Lear founded the character of Archie Bunker on his own father, Herman Lear, and Alf Garnett, the character from the BBC1 sitcom Till Death Us Do Part, based on All in the Family.  Archie behaves rudely and presumptuously, largely defined by his bigotry towards a diverse group of individuals: black, Hispanic, “commies,” gays, hippies, Jews, Asians, Catholics, “liberal women,” and Polish-Americans are frequent targets of his offenders. Over the course of the series, it becomes clear that Archie`s prejudices are not motivated by wickedness, but a combination of the time and environment in which he grew up and a general misogyny. Archie himself is presented as a striver, affectionate father and, deep down, a decent man; Yet he is in a bad mood and often tells his wife Edith, who is distressed, to “choke” and “choke.” Serial creator Norman Lear admitted that his father treated Lear`s mother like this.

The licensee will also produce a digital collection of characters, trading cards, emoticons and stickers, which will be published at Comic-Con International 2018.
