Throughout the '80s, the Keaton family dominated the TV screen as we watched liberal ex-hippies Elyse and Steven raise their four children, Mallory, Jennifer, Andrew, and of course, Alex P. Keaton, in Columbus, Ohio. Doesn't this theme tune just send all the nostalgia flooding back?

The series was a perfect demonstration of the cultural divide between the generations in the 1980s, and even President Ronald Reagan once stated that it was his favorite TV show. It may be hard to believe, but it's been 33 years since Family Ties debuted, and 26 years since the show ended its final run in May, 1989. With all that time passing, the cast has surely changed. Take a look at what the Keaton family and cast of Family Ties look like now:
