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.
Al Bundy is an unsuccessful middle aged shoe salesman with a miserable life and an equally dysfunctional family. 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. Marcy and Steve 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 leads him right back to where he started.Written by
A running gag throughout the series was that since Al Bundy was a lowly shoe salesman, others paid him little mind. Particularly when it came to spelling his name, as it was often misspelled in newspapers, on parking spaces, letters in the mail, and even on his own paycheck. Misspellings of Al's name included "Al Bindy," "Al Budny," "Al Birdy," "Al Bumby," "Al Boondy," and "Alf Bundy." See more »
I tried to get Al to fix the driveway a long time ago. But his philosophy is why improve a home you're only going to live in anyway?

Since the show's original theme song "Love and Marriage" has been removed from all Region 1 DVD releases of the series, the songwriting credit is generally removed from the DVD versions of these episodes. However, the credit erroneously remains in a few episodes. See more »
When aired in syndication, the intro is generally cut in half, generally omitting everything after the line "..and they will say it's elementary" in the theme song. This version of the credits ends with an alternative shot of the fountain seen at the beginning; it is pulled from the scene at the end of "A Dump of My Own" in which Al's toilet flush causes it to stop working.

This is the best show that I have ever seen. I think I have seen every episode a million times, and I never get sick of them. Al Bundy is the greatest character ever created. Unfortunately the show was cancelled a few years back, but it had a great run!
