* UnintentionallySympathetic: Al is a classic example of a UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist but his life is just so horrible that after a while you just can't help feeling sorry for him, more so than the series writers probably intended.

** In their HalloweenEpisode, "Take My Wife, Please", when Death comes to take him, Al wishes for Death to take either Michael Bolton or whoever wrote that ''Series/TheFactsOfLife'" theme song instead. One of the writers of said theme was Alan Thicke. Come 2016, the joke is no longer funnier due to Thicke dying of a heart attack.



** The house, aside from crawling with cockroaches, but the cabinets in the kitchen is used so infrequently, given Peg's lackluster housekeeping, there's [[spoiler: a bat]] living inside of them.
** Another episode had Peg grooming Al to go to a family wedding. After brushing his teeth, she then uses the toothbrush on his underarms, only to bemoan about to doing a good job and [[{{Squick}} using the same brush on his teeth again!]]

** In "Kelly Does Hollywood: Part 2", one of the posters hanging on the wall at the TV studio is for a show called "Amos and Andrew", starring a black man and white man. Over a year later, a film called "Amos & Andrew", starring Creator/NicolasCage and Creator/SamuelLJackson, was released.



** Along the same lines, anytime Bud was grabbed by a fat woman and forced to have sex with her. Played for laughs, but would be viewed as female-on-male rape today.

** Along the same lines, anytime Al had sex with Peg against his will (or vice versa), or Bud was grabbed by a fat woman and forced to have sex with her. Played for laughs, but would be viewed as spousal rape and female-on-male rape rape, respectively, today.

* JumpingTheShark: Surprisingly, Creator/TedMcGinley didn't ruin the show when he appeared on it as Marcy's second husband. However, the show did hit a wall when [[CousinOliver Seven (Peg's nephew) came over to stay with the Bundys]]. No one -- not even the cast -- liked the change, so they wrote Seven off as going missing after he walked upstairs. Later episodes would have his face on a milk carton, with no one around noticing or caring that the kid had gone missing.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[KentBrockmanNews Local reporter]] Miranda Veracruz de la Hoya Cardinal. Just saying her name got a huge reaction.

* NauseaFuel: Many things about Al and the Bundy home itself. His [[SmellyFeet notorious foot odor]] is enough to not kill a plant but to make humans sick, including an assassin sent to kill him.
