Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The Banks family, a respectable Californian family, take in a relative - Will Smith, a street-smart teenager from Philadelphia. The idea is to make him respectable, responsible and mature, but Will has got other plans...
The Bundys are a stereotypical "white trash" American family. Al is a shoe salesman who is fond of frequently reliving his doubtful 15 seconds of fame on the football field. Al is terrified of the all-too-frequent amorous advances his ditsy wife Peggy, a woman who must spend most of Al's wages at the salon and the mall. They have two children: Kelly, the stunning but superficial party animal, and Bud, who is too wrapped up in himself to realize his goal of "scoring" with a girl. Written by

Like Seven, many of the show's extra characters lasted for one season. Al's colleague in the shoe store, Luke Ventura, appeared in season one; Amber, the D'Arcys' niece, appears in season nine; and Aaron, Al's first shoe sidekick, appeared in season nine too. See more »
Peg, could you get that? It's probably the 'Homeless: It Could Be Worse' Tour.

With rare exceptions, the end credits are played over a still of Peggy and Al (looking disgusted) sitting on the couch. See more »
Married With Children has got to be the greatest show ever. I rate it right up ther with Seinfeld and The Simpsons. Al is the king of sitcoms, Kelly is simply divine, Jefferson and Bud were perennial losers, but kept me in stitches with their antics. Peg was annoying and lazy but also quite funny. Marcy was excellent. Her verbal jousts with Al and also Jefferson were legendary!!
Married With Children - 10 out of 10 !!
