Peg BundyPeg Bundy - Katey Sagal played housewife, Peg Bundy, the creator of  the 'Mr. Empty Pants' cartoon character on the domestic situation comedy MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97. Peg's art career began after she pick-pocketed her husband's wallet. Angry, he chastised her and said "Never leave me with empty pants again." The expression inspired the name of cartoon character which Peg developed into a comic feature for Modern Gal magazine featuring "a hapless loser" of a man (her husband, Al). The name 'Mr. Empty Pants' was a sexual put-down for Al's lack of manhood.

After Playgirl magazine wanted Al as a centerfold (with bikini-clad babes), a jealous Peggy killed off Mr. Empty Pants saying "I couldn't handle your happiness, so I killed you (Crushed by a meteorite shaped like a lady's shoe). "Did I suffer?" asked Al? "Sure!" quipped Peggy.
