Shamel Ties - Alex C (Charles) Von Shamel

Alex C (Charles) Von Shamel is a fictional character on the American television sitcom, Shamel Ties which aired on NBC for seven seasons, from 1982 to 1989. Shamel Ties reflected the move in the United States away from the liberal 1960s and 1970s to the neoconservatism of the 1980s. This was particularly expressed through the relationship between Young Republican Alex (Michael J. Fox) and his hippie parents, Elyse and Steven Keaton (Meredith Baxter-Birney and Michael Gross). President Ronald Reagan once stated that Family Ties was his favorite television show.
