SynopsisEdit

When AL discovers that Peg has been spending money on old junk from everyone else's yard sales, the Bundys have one of their own. They find it difficult to attract customers and come up with a few ideas.

Episode summaryEdit

When he discovers how many pointless and expensive knick-knacks Peg has picked up at yard sales, Al decides the family are going to have one of their own to raise some cash. Their collection of junk, however, fails to whet the appetite of the buying public, and they turn to ever more extreme ideas in the hope of attracting customers. Peggy, who will buy anything at a yard sale, brings home a boar's head, but there's no more room in the garage to put it. So, Al decides enough is enough and he decides to have his own yard sale, despite Peggy's protests. But the stuff he is selling is stuff only Peggy would be stupid enough to buy. Al's next idea is to create "Bundyland, the happiest place on Earth," which is a collection of all the junk items Peggy bought in their own back yard! Meanwhile, Marcy has a date.

Guest starringEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Peggy smokes for the last time in this episode.
  • While talking to Peggy and Al about being nervous about her date, she mentions that it had been three months since she had sex. She also mentions to them that Steve's strengths included sex and show tunes trivia. This likely a reference to David Garrison who had left MWC after the episode "Rock and Roll Girl" due his desire to perform in live theater.
  • Bundyland and the slogan "The Happiest Place on Earth" is a reference to the amusement park, Disneyland.
  • Upon visiting Bundyland, Marcy calls Al "P.T. Barnum", a reference to the founder of the traveling circus group, Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
