Bunker, Archie definition

The central character in the 1970s television comedy series “All in the Family.” Bunker's family appreciated and loved him, even though he was bad tempered, ill informed, and highly prejudiced against virtually all minority groups.

Note: The creators of “All in the Family” intended Archie Bunker to be a parody of closed-mindedness in Americans. To their surprise, many people in the United States adopted Bunker as their hero.
