The story arc regarding Gloria's pregnancy and birth of Baby Joey was originally intended for the fifth season. Those plans were put on hold due to Carroll O'Connor's holdout to start that season, which resulted in newer scripts written to open that season reflecting Archie's unexpected absence. See more »
From the inside, reading backwards, we see "Kelcy's Bar". In most, but not all episodes, the ending credits spell the name of the Brendan Dillon or Bob Hastings character as "Kelsey", not "Kelcy". See more »
I was a child when this show was popular,so the political and bold racial humor it was laced with really didn't receive much attention from me.To me,Archie Bunker was just a funny guy.His back and forth with his son-in-law were funny to me,though some of their battles did get quite serious.I saw Archie as funny in those days,but today I see that though he might have appeared to be a bigot,he was so because of the way he was raised and he really did care deep down about people in general.I also was madly in love with Gloria,but that's a personal story that I won't get into.Overall,this was a funny,thought provoking show.
