When It Aired: 1987-1997
Created By: Rob Leavitt and Michael G. Moye
What Was It About: Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill), who sells women shoes, doesn't bother trying to be the father who knows best to his screwed-up son, his stupid, slutty daughter, and his lazy wife, Peg (Katey Sagal).
Why We Loved It: Because it was the anti-Cosby.
Factoid Fun: Creators named the family after professional wrestler King Kong Bundy, who repaid the favor by guesting on an 1988 episode as one of Peg's hillbilly cousins, Uncle Irwin.
Where Are They Now: While most of the family are M.I.A., Peg recently resurfaced as the soon-to-be reinstated spaceship captain for Planet Express Delivery Service a thousand years in the future, give or take a month.
