Archie Bunker, played by Carroll O’Connor, is a character from the 1970s sitcom All in the Family. Archie was a grumpy WWII veteran and a blue-collar conservative who was known for his bigoted opinions and resistance to change. He was often at odds with his liberal son-in-law, Mike (aka Meathead), played by Rob Reiner, and tolerated by his long-suffering wife, Edith who was played by Jean Stapleton. “Stifle yourself” was a phrase frequently directed by Archie to Edith when he wanted her to stop talking.
To tie into the 1972 presidential election, All in the Family was promoted with election-themed merchandise.
