Product Details


Product Description

An early milestone in urban TV comedy, Sanford and Son was an immediate critical and audience favorite when it debuted in the early '70s, signaling the arrival of one of TV's most memorable characters: Cantankerous-but-lovable junk dealer Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx). An African American answer to "Archie Bunker," widower Sanford and his "Dummy" son Lamont (Demond Wilson) run a family junk business in Watts, dreaming up schemes to strike it rich. Outspoken and outrageous, Sanford serves up big laughs as he skewers stereotypes, forever threatening, "How'd you like one across your lip?" Aided by a colorful cast that includes acid-tongued Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page), Sanford and Sons provided a showcase of black talent of all generations, featuring guest stars like Lena Horne and episodes written by Richard Pryor. Timely and topical during its highly-rated five-year run (1972-1977), Sanford and Son emerged as one of the decade's biggest TV hits, inspiring producer Norman Lear to develop more barrier-breaking shows like The Jeffersons and Good Times. Aspect Ratio: 1.33:1 Number of discs: 17 Rated: Unrated Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment DVD Release Date: October 28, 2008 Run Time: 3331 minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars Fred G Sanford. The G as in Great! May 20 2013
By Taser Me TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to enjoy this program a lot when I was a kid growing up in the '70s. It was an enormously popular program in its day and Foxx and Wilson were pretty big stars.

As much as I remembered liking this show, I was hesitant to order for a long time because of the many reviews I read that said after season 3 or 4, the quality and humour of the show nosedived. Earlier in the year when Amazon was selling the complete set for a ridiculously low price, I threw caution to wind and ordered it thinking that if three or four of the six seasons were good, I would still get my money's worth. I am just about to start on the final disc of season 6, and while the early seasons are indeed supeior to the later seasons, the later seasons are still very funny. If anyone is wavering about purchasing the set for the same reason I was, waver no more. Go for it. The same humour from the early years is still present in the later years just not as much. It must be noted that the hilarious clashes between Esther and Fred occur much more often in the later seasons than in the early seasons. Esther calling Fred a "fish-eyed fool" or an "old heathen" never gets tiresome.

Lots of great episodes in this series, but my favourite is "Fred & Carol & Fred & Donna" from season 2. After watching it, I had to immediately replay it to catch all the dialouge I missed the first time as I had been laughing so loudly.

There have been many complaints from reviewers about how this set is packaged: all the discs stacked on a single spindle. I hadn't seen such packaging prior to this set, and while it is not as convenient as conventional packaging, it isn't as terrible as some have indicated. Here's what I have been doing to get around this inconvenience.

Great show! Still has me laughing for hours, but packaging needs improvement. The DVDs are stacked on top of each other which makes it easier for them to scratch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value for the Money June 20 2009
By Nick
Format:DVD
This package brought back memories of days gone by.
I still recall watching this show when it was first aired and this package made it inexpensive to get the whole series all at once.
In the past when I wanted to obtain a series it was a long wait for each season to be released. Getting them all at once made the wait all that much shorter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy
Although somewhat dated, thoroughly enjoying watching comedy that is real comedy, not the profane laced sexual drivel that passes for comedy these days!

A great sitcom show from the 70's that is still just as funny today. The only downside was that the complete edition came in bulk packaging with all of the DVD's stacked together. Read more
