Overview

The generational gap is oftentimes brutal. And it's never been bigger or funnier than in the Keaton Household between the parents of the '60s and the children of the '80s.

Liberals of the 60's, devout hippies, and Peace Corps activists Steven and Elyse Keaton find themselves challenged by their growing children of the 1980s with their youngest and precocious tomboy Jennifer; the shallow and materialistic Mallory; and the money grubbing, fanatical Young Republician Party card carrying member Alex P. Keaton whose personal hero is President Richard Nixon.

But despite their wildly different political leanings and personality clashes, this family remains tied together somehow.

One of the most popular American family sitcoms of the 1980s, Family Ties also had a made-for-TV movie, Family Ties Vacation.  Much of the success of the TV series was given towards its breakout character of Alex P. Keaton who was portrayed by Michael J. Fox. This series is credited with launching his career and Fox won no less than three consecutive Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for his performances during the series' run.

Family Ties was also tangentially connected with another TV series, Day by Day which was co-created by Gary David Goldberg. The family patriarch in that series, Brian Harper was Steven Keaton's roommate in college and now co-ran a day care center that the Keatons' youngest, Andrew attended.

There was also an attempt to create a spin-off with Mallory Keaton's long-time boyfriend, Nick into his own series, The Art of Nick with a pilot episode being produced but failed to be picked up for syndication.
