All In The Family characters[]

This is the list of main and supporting characters from the All in the Family television series.

Main characters[]

  • Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor)- cantankerous, somewhat boorish, prejudiced, ignorant Queens loading dock foreman and part-time weekend taxicab driver. Despite his bigotry ways, he is not motivated by malice. Though he doesn't show it, he genuinely loves his daughter, wife, grandson, and even his son-in-law despite constantly arguing with him.
  • Edith Bunker (Jean Stapleton)- long-suffering, honest, nice, somewhat ditzy wife of Archie who has a heart of gold; housewife, also a working volunteer at the Sunshine Home for the Aged in later episodes.
  • Gloria Bunker-Stivic (Sally Struthers) - Archie and Edith's daughter who appears in seasons 1-8. She appears to be a mix of both her parents with the kind nature of her mother but the stubbornness of her father.
  • Michael Stivic (Rob Reiner) - Gloria's husband, Archie's liberal-minded son-in-law, who Archie often refers to as "Meathead", who appears in seasons 1-8. While goodhearted and well-meaning, he can be just as if not more stubborn and opinionated than Archie.
  • Stephanie Mills (Danielle Brisebois) - Edith's grandniece, who first appears in seasons 8-9; continues on in the series Archie Bunker's Place.
