Married with Children Fountain - At the beginning of each episode of the dysfunctional sitcom MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97, a large fountain is shown spouting water into the air as Frank Sinatra sings the theme song "Love and Marriage."

Buckingham Fountain as seen on MARRIED WITH CHILDREN

The fountain (modeled after the Versailles' Latona Basin Fountain in France) is actually the Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain.

Dedicated in 1927, the fountain was a gift to the city of Chicago by Miss Kate Sturges Buckingham in memory of her brother Clarence.

The fountain is located in Grant Park between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois. The Buckingham fountain is actually controlled by a computer in Atlanta, Georgia.

TRIVIA NOTE: The Buckingham Fountain was supposedly inspired the name of The Buckingham's, a late 1960s and early 1970s pop band who recorded such hits as "Don't You Care," "Kind of a Drag," "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," and "Hey Baby They're Playing Our Song."
