Long before the Kardashians built an empire, before the Real Housewives became inescapable GIFs, before Jersey Shore's castmates became pop culture icons, Ozzy Osbourne's family showed the world how to make reality television. As this list of the wildest moments from MTV's The Osbournes demonstrates, the family emerged as the original reality TV badasses against which all reality stars would - and should - be measured. Sharon, with her potty mouth and daffy mother hen sensibilities, provided a precursor to Lisa Vanderpump. Kelly's blunt opinions and wicked sense of humor set the stage for bratty behavior on Love Island and Jersey Shore. But, arguably, the centerpiece of the show - and the source of The Osbournes's wildest, craziest, most WTF moments - is Ozzy himself. Even when the camera focused solely on Ozzy, it was hard to tell if he was ever fully present, and this laid the groundwork for truly unforgettable scenes.

After revisiting some of the funniest, nuttiest, and most scandalous scenes from The Osbournes, it's easy to see how they paved the way for all the reality TV families the world has come to know and love.
