Synopsis

The show follows the lives of Al Bundy, a once-glorious high school football player turned hard-luck salesman of women's shoes; his wife, Peggy, a tartish, uneducated housewife with a large red bouffant hairdo, 1960s clothes and funny walk caused by wearing high heels; Kelly, Al and Peggy's pretty, promiscuous, dim-witted daughter; and Bud, their unpopular, girl-crazy, intelligent son (and the only Bundy who ever attended college).

Their neighbours are the upwardly-mobile Steve and Marcy Rhoades. (Marcy later marries Jefferson D'Arcy.)

Most storylines involve a scheming Al being foiled by his cartoonish dim wit and bad luck. His rivalry and loathing of Marcy also play a significant role in most episodes.

The less-than-lovable Bundys are a radical departure from the saccharine-sweet TV families popular since the days of Father Knows Best.

With offbeat humour and unflinching honesty, Married with Children paints a more realistic picture of middle-class existence, warts and all.
