Michael J. Fox 'Family Ties' Flashback: Remember When Tom Hanks Played His Uncle?

With Michael J. Fox discussing a return to NBC this fall, we thought we'd revisit one of his many memorable moments from "Family Ties," the long-running sitcom on which he famously played Alex P. Keaton.

In the 1984 episode "Say Uncle," Alex discovers that his Uncle Ned (played by Oscar winner Tom Hanks) has a drinking problem. Check out this clip, in which Alex attempts to intervene and gets clocked by his alcoholic uncle, before Ned ultimately agrees to call AA.
