Three different, but related families face trials and tribulations in their own uniquely comedic ways.
All of the families are loosely based off of the creators' families and friends. In fact, creator Steve Levitan created the Dunphy children from his own children: Hannah/Haley was 15, Alexa/Alex was 13 and Griffin/Luke was 11.
Family is family. Whether it's the one you start out with, the one you end up with, or the family that you gain along the way.
Mitchell and Cameron adopted a child from Vietnam. This is legally impossible as Vietnam's laws forbid a child to be adopted by single parents or same sex couples. They could still adopt the child illegally but then it would be impossible to bring it back to the States.
At the beginning of each episode, the actors' names appear on screen in order of their character's ages. (Oldest to youngest)
