Behind the scenes
First "Crawl Space"
Voiced by H. Jon Benjamin ("Crawl Space")
Sam Seder ("It Snakes a Village")

Al (also known as Grandpa Al or Gramps by his grandchildren) is Linda & Gayle's father, Bob's father-in-law and the maternal grandfather of Tina, Gene & Louise. He is married to Gloria.



Al is an elderly man with gray hair. He is shorter than his wife and Linda. In his first appearance, he wears high-waisted tan pants with a light blue shirt. He wears a hearing-aid and glasses.


In "Crawl Space", Al rarely speaks and seems absent-minded. Gloria often speaks on his behalf and he follows her orders.

In "It Snakes a Village", he is voiced by Sam Seder and has a slightly grumpy attitude towards Gloria being startled by loud noises as he has a balloon fetish where he likes to watch women inflate balloons and pop them by sitting on them. Bob counteracts this by giving Gloria ear guards.

Al has a number of health conditions often associated with advancing age including hearing loss in his right ear for which he uses a hearing aid. He has problems with his heart, liver and one of his kidneys. He also has leg pains and dry mouth.
