Al Bundy used his toilet with great frequency.

The 4077th MASH had a latrine.

Well, maybe I messed up mentioning All in the Family, but I purposely left out MASH, since I remember many latrine jokes.

Still, most shows DON'T show people taking a dump. So the argument still stands. (or sits if you're a woman.)

^ No, it's cool.

The Brady Bunch had a shared adjoining bathroom separating the girls' and boys' rooms.

Of course, there was NO TOILET in their bathroom!

No kidding? That's too much. I'll take your word for it, because it's been, oh, over 30 years since I've seen an episode!

If we're going to go by the "proof" that they haven't shown it, therefore nobody urinates or deficates in the future, then we have nearly 100% of all of the TV shows in history showing the same proof in their shows. By that reasoning, nobody did it in The Waltons, Brady Bunch, Growing Pains, All in the Family, I Love Lucy, How I Met Your Mother, WKRP in Cincinnati, Taxi, Cheers....
I must set the record straight here: All in the Family made TV history by making the "terlet" flush a running gag. I also remember an episode where Ma was looking for Archie and Mike said "He went upstairs and I think he's going to be awhile...he took the Daily News with him".
The toilet actually got third billing on Married With Children...

Thank Goodness no one in The Waltons ever used the bathroom, one could imagine with all those folks living in the same house (Especially later seasons) there was always be an hour long or more wait

Considering the setting for the Waltons. Both the era and it being out in the country would mandate outdoor plumbing. Loads of fun during the wintertime treking out to the outhouse.

At night it would have been chamber pots. [/gratitude for modern plumbing]
