The Bundy family never fit the mold of a typical sitcom. In fact, that was basically the whole point of the show. But breaking boundaries also meant crossing some lines. Looking back, there are a whole lot of moments in Married... with Children that simply wouldn't fly today.

For one thing — and at the risk of stating the obvious — Al Bundy regularly fat-shamed women.

In fact, Al seems to have a fat joke at the ready for every occasion. Of course, the character was never meant to be a role model, but if the show aired today, his jabs would only be tolerated in small doses — if at all. What wouldn't be acceptable is how the show itself openly mocks curvy women.

Married… with Children would often place plus-sized women in embarrassing and unflattering situations.

In the season eleven episode "Crimes Against Obesity," several women enter Al's shoe store to confront him about his rude behavior — and two of them get stuck trying to walk through the door. That's a fat joke written into the show — not one of Al's fat-shaming remarks. Although the episode has plenty of those, too.
