the same type of charactors. I'm not really a fan of either show though. I did, however, watch Married With Children when I was little though, but anymore I don't care for it...same with this show. It did give me a few laughs back in the day though.

Another resemblance was that both shows had old hit songs as opening themes. MWC had "Love and Marriage" by Frank Sinatra while UEA had "Hit the Road Jack" by Ray Charles.

It was for sure a rip off.It was a pretty good show though and Nikki was very hot back in the day.But it was no where near as good as married with children in my opionion.The main difference being Al Bundy.Who i think might be the most hillarious charechtor in sitcom history.
George Costanza: George Costanza as you know him, Ceases to Exist! You see, right now, I have Relationship George, but there is also Independent George. That's the George you know, the George you grew up with - Movie George, Coffee shop George, Liar George, Bawdy George.
Jerry Seinfeld: I, I love that George.
George Costanza: Me Too! And he's Dying Jerry! If Relationship George walks through this door, he will Kill Independent George! A George, divided against itself, Cannot Stand!

I liked both shows but MWC was better and funnier. Unhappily... was a weird show because they would go off on these weird rants. Did you ever notice that? I believe one of the weirdest things was that when on camera they admitted that the show was going down w/o the mother and the mother returned.

Please check out my blog. I vent on all things. TV, sports etc. you name it. Its also a work in progress. Check out and see what you think.
