Your HOLIDAY SOR-BAY: Dragnet: The Big .22 Rifle for Christmas and Mike and Gloria Stivic had a baby on CBS-TV's All in The Family.
Mike and Gloria Stivic had a baby on
CBS-TV's All in The Family.
Joseph Michael Stivic was the son of Michael and Gloria Stivic, and grandson of Archie and Edith Bunker, and was born during the sixth
season of All In The Family. The character first
appeared as a newborn baby in the two-part episode "Birth of the Baby"
which aired on December 15 & 22, 1975. In 1976 the Ideal Toy Company
released a 14-inch "Joey Stivic doll" (called "Archie Bunker's
Grandson") which was billed as the "first anatomically correct
male doll." The doll inspired mild controversy at the time, and is a
collectors' item today.
