Al Bundy is a fictional character and the essential protagonist of the U.S. television series Married… with Children, played by Ed O’Neill. He is a misanthropic, working-class father of two, portrayed as a somewhat tragicomic figure. Although he is a born loser who constantly laments his lot in life, he nevertheless stands by his family, displaying wit, self-sacrifice, and resilience in times of crisis. He and his wife, Peg, were rated the 59th best characters on television by Bravo. (Wikipedia)
