The single-camera sitcom to which all other single-camera sitcoms must answer is almost certainly, no-really-this-time-we-promise, coming back. And it's not just a movie, as has been rumored since Ron Howard's only on-screen appearance at the very end of the show's final episode. No, we allegedly get a short season updating us on the progress of each character in turn plus a movie! Huzzah!

The Bluths aren't exactly a musical family, but nearly every character performed at least once during the show's initial run. Below, we bring you the Bluth family's top ten forays into song. Note: All images appear courtesy of Fox and Hulu.

10. Buster! You can't do that on the balcony, buddy? Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

I tried to express something to you in some of those numbers. And maybe, just maybe, heal this country a little bit.
