He has a very attractive but lazy wife named Peggy who constantly nags him to death while throwing the little money he earns away on herself. He also has a very promiscuous teen-aged daughter named Kelly who makes up in attractiveness what she lacks in IQ points, and a not-so-attractive but bright teen-aged son named Bud who seems to think he is a ladies’ man. To add to Al’s misery is his yuppie next-door neighbors Marcy and Steve. They eventually split up with Marcy keeping the house next door to the Bundys and Steve moving away to be a forest ranger. Later, Marcy gets remarried to a gigolo named Jefferson, who is the male version of Peggy. The sitcom revolves around Al’s never-ending attempts to better his life which always lead him right back to where he started. Plot: Al Bundy is an unsuccessful middle aged shoe salesman with a miserable life and an equally dysfunctional family. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.

A Great Resource for the Resourceless
Tom Sharpe once wrote the following regarding one of his characters: “Like so many great men, Lord Petrefact loathed his nearest and dearest…”
Many of us identify with Lord Petrefact, but are at a loss to express ourselves in this “don’t worry–be happy,” never-say-anything-negative world. We have very few role models to lead us against appalling, manipulative family members, and have often resigned ourselves to our fate. We’ve gone about our lives lacking the words to easily repel the smiley-face squads.
The Bundys are a superb resource for people like us. We can’t and shouldn’t adopt a Bundy-like demeanour to truly nice, kind people. But the Bundys suggest to us what we can say to obnoxious relatives and neighbours — our nearest and (supposedly) dearest, who want US to do THEIR bidding so THEY can receive undue obedience, money, goods or status from OUR successes or aspirations.
For example, in one episode, Al thinks of buying a new car. Peg, Kelly and Bud all sneer at the type of car he chooses, telling him high-handedly what kind each of them particularly thinks he should buy — i.e., what they want HIM to buy to satisfy THEM. Al does what most of us should do in such circumstances: He spreads his arms in a great paternal gesture, smiles broadly, and says, “Your wishes [slight pause for effect] mean nothing to me.” It’s extremely refreshing to hear. And it’s very, very funny. The fact that virtually every character appearing throughout the show’s long run was extremely sleazy allows this sort of repartee to continue uninterrupted.
God bless Al Bundy. The show has changed my life.
Imagine what a gamble it was to put this series on the air: a show about a dysfunctional family (we might call them the anti-family) consisting of four unlikable people. Each of them is lazy, inconsiderate, and self-centered. And none of them are bright.
The Bundys (and their neighbors) are certainly not role models. The fact that none of them are angels, and each of them is out to screw over the others, gives the writers a freedom to attack any of the characters without mercy. Sarcasm is the language the Bundys know best.
The father, Al (Ed O’Neill) is portrayed as an incompetent shoe salesman who hates his job. Wife Peggy’s (Katey Sagal) goal in life is to spend all the family’s money on her personal indulgences. Daughter Kelly (Christina Applegate) is promiscuous and, somehow, dumber than the others. Son Bud (David Faustino) is a chip off the old block.
The cast would go on to better work (for example, Ed O’Neill in “Modern Family”, that excellent sitcom), but for the many years this series aired, they gave us a comedic free-for-all that remained focused on acerbic humor, without political correctness or conventional values getting in the way.
