Alternate Versions

In later seasons of the show, the theme song was re-recorded with Edith Bunker (Jean Stapleton) more clearly enunciating the line "Gee, our old LaSalle ran great!"
Some of the episodes shown on Nick at Nite were edited some, but the full versions were released on video. For example:
  • In the episode "Archie Gives Blood", after Archie inquires as to whether or not the nurse was "one of them senoritas", the part of him describing why he thought this was cut.


  • In the episode "Mike's Hippy Friends Come to Visit", extra dialogue was cut for no appearent reason, and the part at the end when Archie is asleep and Edith, Mike and Gloria sing offkey to wake him up was cut.


  • In the episode "Meet the Bunkers", at the end of the episode when Mike claims he's the one who bought the card that Archie supposidly got Edith was cut when aired on Nick at Nite.


  • In the episode where Archie orders Edith to quit her job but she rebels, when aired on TV Land it shows the opening where Archie comes home to find no Edith, on Nick at Nite, the episode just opens with Edith rushing in the house and getting dinner started.


  • In the episode "The Baby, Part II", Nick at Nite edits the scene where Archie enters the room occupied by Mrs. Stipic. After he asks for some cold cream to remove his dark makeup he was wearing at the minstrel show, originally Mrs. Stipic called for help, saying a "fat black man" wanted to rape her. The Nick at Nite version omits this, cutting directly to Archie asking a nurse where the restroom is located.


An extended opening sequence with an alternate arrangement of "Those Were the Days" has been produced but is not seen in any episode in syndication.
When episodes air on TV, they are trimmed to fit the alotted time. The complete versions are available on video and DVD.
There is a scene cut out of episode "Archie And The Mob" as it is seen in the Complete 2nd Season DVD set. It is a short (roughly 30 second) clip of dialog. It is a scene where Archie mentions the 'fraternity' that the shoemaker belongs to. The scene is present in the Columbia House VHS edition of the episode.
