There were two full spin-off shows which were derived from the FOX sitcom Married with Children, though neither was successful.
- Top of the Heap, starring Matt LeBlanc and Joseph Bologna, as Vinny and Charlie Verducci, a father and son constantly attempting get-rich quick schemes. Married... with Children characters appeared constantly on the show.
- Vinnie & Bobby was an attempted revival of and continuation of the failed Top of the Heap series; premiering a year after the failed parent series in late spring of 1992, but that, as its parent series, lasted only seven episodes.
Proposed series that never made itEdit
- Radio Free Trumaine was a proposed series pitched to FOX by producers Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt and writers Richard Gurman and Stacie Lipp, which was based on the Season 9 episode Radio Free Trumaine", with the storyline centering around Bud Bundy's time in college with the campus radio station, with Steve Rhoades as the antagonistic Dean and a then 19-year old Keri Russell as Bud's fellow student and object of desire April Adams.
- Enemies, was a warped version of the NBC-TV series Friends, featuring Alan Thicke, based around Kelly Bundy's social circle. Needless to say, it did not impress the FOX network executives into shooting a pilot for it.
In addition to those three spin-off ideas, another proposed spin-off about Kelly Bundy was planned but never made for two reasons: Christina Applegate turned it down, and Fox's contract stated that the two Bundy children couldn't get spin-offs. Also, series co-creator Michael G. Moye proposed a NO MA'AM spin-off, but got turned down mainly due to Fox's fears of alienating much of the female demographic.
