Mad About You stars Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser remind Ellen DeGeneres she appeared on the sitcom as they chat about show's revival

They've been doing the rounds of TV talk shows to promote their Mad About You revival.

And on Tuesday, Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser will be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about their on screen reunion.

In the pre-taped interview, the two sitcom stars reminded Ellen that she'd been a guest star on one of the original episodes - something the comedienne claimed she didn't remember even when shown the clip from the episode.

In Mad About You, which ran on NBC from 1992 to 1999, Reiser and Hunt played newlyweds Paul and Jamie Buchman.

The comedy revolved around the challenges of adapting to married life together and ended shortly after they welcomed their daughter Mabel.

Twenty years after the series finale, the show returns for a 12-episode revival for Spectrum's On Demand platform.

New premise: 'We used to joke about making a reunion show,' Hunt told Ellen. 'The thing that made us say yes is someone did the math and our daughter would be leaving home right now and we thought we could write 12 shows about that'

'We used to joke about making a reunion show,' Hunt told Ellen.

'The thing that made us say yes is someone did the math and our daughter would be leaving home right now and we thought we could write 12 shows about that.'

The Oscar-winning actress explained: 'Paul just went through empty nest. I'm about to go through it. So we thought there'd be 12 stories in there somehow.'

Reiser co-created the original sitcom and both he and Hunt have writing and producer credits on the revival.

In the new episodes, their daughter Mabel is 18, a student, and has moved out to live at New York University just five blocks from the family home.

Mad About You premieres on Spectrum On Demand on Wednesday. 

The old days: Ellen appeared on Mad About You in 1998 where she was seen babysitting the on-screen couple's baby daughter Mabel. 'I don't remember it still, even looking at it,' Ellen joked when shown this clip
