Watch the Pittsburgh Pirates in 'Family Matters' mash-up video

BY Brett Smiley • August 21, 2015

The Giants' spoof of the San Francisco-based show "Full House" appears to have inspired another ABC throwback combining the Pittsburgh Pirates with the intro from another memorable TGIF-block show, "Family Matters."

The intro references the Pirates' 1979 "We Are Family" World Series Champion season led by Hall of Famer Willie Stargell when the team used the Sister Sledge tune as its theme song.

"Family Matters" first ran with "Full House" on ABC's TGIF lineup in 1989-1990. If this throwback trend is to continue, "Perfect Strangers" is up next (Boston Red Sox, perhaps?) and then "Just The Ten of Us" (obviously the Chicago Cubs with its fairly young roster). Give your own nominations below.
