All in the Family was a critically acclaimed but controversial 1971-1979 sitcom starring Carroll O'Connor as the dim-witted conservative and prejudiced Archie Bunker, Jean Stapleton as his square but jolly wife Edith, Rob Reiner as Archie's left-wing son-in-law Mike Stivic and Sally Struthers as Archie's daughter and Mike's wife Gloria. The scripts were written by Norman Lear. The Simpsons have parodied this show a few times.

References to All in the Family in The Simpsons[edit]

Picture Season Episode number Episode name Reference
Those Were the Days.png 9 181 "Lisa's Sax" The beginning scene parodies the theme song for the show, with Homer and Marge singing a re-worked version of the theme song "Those Were the Days". After the song, Homer sees Bart and calls him "meathead", the insult Archie frequently threw at his son-in-law, Mike.
10 206 "Bart the Mother" Bart quotes Archie by saying "Ipso, fasto" to Lisa.
All in the family 1999.png 216 "Homer to the Max" One of the FOX shows advertised is All in the Family 1999. It depicts Archie living together with a feminist, a Jew and a black man, but he tells viewers that he "likes them all." This a reference to later spin-offs of All in the Family which tamed down Archie's bigotry and intolerance.
219 "Make Room for Lisa" While reading the Bill of Rights, Homer sits in Archie Bunker's chair at the museum.
13 276 "Brawl in the Family" The episode's name is a parody of the show's name.
