** Feminists are stereotyped as your typical StrawFeminist: as all being unattractive, butch, [[ActionGirl overpowered]] stick-in-the-muds who want to take away everything men like just because they can and who abuse the fact that they're women.

** In "Peggy Sue Got Work", Peggy gets a job in a department store to earn money for a VCR. While working, she overhears a customer talking about Oprah doing a whole week on "Transsexuals: Which Bathroom Should They Use?" No longer funny after 2016 when this very issue was a national controversy.

** Happened plenty of times throughout the series, but when Peg and Al stole Bud's scholarship money, you can say it was low even for them. To be fair, they thought they were simply ripping off the bank, and were genuinely remorseful when they learned that the money belonged to Bud.

** As if past occasions where she mocked her starving children, sold Al's Playboys to gain money for a lottery scam she learned about [[WhatAnIdiot in a tabloid]] and even was complicit in the death of a man (yet received [[KarmaHoudini no consequences for it]]), "A Taxing Problem" displays Peg at her most callous and [[{{Greed}} greediest]]. After illegally declaring they had 24 children on their taxes to get more money, ''Al'' gets audited (in spite of it being a joint account) and is almost sent off the prison, all because [[ItMakesSenseInContext she refused to give some of her hair to the balding wife of a millionaire.]]

** And then there were the moments involving Kelly. One episode involved Marcy and Peg getting tickets to a stage performance of ''TheJeffersons'' and dragging their husbands along with them. Al and Jefferson forced Bud and Kelly to go in their place, disguised as them. At one point during the performance, Marcy starts talking dirty to Kelly, who she thinks is Jefferson, and mentions what they could do while the lights are out. The play ends with this exchange.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Name a sitcom involving Ron Leavitt and Michael G. Moye that was cancelled after 11 seasons without a proper finale, and where the cast didn't find out until after the last season ended. Is your answer ''Married... with Children''... or ''The Jeffersons''?

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: For each and every single Bundy, especially Al; were their horrible lives brought upon themselves by that fact they're all some degree of lazy, obnoxious {{Jerkass}},, or did they become that way ''because'' of how horrible their lives are, after years of bitterness and misery have sunken in? Which caused which here?

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorsSavingThrow: It's hard to overstate just how much the character of Seven was reviled by the fans, the cast, and (eventually) the writers. He was unceremoniously dumped and had his face slapped on the side of milk carton with not one single character caring enough to notice it.

* GrowingTheBeard: The show became much, much funnier when {{Flanderization}} kicked in and the show turned into a live-action cartoon, while still keeping the main themes and jokes, though some have stated that the show grew the beard when Terri Rakolta complained about the show's crude humor and [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity more people started to tune in to see what she was talking about.]]

* MisaimedFandom: The show tends to attract fans from the right wing, particularly men's rights activists, who see Al Bundy as a hero standing up for traditional values and masculinity fighting against "social justice warriors", not realizing that the show is ''parodying'' such notions by showing Al as loser whose situation is as much a result of his willful ignorance as it is the result of women, fat people, the government, etc. The showrunners were well aware of this fandom and mocked it by making Al a fan of ''Psycho Dad'', a show that is about an ultraviolent lunatic who's also a "durn good pa", that eventually goes off the air because the star becomes disturbed by the kinds of people who like his work.

It's also quite surprising given the number of jokes aimed at the expense of Republicans, considering that the GOP-leaning ''National Review'' praised it for its alleged conservative values.
