Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
Ed O'Neill assumes the real reason the show was cancelled was because the local stations who carried reruns of the series begged Sony, the show's producer, not to produce any more episodes because the rights were so expensive. Reportedly, stations paid Sony $1 million per episode to carry the show.
Daddy, you're pointing it at the wrong way!
Al: Not if there's a God.
Since the show's original theme song "Love and Marriage" has been removed from all Region 1 DVD releases of the series, the songwriting credit is generally removed from the DVD versions of these episodes. However, the credit erroneously remains in a few episodes.
Due to music licensing issues, the opening theme song "Love and Marriage" sung by Frank Sinatra is omitted from episodes released by Sony in North America beginning with the third season onward. A generic instrumental piece of music replaces it. In 2013, Mill Creek Entertainment acquired the DVD rights from Sony and beginning with season three, "Love and Marriage" has been restored to the opening and closing.
