Archie Bunker is the fictional character from the television show, All in the Family, a 1970's sitcom about Archie (Carroll O’Connor), his wife Judith ( Jean Stapleton), his daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and her husband Mike (Rob Reiner) living their everyday life. O’Connor portrayed Archie as a conservative blue collar father reacting to the world changing around him. This show portrayed the older conservative generation and the younger, more liberal generation interacting together in a lighthearted fashion while presenting political content humorous enough for the audience to enjoy.  

In 1972, a spoof of the presidential campaign was made with collectable items featuring Archie and the family.
