Character Bio

Buck the Dog photo
Buck (played by Michael, trained by Steven Ritt) was the first family dog, a Briard; voice-over by writer/producer Kevin Curran; on special episodes Buck is voiced by Richard "Cheech" Marin. From season eight on, Buck's voice was provided by staff member Kim Weiskopf. He is often "heard" by the audience through voice-overs that tell what is on his mind. Like the human Bundys, he is just as lazy, insulting and sarcastic to the rest of the family, making snide remarks about Kelly's intelligence and Bud's inability to find a date. In spite of this, Peggy dotes on him, sometimes even cooking for him. Though extremely lazy, Buck has a huge, insatiable sexual appetite, having at one point impregnated all the female dogs in the neighborhood.

Buck died at one point in the series to allow Michael, the dog that portrayed him, to retire. Buck went to animal heaven, and was reincarnated as Lucky, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In later seasons, Buck/Lucky would occasionally serve as the narrator in the second half of a two-part episode, recapping the events of the first part.

Buck's last episode, No. 1003 "Requiem for a Dead Briard" ends with the following message on the screen: "Dedicated to Buck the Dog who with this episode begins a well earned retirement and hopefully a nice gig at stud. We'll miss you, Buddy, lift a leg. - The Producers."

Retired at the age of twelve-and-a-half, Michael died about nine months later on May 28, 1996.
