Archie Bunker was a fictional character in the long-running and top-rated American television sitcoms All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place. He was a reactionary, bigoted, blue-collar worker and family man, played to acclaim by Carroll O'Connor. The Bunker character was first seen by the American public when All in the Family premiered in January 1971. In 1979 the show was retooled and renamed Archie Bunker’s Place due to the departure of family members Gloria and Michael, finally going off the air in 1983. Bunker lived in the borough of Queens in New York City—many sources say in the Corona neighborhood, although that neighborhood was never referenced on All in the Family itself. TV Guide once named Archie television's greatest character of all time.
