Sanford and Son

Series Description

Sanford And Son was a 30 minute comedy series on NBC about a 65-year-old bigoted, stubborn, grumpy, Afro-American man named Fred Sanford who, along with his 34-year-old son Lamont, ran a junk business in Los Angeles, California. Fred somehow managed to find ways to get Lamont to do most of the work on their junk business even though Lamont was really only there because he knew that dad needed him. Fred was also always coming up with some "get rich quick" scheme that would backfire and Lamont would have to help him out of the jam.

  1. I really liked this show and laughed a lot most of the time. I think they picked the right actors for it.

    1. I know Mike's father never missed an episode.

  2. Watched this a few times; didn't particularly care for it; not sure why though.


    1. Some of the episodes were funny but you can only take so much of it before it got old. At least to me any way.


Thanks for stopping by.
