Researched by: Mullon

Al Bundy is a fictional character from the U.S. television series Married... with Children. He was played by Ed O'Neill.

Al is a simple man, who finds himself constantly downtrodden by life and forever regretful of the turns his life has taken since the end of high school, when marriage and a broken leg prevented him from playing college football. The character was so popular that it has left O'Neill somewhat typecast since the series ended production.

Al Bundy is married to Peggy. He mistakenly asked her to marry him after he got drunk. He has two children: Kelly, a promiscuous dumb (albeit gorgeous) blonde, and Bud, an intelligent but perpetually horny weasel named after a brand of beer. Al lives in Chicago and is the proud owner of a Dodge (although in one episode it is revealed that "The Dodge" is constructed out of the parts of other broken-down, destroyed Dodges). He works as a shoe salesman at the fictional Gary's Shoes and Accessories for Today's Woman in the fictional New Market Mall. Al hates his job, loses it several times throughout the series, yet always ends up coming back to it. While it is suggested throughout the show that Al makes minimum-wage, it is likely an exaggeration, as the Bundys have a rather typical home that would be impossibly out of reach for a minimum-wage worker. However, in one episode, Al is offered early retirement and given a year's pay: $12,000.

It is also worth noting that throughout the series, Al is saddled with massive debts caused by everything from the various disasters he becomes involved in to his wife's spending habits and yet never seems to miss a mortgage payment or have to file for bankruptcy. The "Bundy Will" indebted the "benefactor" with these debts that Al Bundy has incurred and is used as a punishment.
