A Babe in Toyland is the 18th episode of season 11 of Married... with Children and the 253rd overall series episode. Directed by Gerry Cohen and written by Valerie Ahern & Christian McLaughlin, it premiered on FOX-TV on March 17, 1997.


TV stardom goes to Kelly's head when she becomes a hit while subbing for a kiddie-show host after his breakdown. Meanwhile, Peg and Al get twin beds.

Plot SummaryEdit

Kelly takes over for a surly kids' show host after the real host goes insane on the sets. She entertains the kids with a puppet that looks like Bud. She belittles all the other characters in the show and fires Bud. Finally Bud gets her fired by getting the old host back. Meanwhile, Al and Peg experiment with sleeping in separate beds; first twin beds and then bunk beds.

Guest StarsEdit


  • The episode title is inspired by the movie "Babes in Toyland" with Laurel & Hardy.
  • Judging by her lips, the bleeped insult Kelly says to the puppeteer seems to be 'you f***ing piece of s***'.
